Buhari's IDP Relief Materials Is Missing, Seen It?

A truck load of relief materials sent to Taraba State for distribution to the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, by President Muhamadu Buhari has been declared missing.

The permanent secretary Taraba state Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Nuvalga Dan-Habi said the materials never arrived the supposed destination.

Dan-Habu made this disclosure while conducting newsmen round the venue where the relief materials were stored in Jalingo, Taraba state capital.

He recalled that just few weeks ago, he received a phone call from the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, North East zonal office Gombe, that twenty (20) trucks of relieve materials (Maize) were been sent by President Muhamadu Buhari for IDPs in Taraba state and the materials were on the way from Abuja to Taraba state.

He said the NEMA zonal office directed that the Taraba state Emergency Agency took the stock of the materials before distribution to the IDPs.

He stated that instead of the twenty trucks as directed and informed by the Gombe zonal office of NEMA, only nineteen (19) trucks of the materials arrived Jalingo.

“Instead of receiving 12,000 bags of Maize as we were informed by NEMA, only 11,400 reached us; I informed NEMA promptly on the development”‎.
