"When you look at the faces of the IDPs and the non-provision of facilities that will cater for their immediate health needs, it will be obvious that it is a serious problem.

"Where you find healthy people, they can engage in the pursuit of happiness, wealth creation and generation", he said.

Dogara said insurgency is an unfortunate occurrence and called on individuals, communities and the nation at large to ensure IDPs have facilities to care for their immediate needs.
