President Muhammadu Buhari could not hide his joy in Maiduguri on Thursday, after commissioning seven out of 556 capital projects delivered by Borno Governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, in just two years in office.
He is highly impressed by the very dynamic leadership that Governor Babagana Umaru Zulum has been providing in Borno State in the last two years.
President Buhari says he has gone round to commission some of the capital projects executed by the Zulum Administration in two years. Adding that he is very happy with what he saw.
Some of the Projects commissioned by the President include Borno State University, senate building, constructed two large hostels with 150 rooms for 1,200 students; constructed 34 units of duplexes and bungalows for Professors, senior and intermediate staff; constructed seven kilometers of road and drainage network and undertook landscaping works across the University.
Major infrastructural works were earlier done by the Kashim Shettima administration, which established the university.
The President also commissioned two mega-size Government Day Technical Secondary Schools in Njimtilo and Goni Kachallari and a higher Islamic School, near the Shehu’s palace, all of which have 60 air-conditioned classrooms for at least 2,400 students; vocational workshops, laboratories for sciences and ICT, auditoriums and sporting facilities.
Zulum has built 16 of such schools across Borno.
Also commissioned were Abbaganaram Maternal Healthcare Centre, which has 50-bed spaces, theatres, diagnostic equipment, blood banks and laboratories. And another replicated in Gwange.
The President also commissioned roads and drainages.
