The international body has announced plans to relocate its humanitarian coordination centre to Maiduguri to achieve more effective response to the challenges created by Boko Haram insurgency in north-eastern Nigeria.

After a humanitarian situation assessment visit to Borno State, UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator, Ms Fatma Samoura said that the move would also enable the organisation have direct access to affected areas.

She added that relocating the coordination centre from Abuja to Maiduguri had become necessary considering the condition at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps and communities hosting them.

“I have decided that the centre of coordination be moved from Abuja to Maiduguri and UN senior staff will be deployed accordingly.

“In the weeks to come, seasoned and top-notch staff will be deployed to really cater for the needs of the IDPs and the host communities.

“This is in order to scale-up support and enhance coordination of our humanitarian response in the light of the significant challenge that the crisis presents.

“This will also ensure that they are closer to the IDPs, emergency management bodies and the state authorities.”
