Yobe State unfolds Post-Insurgency Recovery Plan

The Yobe State Government has unfolded “post-insurgency and recovery plans” for stakeholders and donor agencies in the humanitarian community after discussing efficient means of humanitarian coordination and delivery in the state. The Summit which held on March 24 in Damaturu, themed, ‘Consolidating Humanitarian Recovery Plans,’ addressed strategies for managing the returning Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in camps and liberated communities. Governor Ibrahim Gaidam described the post-insurgency Summit as “a positive step towards having a master plan of intervention that could mitigate wastage and duplication of effort” in the quest to positively impact all the victims of the insurgency in Yobe.” He said that the convening of the summit was prompted by the fact that the monumental scale of the humanitarian emergency meant that no government, agency or non-governmental organization, however endowed, can handle the situation alone. It was therefore expedient to bring “all stakeholders, including traditional and religious leaders, council chairmen, civil society organizations and faith-based organizations, together.” The Governor observed that a streamlined and coordinated intervention in humanitarian support and socio-economic assistance would maximize the desired impact on victims of insurgency and terrorism.  He stressed that the plan of action would also ensure value for money, adding: “No felt need of the victims shall be left out or assistance of any agency or organization discounted.”
