âWe have a great country,â he said, âand we thank God for giving us so many resources. But we have to develop our resources.

The president said the military would attack the northwest hard to stabilize the situation, after purchasing more equipment.
âI am very impressed with what I saw at this state-of-the-art distance learning center and auditorium located here, Maiduguri University. I am told that this international conference hall has 1,300 seats. The high level of quality of this building is a major contribution of Alhaji Muhammadu Indimi. This intervention will not only benefit students from Borno and the North East, but also students from all parts of Nigeria.
“For the Oriental Energy Resources Hangar that I have ordered, it will host and offer support services to planes and pilots involved in humanitarian air services,” the president noted.

In his remarks, Alhaji Indimi said he was motivated to build the Distance Learning Center and the International Conference Center to encourage education in the state.
“I think the center will help provide training and skills as well as encourage those who will take courses in remote locations,” he said.
