MINISTER of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, has commended the United Nations High Commission for Refugees in Nigeria, UNHCR, for the donation of two Prado jeeps to the ministry and five operational vehicles to the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons, NCFRMI.

Farouq, who gave the commendation during the handover of the vehicles by the Country Representative of UNHCR in Nigeria, Mme Chansa Kapaya, in Abuja, appreciated UNCHR’s support on behalf of the federal government.

“We appreciate the collaboration with UNHCR, one of our primary partners in this country. We have had a very good working relationship over the years.

“They have supported us in many ways in addressing issues of persons with concern.

“The vehicles will be used judiciously by the ministry in carrying out its activities in the field to support persons of concern,” she said.

Earlier, Kapaya said the donation of the vehicles was a token of appreciation for the working relationship between the ministry and UNCHR.

“It is a sign of partnership and also an effort to contribute to the enormous work you are doing on behalf of persons of concern which include IDPs, refugees, and asylum seekers.

A representative of the Federal High Commissioner, National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons, Senator Bashir Mohammed, and the Director, Refugee, and Migration, Ejibunu Tia Hassan, thanked UNHCR for the wonderful support received from UNHCR.

They said UNHCR has been supporting the activities of the commission and the donation of the vehicles is another giant stride that will help the commission to perform its mandate especially with the creation of new offices by the commission in states.
