FG, focus on IDPs’ sufferings

I want the Federal Government to focus more on the plight of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the North East. There have been several reports on some government officials working at the camps but who have been diverting the items meant for these helpless people.

This is definitely not how to treat people who have gone through tragedies in their lives as a result of the  insurgency in their region.

I, therefore, want the Federal Government to specially focus on the situation in the IDP camps, as it is incomprehensible that people could be starving in the camps when the government has provided everything for them to survive on. If our people cannot manage the camp effectively, then the government should call on the United Nations to take over the administration of the camps. However, this will be a big slap on our face as a country. I keep wondering why our people are so greedy and have no fear of God. This sums up why our country is in the way it is at the moment. Why will any sane mind work towards profiting from the plight of the IDPs?

This is part of the corruption President Muhammadu Buhari is trying to wipe-out, and it is important that focus should be on the IDP camps as well.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) must embark on a massive investigation of those administering the IDP camps.
