The lawmaker representing Borno South in the Red Chamber, Senator Ali Ndume, has reported that Boko Haram insurgents have halted projects approved in the North-East by the Buhari government.
The lawmaker identified some of the projects affected when addressing newsmen in Maiduguri on Monday, January 4.
Ndume lamented that the effective implementation of the Federal Government’s road projects in the North East was hindered by insecurity.
The approved Dikwa-Marte-Monguno road for N60.273bn and the approved Numan road between Borno and Adamawa for N15.527bn.
The third is the Gombi-Biu road linking Adamawa and Borno, which has also been approved for N7,643 billion.
It has also embarked on the reconstruction and renovation of the dilapidated Biu-Azare-Shaffa-Garkida federal highway linking Adamawa’s Gombi Local Government Area, but because of the insurgents’ activities, the workers were forced to vacate the site.
Damaturu-Maiduguri was allocated, but the work has stopped, as you can see. Also, the road was also abandoned from Buni Yadi-Biu. Due to the danger posed by the terrorist, even passengers do not periodically move through the route.
