While reading the resolutions, the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Danladi, asked the executive to review the terms and conditions of the contract for the project and direct the contractors to complete all outstanding works, while also tasking the state government to order Ogunsola to return to Nigeria to throw light on the grey areas of the project.
