The Borno State Government has commissioned 11 boreholes constructed by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) programme to restore social infrastructure in Boko Haram destroyed communities.
Kanem Trust reports that the 11 completed solar-powered boreholes that spread across MMC, Jere and Konduga Local Government Areas, were on Tuesday handed over to the Ministry of Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (RRR).
“We are committed to improving the living conditions of people in North-East Nigeria through restoration of social infrastructure,” said the State Field Coordinator of the GIZ programme, Malam Mohammed Abba.
According to him, the programme was a support to strengthening resilience in the region, and it was jointly funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
“After signing an MoU with the Borno State Government last year, the GIZ embarked on construction of 11 boreholes and were completed in identified locations across the three local government areas, Abba told the Commissioner (Ministry of RRR) Engr. Mustapha Gubio, during the handover.
Speaking, Engr. Gubio, extolled the positive impacts of their collaboration with the GIZ programme, expressing gratitude to donor organisation.
He also urged community leaders in all beneficiary locations to maintain all already done projects and those that were still underway.
