Borno: Luxury Projects Inspected By Governor Zulum

Governor Babagana Umara Zulum visited Maiduguri and the surrounding Jere Local Government Area yesterday to examine five multibillion-naira capital projects.

The five projects included a new trailer park, a flyover at the customs roundabout, dual carriageway from custom to Muna, Kwanan Yobe road and drainage network, and the Maiduguri-Bama highway.

Zulum began his evaluation with the new Maiduguri trailer park, approving the release of more monies to expedite the project's completion.

The governor next went to the customs flyover project, which connects three routes, including one that connects Maiduguri to the Dikwa-Ngala economic corridor, which leads to Cameroon and Chad.

The 2.4-kilometer flyover has two opposing lanes at the top and bottom of the bridge.

The flyover, according to Governor Zulum, is meant to relieve traffic congestion at Maiduguri's regularly busy Customs roundabout.

The governor also stated that he is opening up the state capital in response to increased vehicular movements on the highways as a result of population growth, which is mostly fueled by forced migration of families who have settled in Maiduguri as a result of insurgent displacement.
