The United Nations Development Programme has lauded Yobe State governor, Mai Mala Buni for developing health and education to move the state forward.
UNDP resident Representative, Mohamed Yahya, stated this in Damaturu Tuesday after a facility tour of the 375-bed capacity maternity and child healthcare complex.
He said the two pillars of Governor Buni’s development agenda of investing in health and education are in line with the Sustainable Development Goals programme.
Mohamed Yahya who said the investment in the health sector is pretty impressive added that Yobe State is back on the path of development after the devastation by the insurgency.
In a statement signed by Mamman Mohammed, the Director General, Press and Media Affairs to Governor Buni, the resident representative said the state is catching up with the Sustainable Development Goals.
Earlier, Governor Buni said his administration embarked on massive reconstruction of the facilities to speed up the reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery programme following the destruction by the Boko Haram insurgency.
