• The Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima has commended the Kano State Government for offering scholarship to 100 orphans in Borno.

    Shettima made the commendation when he addressed beneficiaries of the scholarship at the Government House, Maiduguri.

    Represented by Alhaji Yakubu Bukar, Borno Head of Service, Shettima said that the people of Borno would forever remain grateful for the gesture.

    “This singular effort has given not only signs of relief to guardians, caregivers of the orphans but sense of belonging to the people of Borno,’’ Shettima said.

    He thanked Kwankwaso for having the people of the Borno in mind at the peak of the Boko Haram insurgency.

    Shettima, therefore, called on the beneficiaries to exhibit good moral conduct, now that they would be taking to a new place to study.
