Insecurity: President Buhari to visit Borno

President Muhammadu Buhari will pay a one-day working visit to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, on Thursday, (17/6/21) to assess the security situation in the beleaguered state and the northeast geopolitical zone generally.

The Presidency says the visit will accord him the opportunity to do a first-hand and on-the-spot assessment of how successful the efforts of his administration to restore peace and stability to the state and the region have been.

During the visit, President Buhari will address troops and visit wounded soldiers recuperating in a health facility in Maiduguri.

The visit, according to Government House sources in Maiduguri, will also enable the President to commission a number of infrastructural projects completed by the Babagana Zulum administration.

Projects expected to be commissioned by the President include educational and health facilities, and housing estates.

Borno State has been under Boko Haram attacks since 2009, leading to the occupation of 18 local government areas in the state, and 3 in Yobe State.

The current administration has, however, liberated all the occupied territories, and has geared up efforts to completely uproot the insurgents to restore normalcy in the northeast region.
