“this administration will continue to support girl child education, support women doctors, nurses and women teachers. What we want to do is invest heavily to enable them stand on their own ” Zulum said.

The Governor emphasized that the next three years of his administration will focus more on girl child education.

First Lady of Borno state, Dr Falmata Babagana Zulum noted that the best way to improve women inclusion is through forming women economic clusters, involving women and girls in sustainable agriculture.

Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajiya Zuwaira Gambo said the ministry has carried out several projects and activities geared towards improving the welfare and livelihood particularly to victims of Boko Haram insurgency and gender based violence.

Items presented to each beneficiary include 25 kilogram bag of rice, cartoon of Marcaroni and gallon of cooking oil in addition to the cash assistance.
