The Federal Government on Tuesday in Abuja lunched the National Policy on the Internally Displaced persons (IDPs).

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar farouq, said the policy provided a framework for national responsibility towards prevention and protection of citizens and in some cases, non-citizens, from “incidences of arbitrary and other forms of internal displacement”.

She said: “The policy spells out principles guiding humanitarian assistance and implementation of durable solutions in situations of internal displacement in Nigeria and has adopted the human rights-based approach and its principles.”

Federal Commissioner, National Commission for Refugee, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI), Imaan Sulaiman-Ibrahim, said the policy was a demonstration of political will towards providing durable solutions and mitigating the plights of all IDPs in the country.

She said the launch of the policy had provided a veritable forum for enhanced awareness that would ensure common objectives and cardinal trust of the IDP policy document among key stakeholders.
