Boko Haram: After 9-year closure, Bama-Banki road reopened by Gov. Babagana Zulum of Borno

“This year, areas under cultivation in Borno have increased by 600 per cent. By next year, we will go beyond what we achieved this year,” Mr Zulum said.

Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno has formally reopened the 76-kilometre Bama-Banki road to restore business activities between Nigeria and the neighbouring countries of Cameroon and Chad.

The road was closed in 2012, due to activities of the Boko Haram insurgents.

Speaking at the ceremony on Wednesday in Bama, Mr Zulum said that no meaningful development could be achieved in the recovered areas without restoration of business activities.

He lauded the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration for its commitment to the restoration of peace in Borno.

The governor noted that the efforts put up by the military in the state had led to the expansion of farming activities this year in the hitherto no-go areas.

“This year, areas under cultivation in Borno have increased by 600 per cent. By next year, we will go beyond what we achieved this year,” Mr Zulum said.

In his address of welcome, the Chairman of Bama Local Government Council, Aji-Kolo Kachalla, lauded the development, describing it as a big relief to the people of the area known for business activities.

Also speaking, the Joint Task Force Commander, “Operation Hadin Kai”, Major-General Christopher Musa, said that the development was another victory in the quest by the military to ensure peace and normalcy in the state and other parts of the North-East zone.

Mr Musa commended the government and people of Borno for their cooperation and support to the military and other security agencies.

He assured of the commitment of the military to continuing to deliver on its mandate.
