Two University Professors were among the twenty seven (27) Local Government Chairmen sworn in, in Borno State on Wednesday, by the Governor, Babagana Zulum, he himself a Professor.

It was gathered that the two Professors are Adamu Alooma and Ibrahim Bukar. 

While Alooma, who is a Professor of Banking and Finance in University of Maiduguri, took oath as Chairman of Damboa Local Government Area, Bukar, a Professor of Education, also at the same University as Alooma, took oath as Chairman of Gwoza Local Government Area.

The Governor, Professor Zalum, while congratulating all the elected Chairmen, reminded them of the major task ahead of them which they could only do with the resources at their disposal.

He directed the Ministry  for Local Government and Emirates affairs to immediately release to the elected Chairmen, all funds allocated to the 27 local government councils from the federation’s account so they could begin to impact lives at the grassroots.

He appealed to the elected officials to discharge their duties with the fear of God, but without fear or favor.

He also charged all the elected officials to operate in their respective local government headquarters.

“Let me remind you that the era of operating from Maiduguri is over, as such I enjoin you to operate in the midst of your people.

“Any chairman who is not willing to serve his people and work in his local government headquarters will be shown the way out,” Mr Zulum said.

He noted that the objective of creating local government was to bring government closer to the people and hence the need for the elected councils to be physically present to generate confidence, raise hope and aspiration of the people.

He said the state was in “a critical stage’’ and had embarked on rehabilitation, reconstruction and resettlement.

The governor urged the chairmen to work closely with security agencies in their areas and attend monthly security meeting with the Secretary to the State Government, to be abreast of security developments.

He urged them to also work in harmony with their councilors, saying that there was no time for bickering.
