The Borno State Government has earmarked N1.3 billion to remodel and revitalise the biggest cattle market in the northeast region.
Kasuwa Shanu as fondly called used to be the biggest and busiest cattle market due to its proximity to sub-Saharan Africa before the advent of the Boko Haram crisis.
The market was severely hit due to the activities of the Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast.
Speaking, the General Manager, Borno State Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency (RUWASSA), Engr. Musa Ali told Daily Trust in Maiduguri yesterday that the government aimed at providing jobs opportunity for teeming youths by reviving the 50-year-old market to enhance the economy of the state.
