“We are working day and night, as you can see now, the lights are on. The standard of material been used is guaranteed and we are working together with the Works Department of the school to deliver a quality work to the school management.
“The safety tank is been removed, we are evacuating the sewage and other things. The assurance is that students will resume and get relaxed into a newer hostels.
“All the cabinets are been fixed, the wooden doors are been replaced with metal ones and its jam-lock. A conducive environment for students to read and be in good health is what is paramount to us,” he said.
