After the Inspection of the project site, Ashafa, stated: “President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to the execution of projects is nothing we have seen in recent times.
“Having gone round this project site I can only say that we are very impressed at the level of progress on this project made possible through frequent capital releases by this administration to ensure its completion. This is impressive.”
“It is important to note that this project commenced under the administration of President Buhari and same is being replicated in Ebonyi and Gombe. The Abuja outreach Centre commenced in 2007 but it was stalled due to inadequate capital releases.”
