The Council also approved variations for contracts involving furniture supply in Junior and Senior Secondary public schools across the state and road construction in the State Capital.

Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri presided over the meeting, which was held on Wednesday at the Council Chambers in Government House, Yola.

Briefing newsmen after the meeting, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon. Neido Kofolto Geoffrey, disclosed that the EXCO deliberated on and approved the sum of N456,318,000 for the supply of fertilizer for the 2024 farming season.
