Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari starts one day official visit to Borno state, north-eastern Nigeria on Thursday.
The state governor, Babagana Zulum says the President visit is to “access the security situation and inaugurate some of the viable projects” executed by the federal and state governments during the visit.
Borno state is the base of Boko Haram fighters troubling the country for over 10 years.
In terms of insecurity, the state as suffered more casualties than the country as a whole.
“I once again, thank you for supporting our administration. I remain grateful to everyone, for your support, well wishes, prayers and above all, for being good citizens.
“In Sha Allah; our President, Muhammadu Buhari, will be coming to Borno State on Thursday, June 17, 2021.
“The president is coming to appraise the security situation in the northeast during which he will commission some developmental projects executed by the state government.
“The president will also commission the first phase of 10,000 houses which he generously approved and funded, for the resettlement of IDPs and refugees,” Zulum said.
Mr Zulum disclosed that construction work of over 4,000 of the 10,000 houses were completed at Kakeri, Dalori and other communities across the state.
The governor noted that the president “had demonstrated greater commitment to the security situation, and displayed deep compassion and love for the state”.
For many years, citizens suffered from the insecurity in Borno state at the hands Boko Haram insurgents.
This led to the reason why in 2015, majority cast their vote to President Buhari and still re-elect him in 2019 with up to 94% vote.
