” You are to ensure that projects such as roads and drainages construction are share to all local government areas.

He appreciated Gov. Abdullahi Sule for embarking on projects that have direct bearing on the lives of the people of the State.
The Chairman urged the MD and his management team to continue to be up and doing in order to take the board to the greater height.
