Nigeria: CISLAC encourage FG to attend to IDPs predicaments

- Advertisment -

The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Center (CISLAC) is looking for ways to guarantee fast appropriation of national strategy on Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Nigeria.

The CISLAC Program Officer, Mr Austin Erameh, said that there was requirement for earnest measures to establish administrative structures for the insurance and welfare of IDPs in the nation.

According to him, IDPs are individuals who have been compelled to escape their homes because of human or cataclysmic events.

Erameh said: “This distinction unfortunately reduces the attention that is typically given to their plights, especially in developing regions of the world like in Nigeria.

“The onus remains on the government to ensure that the draft policy on IDPs is adopted; the government needs to agree that this document is a priority for us.

“This is because it does not speak very well of Nigeria as a country that in spite of the millions of people that were affected by insurgency in just the North-East alone.

“ Let alone the entire forced displacement that also occurred during the flooding and communal clashes that we see everyday, that the country still lacks holistic law or policy.’’

He encouraged the legislature to organize the entry of the law in order to address the situations of IDPs in Nigeria.
