The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) on Wednesday donated relief materials to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Ekpiri Effiom/Obutong, Bakassi Local Government Area of Cross River.
The items donated included detergents, rice, noodles, cans of water, buckets, condiments and toiletries.
Speaking at the occasion, Dr Dakuku Peterside Director General of NIMASA, said the gesture was part of its social responsibility.
“This is part of our social responsibility. We have done a similar thing in other IDP camps in Bayelsa, Rivers, Borno, Admawa and Taraba.
“It is our own way of supporting the IDPs to live better lives,” he said.
Dakuku, who was represented by Mr Isichei Osamgbe, Deputy Director, Public Affairs, described the condition of IDPs as unfortunate and urged other spirited individuals and organisations to support to them.
