The National Emergency Management Agency has received another batch of 160 stranded Nigerians from Libya. The coordinator of Lagos territorial office of NEMA, confirmed the development to newsmen on Friday, February 15, in Lagos.
More than 27,000 people have been killed in the three north-eastern states, according to United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), while thousands of women and girls have been abducted.

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has distributed relief materials to 1,000 victims of armed bandits attack in four communities of Kaiama local government area of Kwara state in the north central zone.
While I would agree with that position, I am also of the opinion that beyond the management drive, there must have been a resuscitation of the work ethics in the agency which was at its lowest ebb some five to six years back.
