Amidst the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Niger state Government has recalled all contractors handling various projects in the state to site.
Niger state Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, announced this while inspecting some road projects under construction in Minna the state capital.
He said that life cannot be put on hold because of COVID-19.
A statement by Mary Noel-Berge, Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the governor obtained by Summit News, said Gov. Sani Bello, maintained that normal life and government should move on as it was not definite when the pandemic will come to an end.
He called on those handling the various projects to observe all the precautionary measures put in place to avoid contracting and spreading the virus.
