FG Committed To Promise On IDPs’ Welfare, Says Osinbajo

The Buhari administration is committed to its plan for a Conditional Cash Transfer Scheme and other social welfare interventions in order to ensure that no one is left behind in the march towards development, the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said.

He noted that there is an urgent need to “give real opportunity and hope to the 110 million extremely poor people in the country.”

The Vice President said this in Kano at a reception held at the Kano State Government House in honor of the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Mallam Garba Shehu.

Earlier, at the Internally Displaced Persons’ (IDPs) Camp School in Mariri, Kano, Prof Osinbajo told displaced children from Borno State not to lose hope, assuring them that the Federal Government is committed to securing their future.

Speaking at the school, where some 100 children from Borno state are receiving education and psychological therapy courtesy of the Kano state government, he said Buhari’s administration was committed to the Presidential Initiative for the North East (PINE) to take care of people affected by insurgency in the country.

He recalled the interaction the President had on Friday with the Victims Support Fund, VSF Committee, headed by Gen. Theophilus Danjuma in Abuja, assuring that besides the education of the children, the government was also interested in rebuilding places destroyed by terrorists.

He said PINE and the VSF have huge plans that had immediate, medium and long-term effects, which the Buhari administration will ensure are well implemented.
