bama-townGovernor Kashim Shettima of Borno State has disclosed that he would temporarily relocate to Bama and Gwoza local government areas of the state, where life is gradually returning, to speed up the ongoing reconstruction works of communities destroyed by insurgents.

Bama and Gwoza were some of the territories captured by Boko Haram with the latter town declared an “Islamic Caliphate” by Abubakar Shekau, before Nigerian troops flushed the insurgents out and reclaimed the local government areas.

Gov. Shettima, who recently created the state Ministry of Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement, said he will not wait for any donation from international donor agencies or the federal government before embarking on rebuilding homes and communities destroyed by the insurgents across the state.

“For those that believe in this mission, a day or two after Sallah, I am relocating to Bama. I will move between Bama and Gwoza to see that we do not wait for eternity for support from international community, from the UN (United Nations), from the central government, we want to take charge of our destiny and rebuild our homes and communities, so that we can restore the dignity of our state”, he said.
