=== (AGENDAWATCHDOG) === President Muhammadu Buhari is set to pay a visit to Borno State on Thursday, according to Governor Babagana Zulum.
Zulum, while announcing this on Tuesday evening at the Government House in the state capital, noted that the President, during his visit, would be assessing the security situation in the North-East, as well as inaugurate 4,000 houses, which are part of the Federal Government’s housing project, as well as some local projects executed by the state government.
“The President would commission the first phase of the 10,000 houses which he graciously approved and funded for the resettlement of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugees.”
While noting that the housing project in Borno is the largest Federal Government housing intervention sited in one state, Zulum highlighted other projects approved, which he attributed to the President’s compassion and concern for the humanitarian situation in the state.
President Buhari’s last visit to Maiduguri was in February 2020 where a viral video showed youths in front of the Ramat Polytechnic booing at his convoy as he made his way into the town from the airport, following his sympathy visit to the state over the attack on stranded travellers in Auno that left many dead.
