Maiduguri-Bama Road: The completion of the road as envisaged yet to be sighted
The ongoing Maiduguri Bama road has been suspended for a reason known to Spectrum Engineering Company, Borno State Government and Federal Government, who embark on the road reconstruction in early 2021.
It could be recalled that Borno state governor Prof Babagana Umara Zulum, flagged off the reconstruction of Bama – Maiduguri 66Km road on Wednesday 4th February 2021 precisely but come to a sudden suspension.
The reconstruction work is awarded by Federal Government to Spectrum Engineering Company at the cost of 5 billion naira under the Multi-Sectoral Crisis Response Plan ( MCRP).
The road reconstruction is to be handled together with Borno Road Maintenance Agency (BORMA) and to be supervised by the Borno State Ministry of Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement with a specific project timeline of three years.

However, the project is suspended within Konduga township and from Konduga to Bama, the road is worsening daily particularly now that raining season sets in.
“We are worried but neither the Borno state government, Spectrum Engineering Company nor the federal government is saying anything about the suspension of work. There is a need for the authority concern to expedite action to complete the project.” A concerned citizen, who did not want his name on print told NEWSng in Maiduguri.
He also called on the Borno state governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum to pay a visit to the road to see how the road is continuing to deteriorate.
He said by the time the governor visit maybe he will speak to the federal government and the company to resume work so as to complete the project in time for travellers to once again enjoy their journeys to and from Bama town.
