Borno: Zulum visits Malam-Fatori, commends Tinubu for tackling insurgency

Borno State governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, travelled on Sunday to Malam-Fatori, the headquarters of Abadam Local Government Council, in the northern part of Borno State.

During Sunday’s visit, Zulum commended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his prompt attention to the fight against the insurgency in the Northeast.

Zulum, while interacting with officers and men of the task force battalion in Malam-Fatori, gave assurance of providing the necessary support to complement the federal government’s efforts.

During the meeting, Zulum discussed the modalities for returning the people of Malam-Fatori to their community after they were displaced by flooding last year, following an initial resettlement by the Borno State Government.

“I have interacted with the officers here, and looking at the commitment and hard work of the commanding officer, I believe we can resettle the people back to this community,” Zulum said.

He added: “I am happy that a number of the people of Malam-Fatori, who reside in D

Bosso were able to cross over and cultivate their farmlands; this is a huge achievement.”

The governor also extended his gratitude to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, for his commitment to restoring peace in Borno State.

Zulum was accompanied by Bukar Talba, a House of Representatives member and Jamna Bong, the member representing Abadam at the Borno State House of Assembly.

The governor also had in his entourage two commissioners, Prof. Usman Tar (Information and Internal Security) and Sugun Mai Mele (Local Government and Emirates Affairs).
