Governor Babagana Umara Zulum of Borno State on Saturday unveiled a 25-year strategic plan with immediate, medium and long-term implementation phases, aimed at bringing full recovery to the state.

The plan was anchored on five critical pillars of human capital development, leadership in agriculture, healthy citizenry, sustainable environment and regional trade hub for commerce that will provide jobs and prosperity for citizens.

The development has the target of making Borno State world class after fully recovering from impacts of more than $6billion worth of destructions caused by Boko Haram for over the past 11 years.

While unveiling the plan in Maiduguri, Zulum said all activities of government would henceforth be executed according to the development plan.

The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed did the formal launch at an event hosted by Governor Zulum in Maiduguri. The event was attended by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami; former governors of Borno State, Kashim Shettima and Ali Modu Sheriff; serving and former National Assembly members; traditional rulers, led by the Shehu of Borno; representatives from the international community, members of the Borno State House of Assembly; party leaders and diverse stakeholders, some of who joined through the webinar.
