President Muhammadu Buhari has promised Nigerians displaced by insurgency in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States, that the government was doing everything possible to ensure they return home soonest.

President Buhari gave the assurance on Friday at the Makhio IDP camp in Yola, Adamawa State, which he visited.

“My government is doing everything possible to rebuild your homes, schools hospitals and roads to enable you go back to your homes,” the president said.

“Boko Haram will soon be a thing of the past,” he assured.

“I know that most of you are farmers and your farm land have been destroyed but let me assure you that you will soon go back and continue in your farming,” the president added.

Mr. Buhari commended the Adamawa State government for the support it has given the displaced persons.

He assured the Adamawa government that the Federal government would soon come to the aid of the state.

Earlier, the governor of Adamawa state, Umaru Jibrilla, told the president that the state was burdened by the number of displaced persons saying, “As I speak now about 10,000 IDPs from Central Africa Republic are expected in Adamawa in three days’ time”.

The Director General of NEMA, Sani Cidi, while welcoming the president said “in Adamawa we have so far received 15,754 internally displaced and we are expecting about 10,000 more”.
