Agency ReporterThe National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Monday, distributed relief materials to 30,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Taraba.Director-General of NEMA, AVM Muhammadu Muhammad (retired) made this known at the official flag-off of the distribution of the items to the beneficiaries in the 16 local government areas, held in Jalingo.Muhammad, who was represented by Mr Maidalla Iliya, NEMA Head of Operations, Adamawa/Taraba Operations Office, said that the items comprised of both food and non-food materials.The D-G explained that the gesture was in line with the agenda of Hajiya Saadiya Farouk, the Minister of Humanitarian, Disaster Management and Social Development, on bringing succor to the internally displaced persons in the country.He, however, said that the items which include Rice (12.5kg), beans (25kg), vegetable oil, beverages, mattresses, blankets, mosquito nets among many others were to be distributed to all the 16 local government areas of the state.Muhammad also said that the approval was granted based on the assessment carried out earlier by a disaster assessment team in the agency which visited all the crisis-affected areas in the state.He advised the beneficiaries not to feel that they were compensated by the government, but those items were provided just to relieve them and sustain them for a moment.Muhammad therefore, gave assurance that the materials would get to the genuine people they were meant for, adding that the agency had developed a mechanism for ensuring efficient delivery of items to the targeted people.Our staff has been deployed to all the IDPs camps in the state to ensure efficient delivery of relief items to the targeted people, he said.Earlier, Mr Taninga Binga, Taraba State Commissioner for Special Duties and Humanitarian Affairs commended the Federal government for the assistance.Represented by Mr Samson Tijos, Secretary in the ministry, Binga expressed satisfaction with the quality and quantity of the materials provided by NEMA.READ ALSO:Windstorm destroyed 35 houses in Imo, says NEMAHe also thanked the federal government for considering the request made by Gov.
