Gov Zulum approves shopping malls, abattoir for cattle market
Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno has approved additional shopping malls, animal stands and abattoir for the International Cattle Market in border town of Gamboru.
Zulum gave the directive while inspecting ongoing projects at the market during his one-day visit to Gamboru/Ngala Local Government Area.
The governor also directed the construction of additional departments and the recruitment of tutors for the Vocational Training Center in the town.
The governor, who interacted with teachers during the visit, also approved the construction of housing estate for teachers.
Zulum said the projects at the border area would not only give the people a sense of belonging but also enhance trans-border trade with neighbouring countries of Chad and Cameroon.
“I am here to assess facilities that are being constructed by the Borno State Government, most especially those that will put in place the civil authorities and enhance trans-border trade,” Zulum said.
Other projects inspected by the governor during the visit included Police station, Central Primary School, Higher Islamic College, Customs and Immigration offices and barracks.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the governor during the one day visit opened the Gamboru Central Mosque where he observed Jumma’at prayer.
Those who accompanied the governor on the visit included the Special Adviser on Special Projects, Mr Ibrahim Idriss; Borno Coordinator of of World Bank’s Multi Crises Recovery Project (MCRP), Babazanna AbdulKarim; and the Technical Specialist at MCRP, Ali Umar Bashir.
Others are the General Manager, Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency (RUWASA), Mr Mohammed Musa, and the Director General of the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Dr Mohammed Barkindo.
