Zulum inspects 1,000 houses in Logumani, Gajibo




Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, on Thursday, inspected 1000 housing projects at Logumani and Gajibo communities of Ngala and Dikwa Local Government Areas, respectively. 

Both communities were destroyed by Boko Haram insurgents and residents were displaced since 2014.

At Logumani where 500 houses are being constructed, Zulum expressed confidence that the ongoing work will be completed and people will be resettled in two months.

“We have seen the level of construction here and I have given a deadline of two months within which they should complete the work and we will return people back to their homes, insha’Allah”, Zulum said.

The governor noted that the construction comprises basic amenities such as a primary school, health centre, police station and deep aquifer borehole meant for the provision of water to the community.

At Gajibo, another community in Dikwa Local Government Area where the construction of another 500 houses is ongoing, Zulum ordered that the project should be completed in 3 months to allow residents to return home.

Zulum was also at the Shehu of Dikwa’s palace to pay homage.

The governor emphasized the need to ensure food security through irrigation farming.

Governor Zulum noted that through farming, Borno State Government intends to provide a viable solution to the problems of livelihood among IDPs that are returning to their ancestral communities.

The governor assured that government would provide farmers with modern irrigation implements and tools to enhance crop yield.
