The Speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, yesterday, pledged to support the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Abuja with adequate food supply.
Dogara, who made the pledge in Abuja while flagging off a medical outreach and wellness initiative programme at the Karimajiji Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camp, noted that the IDPs needed more support.
He assured them that he would work closely with the Committee on IDPs to ensure that some of their needs such as school, hospital and feeding, were met.
He, however, noted that it was the responsibility of the federal government to meet and solve most of the challenges facing the IDPs.
”I will work hand in hand with the Committee on IDPs to ensure enough supply of food item.
“We will work with FCT to ensure the IDP children go back to school and if there is no school, one will be built,” he said.
The secretary, Directorate of Health Services, National Assembly, Dr Eme Moma-Efretuei, said that the wellness intervention initiative programe was designed to assess the disease burden of the displaced persons communities.
She maintained that her team would continue to carry out its assignments to ensure compliance with guidelines.
“This will ensure safety, quality and efficacy of pharmaceutical products in the state, ” she said.
