Nsa who sued for patience from schools yet to benefit as they would be accomodated in the second phase also announced that all ongoing construction projects in schools will ne completed and put to use as soon as the board completes the project verification process.

“So far, we have been able to push some of the contractors back to site. Some of the projects awarded are at different level of completion while others have been completed. There are lots of road projects with economic values and we intend to complete them as soon as possible. We would also look into some fresh projects but not too many as we are poised to complete the ongoing ones” Nsa said.
