The State of Qatar has pledged to support the Yobe State government in building infrastructure across the state.
This was contained in a statement signed by Malam Mamman Mohammed, Director General, Press and Media Affairs of Yobe.
The Ambassador to the State of Qatar, Abdulaziz Mubarak Al-Muhamadi, who stated this on Friday when Governor Mai Mala Buni paid him a courtesy visit said:
“The State of Qatar would construct schools, clinics and water facilities among others to complement government efforts to improve the lives of the people.
“The State of Qatar will support your government to improve the lives of your people with befitting facilities”, he assured.
The Ambassador said the State of Qatar would also consider a direct flight from Qatar to Yobe through the Damaturu international cargo airport when completed to support direct investment into the state.
Buni said the Yobe State government would provide the necessary support for the partnership to succeed.
“This opportunity will support our programme and focus on infrastructural and economic development in the state”, Buni said.
