Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno state has been commended by President Muhammadu Buhari for the kind of projects executed by his administration in the last eight years.
Buhari who commended the governor on Thursday, April 25, said he was impressed by Shettima's choice of projects in educational, industrial, health, agricultural and road projects for his people
Legit.ng gathers that the president who commissioned the project, said: “I am pleased to be in Borno state on a state visit. I sincerely appreciate the good people of Borno state and as well commend your loyalty and support at all times.
“Since my arrival in Borno state, I have commissioned different projects. I am highly impressed by governor Kashim Shettima’s unique approach towards establishment of educational centers particularly at the primary level.
“As demonstrated by Governor Shettima, it is essential to give priority attention to primary school education in order to ensure formidable education at the tertiary level in line with international best practices.
“Borno state focusing on education is very imperative due to the peculiar security challenges posed by Boko Haram terrorists whose ideology is against girl child education. The terrorists in their crusades of malice against girl child education abducted Chibok Schoolgirls in Borno and Dapchi Schoolgirls in Yobe state. And unfortunately, some of the girls are still in captive.
“We won’t give up on them. As I have always said, as a Nigerian, as president, I assure all that we will do the needful to ensure that all Nigerians whose loved ones are in the hands of the Boko Haram terrorists regain their freedom.”
The projects commissioned by the president during his visit to Maiduguri included 8 landmark primary schools, an industrial park that has 16 plants, a diagnostic centre, the Borno State University and roads in Bolori, amongst others.
