Governor Zulum’s administration aims to ensure that each of Borno’s 312 wards is provided with a primary healthcare centre in compliance with the standard of the World Health Organization (WHO).

More importantly, he noted the employment of hundreds of healthcare personnels already done by his administration to make healthcare centres functional. The Governor said all the numerous healthcare centres built in the central, southern and northern parts of the State, will be equipped with competent staff.

On Maiduguri-Bama road, Zulum said the State was in talks with Alhaji Aliko Dangote to support in extending the road from Bama to Banki by the time the project reaches Bama from Maiduguri. He noted that connecting Banki will enhance trans border trade and increase access to livelihood.

Zulum commended the quality of the commissioned projects executed by the State’s Ministry of Health and that of Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement.
