the comfort there is minimal. Let me also assure you that in no distant time
from now, you will all return to your abodes as the Federal Government is
committed to ensuring that your safety is paramount.

but as a corporate socially responsible Agency, we are concerned about your
welfare; this is why we are here to support you the best way we can,”

welfare and safety is guaranteed.

continue to work with relevant institutions in the country to provide relief to
all Nigerians experiencing one disaster or another.
“As a sign of love and in
recognition of the need to continuously offer succor to alleviate the
challenges and the sufferings of our internally displaced
brothers and sisters spread across Nigeria, NIMASA brings you glad tidings. We
have come not with a heavy heart, but with a message of love and assurance,
