Alhaji Mohammed Indimi, a Maiduguri based billionaire, and In-law to President Muhammadu Buhari has described Governor Kashim Shettima’s records of achievements in Borno as unbelievable, saying it surprises him, how the Governor has changed the faces of Maiduguri and other parts of the State despite meagre resources and management of the Boko Haram insurgency.
Indimi, whose son recently married Zahra, President Buhari’s most popular daughter, gave his verdict while receiving Governor Shettima at his expanse residence in Maiduguri on Thursday evening.
The Governor’s visit was to follow up on Indimi’s pledge to make huge contributions in areas of infrastructure and agriculture to support ongoing efforts by the Government to rebuild homes, rehabilitate and resettle internally displaced persons in safe communities destroyed by insurgents.
The Billionaire said in addition to what he sees going on, he had sent a group of his children to visit sights of some ongoing Government projects taking place outside the city centre and the reports he got were very positive. Indimi promised to intervene in areas of modern agriculture so as to create livelihoods for internally displaced persons who return to safe communities.
The Billionaire business man said efforts must be combined to rebuild the economy of Borno State with particular focus given the places like Baga where where nearly 50% of Borno’s economy was coming from prior to insurgent attacks.
Governor Shettima thanked Indimi for his passion describing his offers as overwhelming.
