Oluremi Tinubu, the wife of the President-elect, has assured Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Nigeria that her husband will ensure that they all return to their homes.
She disclosed this while distributing food items to IDPs in Kuchingoro, Karamajiji and Gongola camps in the Federal Capital Territories (FCT), as part of activities to mark the inauguration of Bola Tinubu, the President-elect, on May 29.
Mrs Tinubu, who was represented at the occasion by the Women Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Betta Edu, assured that relocating the IDPs back home is part of the agenda of her husband.
“The wife of the President-elect, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has asked us to go to all the IDPs around Abuja as well as other NAPTIP homes and give them items that will help them to celebrate even as we are celebrating the president’s incoming.
“It’s a time for joy in Nigeria, it’s a time for peace, it’s a time for unity, it’s a time for celebration and Nigerians all over have been called upon to continue to pray for the incoming government and support them totally.
“We have given out over 5000 boxes of these items to the various camps and different persons. All of these are to ensure that while we are celebrating at Eagles Square [on May 29], they too will be celebrating in the various camps.”
When asked what the plans of the Tinubu administration were for the IDPs, she said: “His Excellency, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, as part of his action plans, has stated that there would be resettlement for every single person.
“He has also stated very carefully that he would put a lot of emphasis on healthcare, humanitarian services, and empowering Nigerians.”
