Zulum inaugurates FG’s 100 housing units in Gwoza
Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State on Wednesday inaugurated 100 housing units constructed by the Federal Government in Gwoza Local Government Area.
The project was constructed by the Federal Government under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) scheme.
Zulum, represented by the Deputy Govern0r, Usman Kadafur, at the ceremony lauded President Muhammadu Buhari’s vision toward ensuring that Nigerians in the low-income category had access to decent and affordable homes.
He pointed out that the housing projects would address the challenges of housing shortage and improve on the resettlement drive in the insurgency-ravaged communities of the state.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on SDGs, Adejoke Adefulire, said the project was designed to support the 25-year long term Borno State Development Framework (BoSDF).
This, she said, was aimed at laying a solid foundation and engendering steady, consistent and sustainable development in the state.
Adefuilire said that the houses were meant for the displaced people affected by the Boko Haram conflict.
“In 2030, 70 per cent of the people of Borno will be actively engaged in life activities, ranging from schooling and working and this is part of the effort to support such initiatives”, Adefulire said.
