IDPS Appeal To Buhari On Improved Welfare

The Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at the Durumi Camp, Abuja, on Tuesday appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to provide basic social amenities at IDPs camps nationwide.

The Secretary of the IDPs Camps, Mr Bala Yusuf, made the call on the sideline of a visit by the Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution and some Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in Abuja.

Yusuf lamented that the IDPs camps in Abuja had no basic facilities while their members went through difficulties to access healthcare services.

He particularly lamented over the condition of one of their members, Malam Abdullahi Usman, who was involved in an accident while operating a commercial tricycle to earn a living.

Yusuf said that Usman was still being detained by the National Hospital, Abuja, over non-payment of N 350,000 bill.

He regretted that the IDPs had not been able to raise the money while the condition of Usman was deteriorating, and appealed to the National Hospital management to release their member.

According to him, the hospital treated the patient and gave them a bill of N387,455, out of which the IDP members paid only N85,000.
