The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), yesterday, said that it has so far registered a total of 11, 449 Nigerian returnees from the Republic of Niger at the transit camp in Geidam, Yobe State.
The agency also. Disclosed that it has transported about 7, 000 of them to their various states as at Tuesday, May 12, 2015.
This was contained in a statement from the Press Officer of NEMA, Ezekiel Manzo, in Abuja.
“Transportation of the returnees continues as more high capacity buses and vehicles have been engaged by NEMA to fully transport them to their various states. The agency is also continuing with the provision of basic supports at the transit camp,” it said.
The Director-General of NEMA, Muhammad Sani Sidi, remarked that the agency was fully committed to the transportation of the returnees to their states, affirming that the staff would remain at the transit camp until the last person leaves.
He said more relief supports have also been deployed to support them while at the camp.
“From the registration, the returnees are identified to be Nigerians from Borno, Taraba, Jigawa, Kano, Benue, Bauchi, Sokoto, Niger, Kebbi, Zamfara, Katsina, Yobe, Gombe, Adamawa, Nasarawa, Imo, and Delta states,” the statement concluded.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
