As part of efforts to tackle the prevailing covid 19 pandemic challenges confronting the country, the (ADSUBEB) delivered more personal protective equipment kits to distribute to schools in 21 local government area of the state.
The Chairman of the Board, Dr Ateequ Salihi, disclosed this during the distribution of personal protection equipment to the 21 local government area education authorities at the board headquarters.
Mr Salihi, said while some of the PPEs were distributed before now, others were reserved for the second wave of covid 19 which necessitate the board to commence a new round of distribution.
