The Senate has decided to contribute to immediate intervention in the humanitarian crisis in the North East with each Senator contributing N300, 000.
This is coming following the fraud that has trailed the North East Humanitarian gestures after over 21 companies have been found guilty of diverting food items and funds meant for the IDPs.
After constituting a 10-member ad hoc committee headed by Sen. Shehu Sani to conduct the probe, including a public hearing on the issue, the lawmakers have agreed to also contribute towards the cause.
The Senate alleged that there was nothing on ground to show that the companies had made supplies to IDPs, hence the need to rise up to the occasion.
The Senate, however, decided to contribute to immediate intervention in the humanitarian crisis in the area with each of them contributing N300, 000 towards an agreed donation of N31.5 million.
