Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President
(Media & Publicity), in a statement on Monday said the President directed the ministry to always be mindful of the pathetic circumstances of the IDPs, and factor them into proposals for next year’s budget.
“You must help to improve their situation,” the President told the Permanent Secretary and his team of officials.
Oyemomi briefed President Buhari on the activities of his Ministry as well as the Ministry’s successes and challenges.
He asked for improved funding for the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development in the 2016 budget.
