With the directive that the command structure in charge of insurgency should move to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, most of the classy hotels in the city have started massive upgrade of their facilities to meet up to the expectations of the new commanders and their aids.
Although most of the functional hotels range between two to four stars, the few that have a semblance of five stars have consistently braced up to meet the accommodation problem occasioned by the increase in military personnel in the town after the devastation of many others by Boko Haram insurgents.
General Manager of Pinnacle Hotel Maiduguri, Daniel Enejo told Nigerian Pilot Saturday that the hotel is bent on making life easy for people in the town, as a result has served as a very safe haven for military and paramilitary personnel who come for interventionist duties and return back to their stations.
According to Enejo, in spite of the tension and curfew, which has become a characteristic of metropolitan Maiduguri, residents and security managers still find time to relax and catch fun in his facility, which has a night clubbing and 24 hours power supply.
He said that when Boko Haram cut down the power supply to Maiduguri for almost a year, regardless of the increase in the cost of diesel, his facility supplied electricity to its customers all day.
The hotel facility, which is very close to the Maiduguri airport, is strategically placed to assist people who are trapped in the lingering curfew which has affected tourism and commercial activities which cannot extend beyond 7:00 pm daily.
The hotel which has 48 standard rooms, equally has chalets for extremely private people, especially security personnel who desire protection and special reservations with their orderlies next to them for security reasons.
With the directive that the command structure that handles Boko Haram should relocate to Maiduguri, several soldiers have been seen in heavy-duty trucks relocating to the town.
