Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has announced that the Federal Government will unveil a national integrated framework for refugees, migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in September.
Osinbajo said the framework would integrate appropriate interventions through effective use of data, research and planning for the return, resettlement, rehabilitation and reintegration of all persons of concerned.
The acting president stated this at a ceremony to commemorate the 2017 World Refugees Day in Abuja, where he was represented by Hajiya Zainab Ahmed, Minister of State, Budget and National Planning.
Osinbajo said the new approach would be a shift from relief dependent measures to real and measurable durable solution strategies.
He thanked the governments of Cameroon, Chad and Niger who hosted and are still hosting Nigerian refugees at the time the insurgents were ravaging.
”This show of solidarity is what we need to survive and confront whatever challenges that we encounter both as a region and as individual nations,” Osinbajo said.
