Refugees in Yobe receive special care under Maimala government.
Premium Times report on refugees in Yobe State is a rabbit story
Ali Musa Yawal
In the 12 years since the outbreak of Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria, millions of people have been injured. This is something everyone knows, before the battle against Boko Haram was defeated and they drove thousands of people from their homes. Some of these people fled to live with relatives, some migrated to other towns such as Cucareta town in Yobe State, and some started camping in the refugee camps before they were closed.
Likewise, after peace was achieved in much of Yobe State, the government, in collaboration with aid organizations, closed all refugee camps in the state to help these refugees return home. .
But some of the refugees did not return home because they found shelter outside the city, some started businesses, farmed, and others traveled to Barema, where they were paid to find clothes for their families. Some people close to Yobe State University have even occupied shops and are touching their business.
Even now, in our current situation, there is no shortage of people in need of food assistance, but the State Emergency Relief Agency (SEMA), which is responsible for providing assistance, can do its best to distribute food and other necessities.
Yobe State’s emergency response agency stands out among its peers nationwide for having detailed information on how to provide assistance to refugees and other disaster victims. Anyone looking for more information can visit the SEMA Communications page, which has a fascinating collection of pictures, videos and word-of-mouth information from people across the state who have benefited from this support.
The work done by SEMA shows the hard work that Governor Mai Mala Buni is doing to help the people affected by Boko Haram to revive their lives.
Last week, UNDP chief representative Mohammed Yahaya and his team visited Yobe to help the government to return refugees to their homes and rebuild their lives.
As reported in various newspapers, the UNDP chief representative and his team were led by Governor Mai Mala Buni to Mandunari town in Gujba Local Government which is the only town in the list of towns where the people have not returned since their expulsion. when Boko Haram left their homes.
UNDP vows to help the state government to ensure that the people of Mandunaris are returned to their homes in the right way.
Everyone who follows the efforts of the Mai Mala Buni government to support the refugees who have been affected by Boko Haram knows that giving aid is one of the resolutions of this government.
It is for these reasons that I consider the report published by the Premium Times with the title “Yobe State Refugees, Whom Boko Haram Displaced, The Government Abandoned, Starvation” as baseless which was done by a bit of deception and slander. people with slander.
First of all, it is not a matter of dispute to say that the Boko Haram attack has harmed people even today. It will take a long time to forget the effects of Boko Haram, especially in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states.
But according to the Premium Times newspaper, Abbari is one of the 445 Hijra camps in Yobe state.
Abbari neighborhood is not a new neighborhood for everyone who knows Damaturu, but it has developed again because some people who fled in the past made their homes there. So it is not a refugee camp as some people think.
