The Federal Government has delivered a second consignment of relief materials to over 5000 Nigerian refugees in Barkinjaw, Messanga Ekol and environs in Akwaya Sub-Division, Manyu Division of South-West Region of the Republic of Cameroon.

It would be recalled that in May 2023, the first consignment of relief materials was successfully distributed to the affected refugees numbering 6,811 then. But some of the refugees had returned, remaining about 5, 000 as of last year 2023.

The first consignment of the relief materials comprised food items, such as bags of rice, beans, cartons of indomie noodles, sugar, milk, salt and non-food items like floor mats, clothing for women, men and children as well as first aid and basic medications.

This second consignment of the relief materials distributed were two truckloads of non-food items, comprising 100 cartons of toilet soap (64g x 46), 100 cartons of OMO detergent (100g), 2,000 pieces of bath towels, 500 packs of diapers (standard, 52), 300 packets of sanitary pad (24 packets/cartons), 2,000 pieces of wax prints (6 yards) and 2,000 pieces of blankets (GB 36G).

The items were delivered on Friday, 16th February and distributed on Saturday, 17th February. Due to the security situation of the area, the Consul General of Nigeria to the Southwest and Northwest Regions of Cameroon, Ambassador Lawal Bappah was represented and the items were distributed under the coordination of the Chief of Barkinjaw village, Chief Agwa, HRH Linus Agwa and the Divisional Officer (DO) for the area.

The Chief constituted a 15-man committee to carry out the distribution of the relief materials to the affected persons and host communities.

The Consulate-General of Nigeria, Buea had duly informed the Governor of the South West Region, H.E. Bernard Okalia Bilai about this positive development.

Responding to questions from journalists at the press conference held on Wednesday, 21st February at the Consulate, the Consul-General assured that the current administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is keen to restore normalcy to areas where there are crises in Nigeria and beyond the country.

“The current administration led by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is keen on the restoration of peace and normalcy, especially in the central areas of Nigeria where we have some crises, like Benue, Plateau, Kaduna and other states.

“As time goes by, this current government will ensure that people return to their places and live in peace and harmony,” said Bappah.
