President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday inaugurated a committee that will ensure that the huge population of Nigerians who have no homes following their displacement by Boko Haram return home.

The Presidential Committee on North East Initiative (PCNEI), led by General Theophilus Danjuma (rtd), is saddled with the responsibility of coordinating reconstruction efforts of the region which has been ravaged by insurgents.

According to the President, the committee will operate for only three years.
“The committee will be the apex coordinating body for all interventions in the region, including those of the family, national and international development partners.

“The committee is domiciled in the presidency and it is charged with the responsibility for developing the strategy, implementation framework for rebuilding the northeast region.
“It will exist for a period of three years while after it, it is envisaged that a long term regional development framework or entity may be established,” President Buhari stressed.
He called on the committee to approach their task with transparency.
