Others were different sizes of pampers, sanitary pads, toilet papers, exercise books, pens and pencils, crayons, and cash for the purchase of medical supplies.
Osinbajo turned 59 on March 8.
The presentation was made by the Chaplain of the Aso Villa Chapel, Pastor Seyi Malomo, on behalf of the Vice President.
According to Malomo the items are to express the Vice President’s solidarity with the IDPs and to explain that their condition outside their homes in the North East is not hopeless.
The cleric said that the Federal Government was intensifying efforts to return those displaced by Boko Haram insurgency to their homes.
He said that the Muhammadu Buhari administration was concerned about their plight and had destroyed the military strength of the Boko Haram terrorists
