‘Presidential C’ttee on Northeast committed to safe return of IDPs’

The Presidential Committee on Northeast Initiative (PCNI) said it adopted proactive measures to speed up safe and successful resettlement of persons displaced by Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast region.

The PCNI Vice Chairman, Alhaji Tijjani Tumsa, told journalists on Thursday in Maiduguri, that the committee had organised a stakeholders’ forum to develop a rough copy of the return strategy.

Tumsa said that the measure was imperative to facilitate safe and sustainable return process, to encourage early recovery for the people to resume their normal lives.

“We acknowledge the overwhelming desire of these people to return to their homes after being displaced for over five years, we also understand the need for the return to be phased while ensuring basic services continue to be provided to the people as condition for the return,” he said.
