The administration of Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum has so far connected 17 towns to the National grid in Southern Borno senatorial district.
Towns and villages which benefitted from the project were: Bidam, Damaturu, Borkulak, Kulara, Lakundum, Gundiri, and Bargu in Shani local government area.
Others include, Kukurupu, Kwakshar, Pelathabu, Yaragi, Nduraku, Sakwa Bura, Ngasam and Gula in Hawul local government area, as well as Jaragol in Bayo local government area.
Many have described the strides of Governor Zulum unprecedented in his developmental efforts and drive to give the people of the state dividends of democracy, particularly rural dwellers. It is believed that this outstanding and laudable step will contribute to reduce the rural urban migration.
