The #OurBornoOurSuccess blueprint is designed along the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs. The Goal 2 shared by the Governor says “Sustaining the environment is crucial for this and future generations”.
The development plan focuses on eight pillars, including human capital development, social reorientation, agriculture and maintaining a healthy citizenry. MediaDimensions gathered that Governor Zulum requested for the 25-year development plan to rebuild Borno state as it recovers from insurgency.
An aide of the Governor, Dr. Mairo Mandara says “I can tell you that Borno is the only state in Nigeria that has a 25-year development plan and a 10-year implementation plan. We are looking at how to rebuild Borno within the SDGs and the African Union 2030 plan among others”.
Below is the full text of the tweets by Governor Zulum:
“Borno’s 25 year Development Plan, 10 years of strategic transformation launch, coming up on Saturday 14th November 2020.
*Sustaining the environment is crucial for this and future generations.
“Sustainable Borno for a better today and brighter tommorow.” #OurBornoOurSuccess
“A greater part of the state lies on the Chad Formation. Physio graphically, Borno could be divided into two broad relief regions, namely, the hilly/mountainous area of generally over 600m above sea level; and the plains of less than 600 metres above sea level. #OurBornoOurSuccess”
“The Highlands dominate the south and south eastern parts of the state, covering about one-third of the total land area of Borno. The remaining two-thirds of the land area is dominated by plains of generally less than 6oom above sea level.
“The State is experiencing desertification and a shrinking Lake Chad; a cumulative impact from deforestation, climate change, drought and inappropriate use of land. This is a challenge that needs urgent attention.
