World bodies are not happy with Nigerian government officials, as they did not attend the meeting held about the Boko Haram insurgency at the United Nations General assembly in New York.
Specifically, United States and European Union have been angered by the absence of Nigeria’s United Nations Mission at a meeting to discuss and proffer solution to the problems of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
Recall, the United Nations, Chad, Niger and Cameroon had on Friday appealed for aid for millions of people in the Lake Chad Basin region forced to flee the violence of Boko Haram and hit with repeated droughts and floods that have brought malnutrition and disease.
According to the United Nations aid chief Stephen O’Brien on Friday, while the radical Islamist militants operate out of Nigeria where most people have been displaced by their attacks, Nigeria did not send anyone to the United Nations event.
US and European Union diplomats said they were disappointed that Nigeria did not attend the event chaired by O’Brien on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
The Nigerian UN mission was not immediately available to comment on its absence.
