‘’The Schools and Hospital are doing incredibly well and all we want to do is to intervene in areas of need so as to boost the infrastructural demands of the facilities.” he said.

 

 

He maintained further that the Premium Hospital, which he noted was one of the best in the locality was getting huge vote so as to procure ambulances, X-ray machines, Laboratory, Ultra-sound machines and other critical equipment required for excellent discharge of services in the health facility, noting that the pharmacy and other sectors of the hospital would receive critical attention from the fund, which he said was the first phase of fund to be released for infrastructure development in the company none-core sector.

 

 

He commended Mr. Prasanta Mishra, CEO of PSML for his commitment to the resuscitation plan on the company, emphasizing that the rolling mill was fully operational and the company is in advanced stages for the next phase of investment to restart the SMS which would start producing billets locally once it comes on-stream.
