Adamawa State has concluded arrangements to start relocating Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from NYSC Orientation Camp to Malkohi Camp in Yola South Local Government Area.
Mr Haruna Furo, Executive Secretary, Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency, made this known in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday.
He confirmed that about 1,000 IDPs, who indicated interest to be relocated from the NYSC Orientation Camp, would be merged with IDPs at Malkohi Camp.
Furo said that the decision would enable the state government to reopen the NYSC camp which was turned to an IDP camp in the last three years.
“We have already concluded arrangements to commence relocation of interested IDPs from NYSC camp to Malkohi Camp,’’ Furo said.
According to Furo, who is also the Permanent Secretary, Special Duties, the relocation will enable the IDPs, mostly farmers, to start farming again.
He urged that the IDPs should be assisted with inputs that would help them to get back into agriculture fast. (NAN)
