Zulum at Buratai: Opens new school, approves 20 more teachers

… ‘We employed 1,000 teachers, built 24 mega schools, rehabilitated 600 classrooms’ 

… Governor orders 200 houses for Miringa 

Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana Zulum, was yesterday (Tuesday) at Buratai village in Biu Local Government Area where he commissioned a newly built mega school with capacity for 1,500 students. 

Zulum also directed the recruitment of an additional 20 teachers to be selected from the host community for deployment to the Government Secondary School.

The governor explained that the immediate recruitment will be on ad-hoc basis but teachers who prove their capacity and commitment will be given permanent employment and fully integrated into the state civil service.

‘Zulum employed 1,000 teachers, built 24 mega-size schools, rehabilitated 600 classrooms’ 

In his welcome address, Borno State’s Commissioner for Education, Engr. Lawan Abba Wakilbe, highlighted that in the last three years, Zulum administration was able to recruit 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.

Meanwhile, Governor Babagana Umara Zulum yesterday announced his approval for the construction of 200 housing units in Miringa. 

Like Buratai, Miringa is also a village in Biu Local Government Area. 

Zulum noted that the 200 houses will reduce housing deficit, particularly now that internally displaced persons were safely returning to their communities.
