    Warehouse Program Manager

     

    Job ID: #1743871

    Humanitarian situation and needs
    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as the first economy in Africa thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge socio-economic inequalities, and from high rates of corruption, at every level. In 2015, presidential elections were held and led to the election of Muhammad Buhari (former military) to replace Goodluck Jonathan. During the first months of his election, he has shown particular efforts to get progressively rid of corruption, and has officially announced that he would stop Boko Haram from harming people.

    Boko Haram (meaning Western education is forbidden/ is a sin), renamed Islamic State in Western Africa after it pledged allegiance to the group Islamic State in april 2015, is a Sunni terrorist and jihadist group seeking to create a Kalifate in western Africa ruled by the sharia law. Created in 2002 by Mohamed Yusuf in Maiduguri (State of Borno), the group has been carrying out armed attacks on civilian populations since 2011. Abubakar Shekau has taken over the leadership of the group after Yusuf died in detention in 2009 and has radicalizeds BH’s actions in the Lake Chad Basin.

    From 2013, Boko Haram exported its action abroad, in Cameroon, Chad and Niger and was linked to a number of attacks kidnapping, particularly in Northern Cameroon. The intensification of conflict in north east states of, Borno, Adamawa and Yobe has inevitably resulted in the displacement of people across the troubled states. As of today, OCHA estimated that 7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, of whom 1.8 million are displaced in the sole city of Maiduguri. The main need is related to Food Security, and access to basic services (Water, Health, and Sanitation).

    If a regional force made up of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon launched a military offensive against Boko Haram in early 2015 and resulted in significant territorial losses for the insurgent group.

    In August 2016, Al-Barnawi was appointed as the new leader by the high commandment of ISIS for the western African province of the Islamic State, which caused a scission inside the group between ISWA (Islamic State in Western Africa) led by Al-Barnawi and Boko Haram “historical channel” led by Abubakar Shekau. This scission might cause changes in the security context in the coming months. Armed clashes are still ongoing in Borno state drastically reducing access to the vulnerable populations outside Maiduguri, in Local Government Areas of Borno State.
