Borno Government Carries Out Detailed Feasibility Study Of Flood Prone Communities
In an effort to bring lasting solution to the perennial floods in some communities of MMC and Jere, Governor Zulum visits Giwa Barack and Jiddari Polo.
The Governor who was taken round by the Commissioner of the ministry of Environment, Engr. Kabir Mohammed Wanori went round to see all the prone areas.
Governor Zulum while addressing the community leaders of the two places he visited assured that Borno State Government would provide lasting solution to all the affecting communities.
However, Governor Zulum directed the ministry of Environment to liaise with the Centere for Disaster Risk Management, University of Maiduguri to carryout a detailed feasibility study of MMC and Jere in order to forestall future occurrence.
In addition, the Governor directed the department of land and survey, Governor’s office to come up with the detailed plan of the entire metropolitan and Jere local government area.
Governor Zulum later proceeds to the Ramat Polytechnic water facility; he also directed the Commissioner of Water Resources to immediately forward a proposal of the restoration of the facility to his office for approval.
The facility with pumping capacity of 5million liters of water per day serves Bolori, Wulari, Police Barack, Moduganari, parts of Bulumkutu and all institutions around Ramat Polytechnic. It was established in 1974.
The Governor was, however, not happy for seeing a new generator at the premises of the facility left roasting.
He, therefore, warned, that his administration would not tolerate the lackadaisical attitude by civil servants where public properties are avoidably allowed to roast. Such civil servants shall be dealt with accordingly he said.
