The Borno state capital has been plunged into darkness since insurgents destroyed electricity transmission towers along Maiduguri-Damaturu road 11 months ago.
While presenting the 2022 appropriation bill before the State Assembly, the governor said efforts are being made to restore electricity.
The governor assured that they will double their efforts to restore electricity back to Maiduguri and its environs within 30 days.
The government has tried several times to fix electricity by supporting with the cost of repairs, but insurgents have sabotaged every effort.
The blackout has continued to affect residents, businesses as well as some government agencies whose works solely rely on power.
The University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital revealed it spent over N10 million monthly on power generators.
