Committee Dr. Cairo Ojougboh and the Members of the Interim Management Committee to take a special notice of Okmas Engineering Company as they continue with their Contractors verification exercise and if the company is found wanting, whatever disbursement that has been made to her be recovered and be prosecuted accordingly.
