Borno State Governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum, has assured that electricity would be restored in Maiduguri and its environs within 30 days.

The state capital has been plunged into darkness since insurgents destroyed electricity transmission towers along Maiduguri-Damaturu road 11 months ago.

While presenting the 2022 appropriation bill before the State Assembly, on Tuesday, the governor said efforts are being made to restore electricity.

“Insha Allah, we will ensure that we double our efforts to restore electricity back to Maiduguri and its environs within 30 days,” Zulum said.

“As you all know that the capital city has been without electricity for almost a year now. We will not relent, on our own part.”

The government has tried several times to fix electricity by supporting with the cost of repairs, but insurgents have sabotaged every effort.

The blackout has continued to affect residents, businesses as well as some government agencies whose works solely rely on power.

The University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital revealed it spent over N10 million monthly on generators.
