  1. Dear health correspondent, i believe we should not treat our fellow citizens like animals. Since we cannot say particularly those who are responsible for pregnancies and over 3000 babies in the IDP Camps, please advise the federal government to ensure that Family Planning Services are embraced at the IDP Camps to prevent further complications of the present situations. Thanks
