FG to declare 2 sites national monuments in Borno

12 November 2013, 13:32

Maiduguri - The federal government plans to declare two sites in Borno as national monuments as part of Nigeria's centenary celebrations in 2014.

The coordinator of the National Museum in Borno, Aisha Jidda, said this on Tuesday during a courtesy visit by Governor Kashim Shettima in Maiduguri.

The Shuhe Tomb in Kukawa, Kukawa Local Government Area and the Shehu Mohammed El Kanemi Prayer House in Ngala, Gamboru Ngala Local Government Area of the state will be declared national monuments, Jidda said.

“It may interest you to note that since 1959 when the Rabeh's forte was declared a national monument in the state, no other site has been declared.”

“Two important sites will be declared as national monuments to complement the 100 years of amalgamation of Nigeria in 2014,'' she said.

Jidda said the sites' monument status would boost the potential for tourism in the state.
