By Madu Mohammed Maiduguri
A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Borno state, Hon Yusuf Adamu has commenced the vision and initiatives of Governor Babagana Zulum for kicking up and unveiling a 25 year Development Plan (DP) and 10 years Strategic Transformation Plan (STP) as part of post insurgency recovery process from over decade of insurgency.
Speaking to newsmen in an interview,, yesterday in Maiduguri Alhaji Yusuf Adamu said the initiative of Governor Zulum is a manifestation of good governance, love and passion Zulum’s APC- led administration has for the people of Borno state.
Adamu who was State Secretary of the the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) stated that government which is a continuous process, the Development Plan has come to stay, as anyone who may succeed Zulum after his tenure should continue from where he stopped in repositioning Borno to a greater height.
“The formal launch of the 25 years Development Plan (DP) and 10 year Strategic Transformation Plan (STP) by governor Professor Babagana Umara Zulum is not only timely, but a manifestation of good governance.
“Likewise, the scheme and the policy to relocate all IDPs back to their ancestral homes on or before May 2021 is a welcome development, in addition to restore the old-age honour, dignity and prosperity of our people”, Adamu stressed.
He further said “I am particularly impressed with the five drivers of the strategic Pillars which were anchored on Human Capital Development, Leadership in Agriculture, Healthy Citizenry, Sustainable Environment and Regional Trade Hub, with four enabling strategic pillars which are: Reconstruct, Rehabilitate and Resettle, Purposeful Infrastructure, Accountable Governance, Peace and Security. “
While appreciating the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari, the gallantry and sacrifices of the military, other security agencies and members of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) for the fight against Boko Haram which has led to the relative peace in the state and the north East in general, said the plan when implemented will not take Borno to it’s past glory but make it line of the developed state in the country.
Going down a memory lane, the APC Chieftain recalled that South Korea was once declared the second poorest in the World due to its civil war, but because of good vision and support from all stakeholders, South Korea came up victorious and now one of the leading producers of Electronics in the whole world.
He therefore called on all stakeholders irrespective of political or religious differences to key into Zulum’s policies and programmes for the betterment of the state
It could’ be recalled that Zulum on Saturday in Maiduguri unveiled the development plan which was launched by Hon. Minister of Finance, Dr Zainab Shamsuna, ably represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Alhaji Aliyu Shinkafi, with Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Hon Isa Pantami in attendance among others international and national dignitaries graced the occasion.
