The people of Marama Community in Borno state celebrates Cultural Day, they had long put on hold for many years since the Boko Haram terrorists began to destroy communities.
However, with the gradual return of peace and stability to the communities in Borno the people of Marama summoned courage and strongly rolled out the drums in celebration of their rich cultural heritage on the New Year day.
Governor Babagana Zulum, represented by his deputy Umar Usman Kadafur at cultural festival, dispatched the 2022 Bura Cultural Day organised by Marama Community Development Association, MCDA, at the Government Secondary School Marama Play Ground in Hawul Local Government Area.
The governor pleaded with traditional rulers to continue to protect cultural artefacts and the rich heritage of the people for the future growth and development of the state and its people.
Prof Zulum assured that the state government was serious and committed to revamping the culture and tradition of the diverse ethnic groups in the state.
The governor, however, pleaded with the natives to spare no effort in sending their wards to school as education remains the bedrock of any meaningful development in any society and also assured the people in the area of more projects before the end of his administration.
