In October, 2016, Kashim Shettima, the governor of
Borno state, announced plans to rebuild churches
and buildings, destroyed by Boko Haram
Visiting areas affected in these attacks, he pledged
to restore these buildings before the end of this
“I want to assure that the churches will be rebuilt
before December, so that the people can celebrate
the Christmas in a more conducive atmosphere.”
“We will also make sure that all private houses
destroyed are rebuild without delay.
We are not doing this for political reasons because
we are not facing any election now. Our actions
are based on the desire to serve people and to
ensure equity among them”, he added.
Now, multiple sources have reported that the
governor has kept his word, as work has begun on
in these areas.
Pictures taken on November 29, 2016, prove that a
church in Askira Uba is being reconstructed.
Kudos to Shettima and the state government for
fulfilling their promise.
