The Borno State government said yesterday it was working on plans to re-open major highways linking Maiduguri to other parts of the state.

Governor Kashim Shettima stated this at an interactive forum with traders of the Monday Market in Maiduguri where he explained that the objective was to rejuvenate the economy of the state, which had suffered setbacks due to Boko Haram insurgency. He said the government had also constructed shopping malls in different parts of the state capital to encourage business activities.

Mr. Shettima expressed optimism that the lingering Boko Haram insurgency would soon be over, following successes recorded by the military in its campaign against terrorism. He commended the leadership of the traders for maintaining unity among them and assured them of government’s readiness to assist them to overcome the hardships they were facing due to the insurgency.

Also speaking, the permanent secretary of the state Ministry of Trade and Investment, Hamza Hamawa, said the forum was organised by traders to express appreciation to the governor for initiating an interest-free loan for them.
