Speaking during the event, Borno State Commissioner for Education, Engr. Lawan Abba Wakilbe, highlighted that in the last three years, Zulum administration had recruited about 1,000 teachers who were trained and posted to schools.
The commissioner also said that accommodation for teachers were constructed in Maiduguri, Banki and Mafa towns.
Wakilbe recalled that Zulum has so far built 24 mega-size schools and rehabilitated over 600 classrooms within 100 schools across the state.
He noted that 458 WASH facilities were also constructed across 350 primary and post-primary institutions in the state.
Also during the visit to Biu, Governor Zulum also announced his approval for the construction of 200 housing units in Miringa village in Biu Local Government Area.
