He said: “Today is historical as interventions to the tune of N500m has been provided for the 275 CDAs, ranging from N1m to N10m. I am happy to note that the volume of this grant is historic and will be a continuous exercise. I am aware that projects ranging from Townhalls, police posts, hospitals and others will be completed. It is my expectation that all the projects covered by this grant will be completed for the usage of the communities.”
