Abonta noted that the proposed secretariat building under construction, will be a five storey building when completed, but expressed delight with the fact that within 10 months of the project, two storeys have already been completed.

‘’We are barely 10 months, and we have been able to take the building to the second floor, that means in the next 6 months or so,we will be at the last floor of the building, that is our target. Our next target is that we will begin operating from this building in the next one year’’. He said.

He further expressed satisfaction with the progress of work done and called on the contractors to maintain the standard.

‘’We are not totally novice in construction, because most of us here are project managers, and we have also done projects of this magnitude, and so when we see a good job we know that it is good’’.

‘’And authoritatively on behalf of the team that visited here today, I say that the quality of work is good and acceptable to us’’. Said Abonta.
