Lalong seeks FG’s assistance to resettle Plateau IDPs

During the meeting, Lalong sought the support of the ministry in the rehabilitation and reintegration of Internally Displaced Persons in Plateau State, who are being returned to their ancestral homes.
He said since the symbolic closure of all IDP camps in the state, the state government has been doing a lot to enable them rebuild their homes and start life again.

Lalong said, “We are committed to ensuring that the peace we have restored to Plateau is consolidated. Peace cannot be fully consolidated without taking care of those that were displaced and disoriented. We want to see that they are comfortable in their original abodes and have means of livelihood so that they can forget the trauma of the past as they heal.”

The governor further said that the state government cannot bear the huge financial cost of resettling the returnee IDPs, hence the appeal for the assistance of the federal government through the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.
