Abstract 

A Research was conducted in North Eastern Nigeria to analyse the NGOs and Humanitarian 

situation in the region with emphasis on Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States. Simple random 

sampling was adopted to analyse selected NGOs. 15 NGOs were selected at random from the study 

area. Data were analyse for this study with descriptive statistical tools using frequency count and 

percentages on answering research questions. The study revealed that the most of the NGOs are 

international Organisations (73%) and intervening in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States. This is 

because Nigeria as a developing nation lacks the financial capacity to solve the humanitarian 

needs of the people affected by the crises in the north east without International Organisations’ 

intervention. The sector with majority of actors is Protection (60%) while the telecommunication 

sector remain a gap as only one agency is responsible to it. (7%). The frequency and the 

percentage exceeded normal. This because there is a serious duplications of assistance by the 

agencies. The humanitarian situation in the North East is also getting better because as of April, 

the United Nations and humanitarian partners reached 1,600,000 people with humanitarian 

assistance. Despite the skepticism, NGOs have made lives better in the North East especially in 

Borno Adamawa and Yobe states by alleviating suffering and quick response to cases as a result 

of the crises. The Humanitarian situations are getting better as more international and national 

NGOs are intervening in various aspects. Provided the efforts by the NGOs, there are still gaps in 

some sectors such as emergency telecommunications, Camp Coordination and Camp management 

and Sanitation especially environmental sanitation because of high cases of open defecations in a most of the LGAs
