President of the 9th Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan, on Friday, inspected ongoing projects in Yobe North Senatorial District.
The projects are the construction of a Community Centre; and 2000 capacity student hostel and clinic at the Federal University of Gashua.
Both projects are facilitated by Lawan who is the lawmaker representing Yobe North Senatorial District in the National Assembly.
Lawan was taken on a tour of the ongoing projects by the Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Gashua, Professor Maimuna Waziri; and the Acting Director of Works and Fiscal Planning, Engr. Haruna Gashua.
The Vice Chancellor told Lawan that the Community Centre, which has a 2,500 sitting capacity, is currently in the second phase of construction.
The former Senate President, who also inspected the ongoing construction of a 2,000 capacity student hostel and clinic at the Federal University of Gashua, expressed satisfaction with the level and quality of work.
He, however, urged the contractor to hasten the completion of both projects to allow students access to the facilities in good time.
The procurement process for the construction of the student hostel for both male and female is currently ongoing and captured in the 2023 Appropriation Act.
