Zulum, who operates two offices at the Government House and the State’s Secretariat noted that he will be using the community outreach office from time to time.
Auno, a small town in Konduga local government area of Borno state had been repeatedly attacked by Boko Haram insurgents.
As a result of the series of attacks on the town, many of its residents have continually fled into Maiduguri the state capital.
He said: "The new outreach at Auno will not be an office, it will be a place he will also be operating, for the purpose of having direct interactions with the residents at Auno, and nearby communities in Konduga and Kaga local government areas.
We have to take measures to secure Auno like we should do for all parts of the state. I am establishing a community outreach that will be used by me and I will be regular here.”
