Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, has commended the actions taken by UNMAS in Nigeria, the armed forces and North East Development Commission, NEDC, towards raising awareness and mitigating the risks posed by unexploded ordnance, mines, and other explosive remnants of war in conflict-affected communities.

A statement signed by her media aide, Grace Osuji said as part of the ministry’s efforts to raise mine awareness, NEDC in collaboration with a local partner, Makesafe Humanitarian Safety and Demining Services is currently organising a series of mine risk awareness training for communities in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States.

According to Farouq, the aim of the International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action is for an environment free of mines and other UXOs where people can live and work in a safe atmosphere.
