Creative organisation says Nigeria not ready for post-insurgency era


IDPs camp

A creative organisation, Playback Nigeria, has decried what it termed neglect of life after insurgency by the Federal Government.

During a courtesy visit to the Abuja Bureau of The Guardian yesterday, the team, led by the Chief Executive Officer, Damilola Apotieri, said government was not showing commitment to build the affected regions in terms of psycho-social and mental health support.

He pledged that his organisation was willing to partner with agencies to impact positively the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the North East and other Nigerians who have survived conflicts, accidents, abuses and abductions.


With focus on children, Apotieri noted that the organisation had been able to provide mental support through drama and storytelling for over 10,000 kids in seven council areas within Maiduguri, Borno State.

In his remarks, the Abuja Bureau Chief of the media outfit, Igho Akeregha, regretted that art practitioners suffer because the country does not appreciate artwork.

He commended the team for its consistency amid paucity of funds.
