Zulum launches construction of 11 roads in Jere, Borno State
The flag-off ceremony was attended by the Deputy Governor, Umar Usman Kadafur, Senator, Borno Central, Kaka Shehu Lawan, House of Reps member for MMC, Abdulkadir Rahis, APC’s Deputy National Chairman (North), Ali Bukar Dalori, Secretary to the State Government, Hon Bukar Tijjani and other top government officials.
The 11 roads cover a total of 5.125km with 10.248 km and about 1.22km outfall.
“In fulfilment of our electioneering campaign promise, we are here to flag off the construction of 11 township road projects totalling about 5.12km road with 10.248km drainage network in Simari covering both Jere and Mafa Local Government Areas,” Zulum said.
Zulum also noted that Simari is a community flooded by rainwater, largely due to lack of access roads and drainage with thousands facing difficulties in accessing their places of work and public facilities like health.
State Commissioner of Works and Housing, Engr Mustapha Gubio, said the project was expected to be completed in one year.
