The Speaker, House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, on Tuesday solicited Britain's support in resettling people displaced from their communities in North-East by the insurgency in the area.

Dogara made the appeal for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) when ‎he received Britain's Minister of State, Baroness Joyce Anelay, in Abuja.

He urged the country to consider convening a special aid conference for rebuilding of the North-East as recently done for the victims of civil war in Syria.

He added that as members of the global community, the displaced Nigerians‎ deserved global security and support.

‎Dogara thanked the minister of state for the tactical training and retraining of troops as it related to the war against insurgency.

While appreciating Anelay’s support through the Department for International Development (DFID), for the legislative process, he lamented the plight of orphans and displaced people across the country.

“We will like to seek assistance from Britain, explore the possibility of convening an international donor conference just like it was done recently in UK for Syria.

“It will be able to help us resettle these IDPs. We all acknowledge that Nigeria is part of the global community, we are global citizens.

“It is not only citizens of Nigeria that are caught up in this unfortunate incident, but global citizens; so, I believe that the global citizens ought to offer some kind of support and security as well.”

According to Dogara, we are winning war against terror, the problem is managing these victories and we have to settle them as soon as possible.

He also assured the minister that the lower chamber had been gender-friendly, taking gender issues as priority, a proof of which was their headship and membership‎ of committees in the house.

Responding, Analey said she had noted the speaker's request, and would convey it to the government of her country.

“I hear so much from my colleagues and the secretaries that have been here in the last years.

“They all come back with one message and that is to say that, the people who are victims in any conflicts are the children‎. So I note the point you made and I accept.”

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the British minister of state was in the National Assembly to promote gender issues. (NAN)
