He pointed out that the housing projects would address the challenges of housing shortage and improve on the resettlement drive in the insurgency-ravaged communities of the state.

In her remarks, Mrs Adejoke Adefulire,
Senior Special Assistant to the President on SDGs, said the project was designed to support the 25-year long term Borno State Development Framework (BoSDF).

This, she said, was aimed at laying a solid foundation and engendering steady, consistent and sustainable development in the state.

Adefuilire said that the houses were meant for the displaced people affected by the Boko Haram conflict.

“In 2030, 70 per cent of the people of Borno will be actively engaged  in life activities, ranging from schooling and working and this is part of the effort to support such initiatives”,  Adefulire said. (NAN)
