STORYLINE
The UN humanitarian office (OCHA) said Nigeria’s thriving private sector is stepping up their commitment to support their fellow Nigerians following a visit to two camps in Maiduguri, Borno State this week, where they heard the stories and struggles of men, women, and children who have been uprooted from their homes.

OCHA said the humanitarian crisis in north-east Nigeria, now entering its tenth year, is one of the most severe in the world. The ongoing crisis, triggered by a regionalized armed conflict, has led to widespread forced displacement. 1.8 million Nigerians, predominantly woman and children, are internally displaced and 6.2 million people are in need of urgent assistance.

SOUNDBITE (Hausa) Hawa Garba Muhammed, internally displaced women from Molai:
“We are happy to receive the delegation, and we welcome them. They should help us with food. They should help us with shelter. They should help us with water. These are the problems we have, and we need schools for our children too. This is the help we want from them, as it is weighing us down. That is our problem.”

OCHA said leading Nigerian bank executives were compelled to action when they met with community leaders, women and children as part of the Nigeria Humanitarian Fund – Private Sector Initiative. Companies and banks reiterated their commitment to this platform, emphasizing the need for Nigerians to take ownership of the crisis.

SOUNDBITE (English) Ibukun Awosika, Chairperson, First Bank of Nigeria Limited:
“I’m looking at the children, and I see the problems of the future because if they don’t get what they really need in terms of education, healthcare, support and a stable family life; then we are going to have other problems to deal with in future. It just shows why it’s a national problem.”

Awosika led a delegation that included Biyi Olagbami, Executive Director of Ecobank, Kyari Bukar, Co-Chair of the NHF PSI Steering Group, and Olumide Akpata, Senior Partner of Templars Law Firm, many of whom visited camps for internally displaced people in Borno State for the very first time.

The NHF-PSI is a ground-breaking global initiative created in Nigeria and managed by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs on behalf of the UN Humanitarian Coordinator. The initiative will see Nigerian companies join donor countries in pooling donations and resources together. The platform will catalyze on collaboration to identify innovative solutions and generate resources for a more effective response.

SOUNDBITE (English) Edward Kallon, United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria:
“This is the type of partnership I’m looking forward to. I bring the United Nations, I bring the private sector to interface with the Government, so that can all come together with our various strategies and strengths so that we can address the problem better.”

To date, the Nigeria Humanitarian Fund has raised 90 million USD in contributions and pledges, with support from 17 donor countries. Business leaders involved in the initiative aspire to raise 80 million USD towards the humanitarian response. OCHA said the unique collaboration introduces an unprecedented opportunity for Nigerian businesses to lead the way in bringing Nigerians together for Nigeria.
