Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in a camp in Jos, Plateau State, have received relief materials comprising of medical equipment, bedding, clothing, cooking materials and books from Stanel Oil.

The materials were given to the IDPs as part of the company’s social responsibility to its community.

The Chief Executive Officer of Stanel Oil, Stanley Uzochukwu, while donating the various relief materials to the displaced persons in Zang Commercial School camp, urged them not to lose hope of returning to their ancestral homes and to remain steadfast even as they look forward to returning to their homes.

The staff and management of the organisation also took time to interact with the displaced persons, believing that the public and private sectors needed to do more in assisting the displaced persons.

The Zang commercial school camp for the IDPs from Borno, Adamawa, Yobe States and parts of Plateau was established in 2014 to cater for those displaced by insurgents in the north eastern part of Nigeria. Over 4,000 persons are registered in the camp.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has recently directed the Ministry of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs to fast track the process of re-uniting the IDPs across the nation with their families. (Channel TV)
