Humanitarian minister applauds Buhari for touching lives of Nigerians through the ministry

The Honourable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajia Sadiya Umar Farouq has applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for using the ministry to positively touch lives of Nigerians.

The minister who spoke at the ground finale event marking the first Anniversary of the ministry, in Abuja, Friday indicated that the prevailing humanitarian and social challenges in the country prompted the President to create the Ministry.

She explained that the ministry came on board to institutionalize all government’s efforts towards social inclusion and response to disasters and humanitarian crisis while providing the much-needed coordination of Humanitarian interventions.

Farouq said the Ministry has the mandate to develop humanitarian policies and provide effective coordination of National and International humanitarian interventions; while ensuring strategic disaster mitigation, preparedness and response. “The Ministry is also charged with the responsibility of managing the formulation and implementation of fair focused social inclusion and protection programmes in Nigeria.

“So far for the one year we have been in existence, I would say it has been an eventful, challenging and rewarding journey.
“Challenging in the sense that the Ministry is saddled with the responsibility of overseeing responsibilities that were hitherto domiciled in other MDAs and also providing the much-needed coordination of humanitarian interventions in Nigeria.
“It is rewarding in the sense that when we visit the field and see beneficiaries whose lives are being changed by the FG humanitarian interventions, it leaves us with a sense of fulfilment that we are doing something worthwhile for humanity. ”
She said, the Ministry is leveraging on the experience and capacity of the Agencies under its purview in carrying certain functions, while providing leadership and coordination.
According to her despite the seemingly daunting situations the Ministry and its Agencies have provided humanitarian interventions and proactively developed structures to prevent and mitigate disaster. She said they are also building socio-economic resilience through the evolution of inclusive social safety net programmes.
The Director General NAPTIP, Dame Julie Okah-Donli commended the President for his wisdom in selecting an amazon to be the pioneer minister of the strategic ministry and thanked the minister on behalf of the millions of Nigerians whose lives have been elevated through the intervention of the ministry, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
