According to the United Nations, Nigeria has been sighted as the country with the highest internally displaced persons in the world with a figure of 1.5million.
Speaking on this issue, UN Resident Coordinator for Nigeria, Mr. Daouda Toure said, “We need to remind everyone that 1.5 million displaced people is one of the biggest figures as we speak today in the world.
“So the highest number of displaced people today in the world is in Nigeria. It is not in Iraq or in any other part of the world, it is here in Nigeria and we need to do something about it.
He further added, “We need to come and help them have a better future for their children. Many of them have lost their sources of livelihood and it will be difficult for them to find their feet.
“This is one reason why we should mobilise ourselves and resources to assist those directly affected by the activities of insurgents and is one of the key reasons for the World Humanitarian Day.”
