The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, on Sunday appealed to journalists to monitor the distribution of relief materials donated to the victims of Boko Haram insurgency in Borno.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Maiduguri, the Director-General of the agency, Sani Sidi, noted that more than 50 trucks of such relief materials had been supplied by the Federal Government.

Mr. Sidi said that the monitoring would ensure fair distribution of the materials among the displaced persons.

The task is to ensure that the items go only to those affected, those in need and those that have been displaced and those in camps.

You will recall that President Goodluck Jonathan set up a presidential committee for the procurement and distribution of relief materials to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.

The committee has successfully completed its assignment and we have just started the distribution of the materials,” Sidi said.

He said the exercise would also be supervised by the some NEMA officials to ensure justice.

We expect all journalists to be the watchdogs to ensure that justice is done, so that the items are distributed to the affected persons.

We must commend the president for coming up with this relief apart from other plans and strategies to tackle insurgency.

The official said that although NEMA had registered more than 58,000 IDPs, there were others persons who had not shown up for registration in the camps.

In spite of this, Mr. Sidi said that the relief materials were enough for the IDPs.

The Federal Government approved the supply of 50 trucks of assorted relief materials to the displaced victims in the state.

Mohammed Wakil, the Minister of State for Power, presented the materials to the Chairman, Committee for IDPs, Jidda Shuwa, in Maiduguri on Saturday.
