The Federal Government (FG) in collaboration with the Cameronian government and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) will start the process of returning 91,000 Nigerian refugees from Cameroon as from February next month.
The collaboration, which was formed through a tripartite commission, has the sole responsibility of repatriating the refugees, who are at the Minawao refugee camp.
Head Humanitarian, Resettlement and Assistance department, Presidential Committee on the Northeast Initiative (PCNI) Dr. Sidi Ali said that the process has already begun.
He added that they are hoping that by the end of February the final process of bringing them back into the country will commence. Dr. Ali, who revealed that the refugees are desperate to return home, lamented poor funding.
