The Borno state government has called on the federal government to deploy the use of technology in protecting critical national assets.

The Governor of Borno Babagana Umara Zulum made this call during a special town hall meeting to address vandalisation of Power and Telecommunications Infrastructure held in Maiduguri.

Governor Babagana Zulum described the choice of Maiduguri for the townhall meeting as timely as most part of Borno state have been plunged into darkness for about nine months due to activities of Boko Haram.

He said the insurgents brazenly destroyed electricity towers along Maiduguri-Damaturu road, thereby subjecting people of the state into untold hardship, particularly those who depend on electricity for their livelihood.

According to Professor Zulum, the state government had at different times mobilised resources to support the federal government in fixing the destroyed towers but to no avail.

Governor Babagana Zulum expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for approving the establishment of thermal and solar energy plants as alternative sources of energy to the state.
