On the last day of his three-day visit to Damasak in Borno State, governor Babagana Umara Zulum supervised the enrolment of 1,163 internally displaced children into primary school.

The children had been out of school since the displacement of their parents and guardians by Boko Haram insurgents who invaded their communities.

Media reports said the governor supervised the enrolment campaign.

Zulum appealed to parents to allow their children to enrol in schools.

He addressed secondary school pupils in the town and those who had written their senior school certificate exams, promising them that his administration would support them and help them to prepare for higher institutions so that they could actualise their dreams.

Zulum travelled to Damasak last Saturday when he gave irrigation farmers water pumps, fertiliser, seeds, chemicals and 5,000 naira to help them to cultivate food in this dry season.

On Sunday he donated food items to 10,000 displaced families in Damasak.
