Authorities in Maiduguri have approved N352 million for the operations of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) and hunters, in the fight against insurgency in the state, the state information commissioner, Babakura Abba-Jato said on Thursday.
Mr. Abba-Jato noted that the approval was given at the first state executive council meeting of 2021, presided over by governor Babagana Zulum.
The Northeastern state has been under Boko Haram siege for over a decade, with the country’s security failing to contain their continual onslaught.
The governor has at times accused the military of shirking in their responsibilities to protect citizens. He once aired in confidence in local militias and hunters to better combat the insurgents if given the needed support.
Other approvals also given at the meeting, according to the commissioner, included the rehabilitation of Maiduguri – Damboa road at the cost of N658m and the extension of an ongoing Benisheikh township road project at the cost of N231 million.
He said the sum of N237 was approved for the construction of Ramat – Wulari road and drainage in Maiduguri metropolis.
The commissioner said that the council also approved N1.6 billion for the construction of the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Borno State University Teaching Hospital.
Construction of 33 classrooms of two-storey mega school building in Buratai village, Biu Local Government, was also approved for the sum of N253 million, while the sum of N84 million was approved for the purchase laboratory equipment and reagents for technical college, Njimtilo, the commissioner said.
