Maiduguri - The Borno Government says it plans to reconstruct 823 classrooms destroyed by Boko Haram, following the gradual return of peace in the state.
Gov. Kashim Shettima announced this in Maiduguri on Sunday.
Shettima said the plans was part of government's agenda of "reconstruction, rehabilitation and reintegration" to consolidate the return of peace after a prolonged Boko Haram crisis.
He said government would also overhaul the health care system.
The governor pointed out that government must tackle the problem of unemployment to provide a permanent solution to the Boko Haram crisis.
"We have to explore avenues of creating jobs for the youth if we want to live, but if we fail to address the problem now, the worst insurgency will happen in the near future."
He said government plans to invest heavily in the agricultural sector to provide jobs for the youth.
