Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State on Friday handed over 81 units of three-bedroom apartments along with cheques worth a total of N79m to 81 resident medical doctors.

The apartments were built in quarters fully fenced, landscaped, flowered, and provided with sporting facilities and playground.

According to the state government, the 13 blocks at the quarters have a combined number of 78 flats, while another storey building sited at Muhammadu Shuwa memorial hospital has three additional flats, making 81 flats.

Two out of the 81 flats were fully furnished, while 79 were yet to be furnished.
Zulum presented cheques worth N1m as furniture support to 79 doctors who were allocated the 79 unfurnished flats.

One of the beneficiaries of the 81 flats was Dr Bulama Gaidam, currently under the captivity of the ISWAP terror group.

Gaidam was abducted on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, in Gubio, where he was serving as Principal Medical Officer of the General Hospital.

Governor Zulum handed over keys of one of the two fully furnished flats.

Speaking to the wife of the abducted doctor, Zulum consoled her and strengthened her hope to one day reunite with her husband.

The Governor assured all the 81 doctors who benefitted that Government will make some efforts to support them in powering a standby generator installed for the quarters.
