Borno State Government has established six agencies to ensure efficient implementation of government’s projects, policies and programmes. While announcing the agencies and trust funds yesterday at the Musa Usman

Secretariat, Maiduguri, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Usman Shuwa, disclosed: “The newly established agencies include Borno State Geographic Information Service (BOGIS), Education Trust Fund, State’s Security Fund, Borno State Bureau of Public Procurement and Agency for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and Partnership.”

According to him, the completion of 326 projects and implementation of 46 programmes in a year are to improve living conditions of people in urban and rural centres of the state.

“The Procurement Act was passed by the National Assembly and domesticated by the House of Assembly,” he added. Warning that all government procurements must be through the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP), in line with Public Procurement Act, to curb corruption and wastage, he said overcoming structural and institutional inadequacies were to make civil service dynamic, in accordance with changing trends in governance.

On refugees and Internally-Displaced Persons (IDPs), he said: “We have concluded agreement with neighbouring countries of Niger, Chad and Cameroon to repatriate 250,000 Nigerian refugees for resettlement.

“Already, 2,000 refugees from Cameroon have arrived Banki, a border town with Cameroon. We’re discussing with the Nigerian Refugee Commission and Nigerian
Air Force (NAF) with a view to bringing other refugees in other neighbouring countries to the North East.”

SIMILARLY, the governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum, has constituted a 13-member State Boundary Committee.

According to him, members of the panel are to adjust the boundaries of five councils in the state. Shuwa disclosed at the weekend that the Deputy Governor, Alhaji Umar Kadafur had been chosen to head the boundary committee.

“The Ministerial Secretary of Inter-Governmental Affairs and Special Duties will also serve as secretary of committee,” he added. Other members of the committee include permanent secretaries from the ministries of Inter-Governmental Affairs and Special Duties, as well as Local Government and Emirate Affairs. He said the committee would be inaugurated in due course.

The Googled map of UNO State of Cameroon indicated that the committee might adjust the boundaries of five councils in Borno, including Bama, Ngala, Gwoza, Dikwa and Kala/Balge.

    Remember, for the first time in the history of this country when Chibuike Amaechi was governor, he shut down the courts for two years. Based on that experience, more threats and attacks are seen
