“We will continue to do our best to ensure that we work according to specification, as we have started so we shall finish and deliver the projects to our client as agreed earlier.”

At the state college Nursing sciences Tambuwal, a new gigantic edifice has just begun though at ground level but workers were seen busy excavating and molding iron rods in various shapes for the commencement of the new project.

The site Engineer Mr. Umar Abubakar told journalists that, the project was barely one week old when it was started, but with the level of excavation works done so far works on site would even be completed before the time frame.”

“What we want from Government is to ensure timely regular funding of the project with a view to ensure that, the skyrocketing prices of construction equipment and materials do not hamper execution or temper with the contractual agreement”.

Students at the new college of nursing Tambuwal have since commenced lectures with some of them billed to graduate any moment from now”
