He said that government had awarded contract worth over N105 million for the first phase of the reconstruction.
“The government is reconstructing local government audit and pension office destroyed by the insurgents in 2014 at a cost of N39.750 million.
“Similarly, government is expending N32.252 million on rehabilitation of the Ministry of Commerce and N33.593 million on rehabilitation of the Ministry of Agriculture” he said.
