Plateu State refugees receive relief material

23 February 2015, 19:29

Plateau -  Senator representing Plateau North in the National Assembly, Gyang Nyam Pwajok, has suggested concerted efforts to address the plight of locals displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency.

Pwajok, who is the gubernatorial flag bearer of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), called on philanthropists, corporate bodies and well meaning Nigerians to assist the refugees.

“People should come together no matter their ethnic or religious differences to fight their common enemy,” he said in Jos where he visited some IDPs housed at the Centre for Caring, Empowerment and Peace Initiative (CCEPI).

The centre is said to be housing more than 19 000 victims of terror mostly women and children.

Pwajok presented relief material worth millions of naira to the displaced persons on behalf of the federal government through the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Executive Director of CCEPI, Dr Rebecca Dali, said the IDPS, who are from the North-Eastern part of Nigeria needed more intervention and assistance.
