Senator Gyang Makes Case for IDPs

Senator Gyang

June 27, (THEWILL) – A member of the National Assembly representing Plateau North Senatorial District in Plateau State, Senator Istifanus Gyang, has made a case for the welfare of internally displaced persons living in the constituency.

Senator Gyang said he appealed for the resettlement of the IDPs through the 500 Housing Unit programme of the Federal Government but had not received the desired response from the authorities.

The lawmaker also claimed that he took the initiative to facilitate and undertake the reconstruction of destroyed communities so as to resettle the IDPs, in conjunction with the communities and community-based organisations, as well as mini-housing projects in the Miangoin Bassa, Riyom and Barkin Ladi Local Government Areas of the state.

Lamenting the gravity of the hardship facing internally displaced persons in different parts of the country, Gyang vowed to continue to call the attention of the entire National Assembly and indeed, the whole world to their plight.
