Monitored from Taal Circle, Gov. Almakura told the leader of the team of engineers Of Ogaba Onazi, that compensation for the thirteen hectares of land has been paid, just as he used the medium to warn inhabitants of Unguwan Rere against indiscriminate cutting of trees, saying the action is detrimental to the environment.
During the visit, it was observed that engineers have already been deployed to the site as foundations, boreholes and other architectural work were being setup.
