Boko Haram: Buhari enlists UN support in rehabilitation of IDPs

President Muhammadu Buhari is seeking the assistance of the United Nations and the international community in rebuilding parts of the country ravaged by insurgency.

He told to the visiting President of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Maria Fernanda Espinosa Garces about the pathetic condition of internally displaced persons in the country, lamenting that at least a million children neither know their parents, nor where they come from.

Briefing state house correspondents after the closed door meeting with President Buhari, Ms Espinosa Garces commended Nigeria for being a key part of the United Nations system, saying the country was well respected in the global body.

She also hailed President Buhari’s leadership of ECOWAS, and of the Lake Chad Basin Commission, pledging to call the attention of the international community to the “hurting effects” of the Lake Chad problem.
