By Comrade Abdullahi Ibrahim.

As concerned citizens, we cannot ignore the urgent need for action in addressing the critical humanitarian and social welfare challenges facing our nation, especially in the wake of recent events such as the Kuriga kidnapped students’ ordeal.

It’s evident that since the suspension of Honorable Betta Edu and the subsequent investigation into the activities of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Poverty Alleviation, no indictment or guilt has been found against her. Yet, the absence of her leadership has left a void in addressing pressing humanitarian crises, particularly in areas affected by insecurity and disasters.

The reinstatement of Honorable Betta Edu is not just a matter of administrative procedure; it’s a vital step towards ensuring that the ministry can effectively fulfil its mandate of providing relief and support to vulnerable households across the nation. In times of crisis, we need experienced and dedicated leadership to navigate the complexities of humanitarian interventions and social welfare initiatives.

The Renewed Hope initiatives and other social investment programs initiated under Honorable Betta Edu’s leadership have demonstrated tangible benefits for communities facing economic hardships. We must resume and strengthen these programs to alleviate the suffering of Nigerians grappling with the harsh realities of the current economic downturn.

Therefore, we urge the President to reconsider and act swiftly in reinstating Honorable Betta Edu as Minister of Humanitarian Affairs. Her proven track record, commitment to service, and dedication to uplifting the most vulnerable members of society make her the ideal candidate to lead the ministry during these challenging times.

Let us prioritize unity and humanitarian gestures by recalling Honorable Betta Edu to continue her invaluable work of bringing hope and relief to those in need. Together, we can overcome adversity and build a more resilient and compassionate society for all Nigerians.
