The Governor of Borno State, Babagana Umara Zulum on Sunday Evening assessed five capital multi-billion naira projects in Maiduguri and Jere Local Government Area of the state.
The five projects include: new trailer park, flyover at the customs roundabout, a dual carriage way from custom to Muna, Kwanan Yobe road and drainage network, and Maiduguri-Bama highway.

The Governor moved to the Customs flyover project which connects three routes that include connecting Maiduguri to Dikwa-Ngala economic road that leads to neighbouring countries of Cameroon and Chad.
The flyover is 2.4 kilometres long with two opposite lanes on top of the bridge and at the bottom.
