VP Shettima Commissions Zulum’s Mega Schools, Other Projects in Borno

Vice-President Kashim Shettima commissioned three new schools and a primary healthcare centre executed by Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, within 100 days of his on-going second term.

The VP, who arrived in Maiduguri on Friday, was received at the Muhammadu Buhari airport by Governor Zulum, APC leaders, and top government officials.

Senator Shettima began his commissioning at Shuwari II Mega Primary School, which has 20 classrooms with a capacity for at least 1,200 pupils.

The school also has staff quarters and sports facilities.

Also at Shuwari II, the Vice-President commissioned a 30-bed community Primary Healthcare centre, which was built to address the increasing healthcare needs due to the influx of internally displaced persons to Maiduguri Metropolis and its environs.

The Vice-President then paid homage to the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Dr. Abubakar Ibn Umar Garbai Al-Amin Elkanemi.

From Shehu’s palace, the Vice-President went to commission Government Day Secondary School, Gamboru, named after the late Borno SSG, Usman Jidda Shuwa.

The school has 30 classrooms, sports facilities, and laboratories, among other facilities.

Shettima then went to unveil another mega school in the Alakaramti community.

The school has 30 classrooms, an administrative block, sporting facilities, electricity, and water systems.

At the commissioning sites, uniforms, writing materials, and textbooks were distributed to students by the Vice-President.
