“It is obvious that before we can move down finally, there is the need for the most important facilities to be available such as laboratory, technical workshops and other departmental necessities which of course are already under-way while we improvise for other logistics supports.

Also, the insinuation of the Private Mail Bag still reading ‘Kabba’ on the sign post erected in permanent site, Mopa, this shall be corrected to “Mopa” since Mopamuro has her own PMB when we have eventually relocated and other properties of the school have been relocated to the new host Local Government.
