The Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama has charged the country representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, to hit the ground running. 
 
He gave the charge on Monday in Abuja when the UNHCR country representative Antonio Jose Canhandula presented his letter of commission to the minister. 
 
Mr. Canhandula begins work in Nigeria at a time when over eight million people in the Northeast are in dire need of humanitarian assistance.
