Cross River State Government has been recognized globally for its effort in handling and managing the influx of refugees from Cameroon and other countries with adequate care and protection.
The International Institute of Humanitarian in collaboration with Swiss State Secretary for Migration and the United States Department of Population, Refugees and Migration lauded the efforts of the state government for their love, care and shelter for distressed refugees at the just concluded humanitarian law course in San Remo, Italy.
Out of more than 400 applications that were received from all over the world, 42 participants were selected from very tight selection process.
Remarkably, only Cross River State was selected to represent Nigeria in the humanitarian law course on refugees in San Remo, Italy, which demonstrate the enormous impact and diligent services been discharged by SEMA under the leadership of Ayade.
Gov. Ben Ayade of the state, who was represented by the Director General of SEMA, Mr Princewill Ayim, said the conference was designed to build capacity in the area of managing refugees and humanitarian services.
He said that the objective of the conference was to promote, protect and harmonise various practical applications and implementation at national and international levels.
The institute work in close collaboration with UNESCO, NATO, OIF, EU, ICRC, UNHCR, ECOSOC And the council of europe.
The institute has earned an international reputation as a center of excellence in the field of training, researchh and dissemination of all aspects of international humanitarian law.
I must commend Sir Ayade’s initiative in building the mental capacity of his aides, within and outside the country.
This initiative will enhance their services and give them the opportunity to compete favourably with their peers internationally.
