He is also expected to commission 13 primary and junior secondary schools, a general hospital, five primary healthcare centres as well as irrigation items, mobile fish ponds and economic animals for village women.
Commissioner for Local Government and Emirate Affairs and chairman of the committee on the commissioning said in a statement yesterday that Tinubu will be the first in the lineup of VIP’s invited by Governor Kashim Shettima on different dates starting from March to end in May, 2017, to commission series of projects executed by Shettima in the face of the Boko Haram insurgency.
Tinubu is expected to commission 26 luxurious apartments in five detached three story buildings located in Maiduguri to serve as residence of medical doctors working in government hospitals which Governor Shettima has named ‘Bola Tinubu Court’.
The commissioner said after Tinubu’s visit, former First Lady, Maryam Abacha, is expected to commission a 250-bed ultra modern hospital for women and children named after her. Located along Dikwa road in Maiduguri, the large hospital complex built by Governor Shettima is the first dedicated for women and children in Borno.
