Governor Babagana Umara Zulum of Borno State is concentrating more on infrastructural development, being a necessity in preparing the ground for easy resettlement of displaced persons in the state ;his Special Adviser (State Assembly Matters), Adamu Haruna told reporters in Kaduna at the weekend.
According to Haruna, the governor was building schools and hospitals to make the education and health facilities accessible by the displaced children and also make them affordable for the aparents and guardians as the case may be.
He noted that within his first two years in office as Borno State Governor, Prof. Zulum has been prudent in the management of available resources in the state , which has consequently led to the execution of over 570 capital projects spread across the state.
“For example, schools are built to accommodate children that are internally displaced. Houses are built to accommodate those displaced adults.
“So, there is no way those children can have a better future without bringing education and health facilities close to them; which was why Mr Governor is intentionally and aggressively doing these.
“He has been prudent with the resources at his disposal because he puts the interest of the people first.
“The governor has generated billions as internally generated revenue (IGR) in two years despite the security challenges the state is faced with.
“I think if the government of Borno State can generate billions as IGR, we can all imagine how aggressive he is in trying to get revenue to deliver his work which is commendable,” he added.
