Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has promised a female law graduate at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in the state automatic employment.
Obaseki gave the hint in while receiving members of the Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows Alumni Association of Nigeria at Government House in Benin on Monday.
The governor who said that it was unusual to grow a generation in a refugee camp noted that more information about the female refugee, who recently concluded her university degree in law, would be required in order to process her employment. He also stressed the need to integrate the people in the camp into the society.
Obaseki who said the school built inside the camp would be commissioned in a week to allow for its use by the inmates added that his government had no choice but to make the IDPs part of its focus. He said that his administration was committed to the welfare of people in the state, whether indigent or non-indigent.
He, however, noted that the responsibility of rehabilitation of the people in the IDP camp should not be left to the state government alone.
The governor who sued for peaceful coexistence in the country emphasized that no meaningful development could be made in a society devoid of peace.
