Governor Babagana Umara Zulum of Borno state has on Friday handed over 81 units of three-bedroom apartments along with cheques worth a total of N79 million to 81 resident medical doctors.

Each of the doctors was given a tastefully built flat at a quarter specifically built for doctors in 13 blocks of two-storey buildings with each block having six flats.

The quarters was fully fenced, landscaped, flowered, and provided with sporting facilities and a playground.

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 N1 million as furniture support to 79 doctors who were allocated the 79 unfurnished flats.

One of the beneficiaries of the 81 flats, Dr Bulama Gaidam, is currently in 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 the keys to one of the two fully furnished flats of the wife of the abducted doctor.

Zulum consoled her and strengthened her hope to reunite with her husband.

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

He however urged the doctors to form a residents’ association through which they can make contributions to find ways of sustaining facilities at the estate and enhancing their communal safety.
