Mr Mustapha Ahmed, the Director-General, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has appreciated the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre(KSrelief) for its continuous donation to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the country.
He expressed the appreciation when he received a team from the KSrelief centre on Thursday in Abuja.
Ahmed, who commended the humanitarian agency for announcing its plans to provide further relief donations to the IDPs in Borno, Yobe and Kano State, lauded the centre for its past support to IDPs in Borno, Yobe and Zamfara.

The director-general assured that NEMA would continue to ensure proper distribution of the relief items meant for the target beneficiaries, especially those affected by disasters in the country.
He, however, appealed that the centre extended its support to the country, especially to those who were impacted by the 2022 flood disaster which ravaged so many communities.
