2023: APC to restart oil exploration in Lake Chad, says Zulum

Governor Babagana Zulum has disclosed that his APC administration in Borno will collaborate with the federal government to resuscitate oil exploration in Lake Chad.

Mr Zulum stated this on Sunday in Maiduguri while inaugurating the 887-member APC Campaign Council, urging them to ensure a peaceful campaign.

He urged Borno residents and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to ensure they deliver their units to the party during the 2023 general elections.

The Borno governor added that the state had received special attention from the APC regime and stressed that Kashim Shettima, a Borno indigene, is the APC vice-presidential candidate.

Mr Zulum, who listed the successes recorded by his administration in various sectors, said that he would consolidate on the achievements and do more if re-elected in 2023.

He said that his administration would also partner the federal government to resuscitate oil exploration in Lake Chad and complete the Biu dam project.

“We will also revive Chad Basin Development Authority and all the irrigation projects in Borno,” Mr Zulum said.

The governor explained that his administration would prioritise female education as the backbone of society and employ 3,000 teachers and 1,500 health workers to ensure adequate teachers and health workers.

“We will build a nursing school in Gwoza and Monguno,” Mr Zulum said.

The governor, who condemned the violence recorded during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign in Maiduguri, called on the police to ensure a proper investigation of the incident.

He added that APC, the leading political party in Borno, could not have descended so low to attack PDP members, knowing that such action would only give them cheap popularity and sympathy.

Mr Zulum narrated how he approved Ramat Square for the PDP campaign and spoke with all relevant security agencies to provide security and ensure a hitch-free campaign.
