Ahead of the expected official visit by President Muhammadu Buhari to Borno State today, Thursday, the State governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, has urged residents to show appreciation to the President during his visit.
In his address to the residents yesterday, Zulum said the President will appraise the security situation in the North-East and commission some of the projects executed by the State government.
During the visit, President Buhari is expected to also inaugurate the first phase of 10,000 houses he approved and for the resettlement of Internally-Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugees.
The Federal Government has completed 4,000 out of the 10,000 houses sited in Kaleri, Dalori, and other locations.
Admitting that Borno still faces security challenges, Zulum stressed that the President has performed well in the State, and pointed out that until Buhari’s authorisation, Borno, since 1976, remained without a Federal Polytechnic, a Federal College of Education.
The Governor added that Buhari is concerned about the humanitarian situation in Borno and committed to finding peace.
