The Federal Government has announced that it will formally re-open two major roads in Borno State today, Sunday, December 25, 2016, “following the total defeat of Boko Haram in the North-East by the Nigerian military.”

It named them as the Maiduguri-Gubio-Damasak road and the Maiduguri-Mungono-Baga road.

“The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and his counterpart in the Ministry of Defence, Brig.-General Mansir Dan-Ali (Rtd), Service Chiefs, Governor Kashim Shetimma of Borno State and other dignitaries will grace the occasion,” Segun Adeyemi,

Special Assistant to the Minister of Information and Culture, said.

He said this morning in a statement that “the dignitaries will later have lunch with the gallant troops who crushed the insurgency.”

Adeyemi added that “the two major roads, which were earlier closed due to the activities of the insurgents in the area, are of strategic importance to the economy of the Lake Chad Region.”
