Resettlement: Zulum Visits Malam-Fatori, Meets 68 Battalion, Approves 10 Patrol Vehicles

… Addresses water issues soldiers face

NEWSDAILYNIGERIA– Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum on Friday visited to Malam-Fatori, headquarters of Abadam Local Government Area, located in the fringes of Lake Chad in northern Borno.

The visit aimed to start preparing the liberated Boko Haram stronghold for reconstruction and safe return of refugees, who since 2014, fled the town to Boss and Diffa in Niger Republic.

Zulum approved 10 patrol vehicles to enhance security surveillance and held interactive meeting with the commanding officer of the 68 battalion in Malam-Fatori, to identity areas of Borno Government could offer support.

The Governor directed the State Rural Water Supply Agency to drill deep aquifer borehole within the military barracks, to address problems of access to water supply faced by the soldiers.

Speaking to troops, Zulum commanded their commitment and encouraged them to be steadfast in their efforts to clear remnants of the insurgents hibernating around Malam- Fatori.

The Governor later assessed infrastructure destroyed by insurgents in the town, which were to be reconstructed before December.

Zulum moved to Malam-Fatori from Diffa where he had been on Thursday, during which he held a high level collaborative meeting with President Bazoum Mohammed of Niger Republic, over safe and voluntary evacuation of Nigerian refugees.

Zulum announced that a relocation committee would be constituted next week, to oversee reconstruction works and come up with a relocation plan.

Zulum was in Mallam Fatori alongside the Senator representing northern Borno, Abubakar Kyari, members of state and national assembly and other stakeholders from Abadam Local Government Area.
