, etc. More than three million of them are estimated to be still in northern Sudan and yet to be repatriated, according to recorded registration exercise carried out by the Council of Chiefs of Southern Sudan states, Nuba Mountains and Southern Blue Nile who represent the IDPs and reside in 16 states across northern Sudan. According to the Acting Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Gier Chuang Aluong, the initial statistics served as an eye opener for GoSS to know how many of its citizens are still living as IDPs in northern Sudan. The chiefs were given the task by GoSS to locate, register and mobilize the IDPs to return to the South in collaboration with the SSRRC and other concerned non-governmental organizations. They also provide statistics for IDPs from Abyei, Nuba Mountains and Southern Blue Nile areas. SSRRC Chairperson, Simon Kun Puoch appealed for more funds to effectively carry out his Commission's mandate to repatriate the IDPs and refugees. The semi-autonomous Government renewed its appeal to its partners to continue to assist in this expensive repatriation exercise of the people, who they said are needed in the South to contribute in rebuilding the war-ravaged region.
