He said, “A lot has been happening behind the scene, maybe not on the pitch of play but a lot of work has been going on at the sites. These works involve a lot of planning, online seminars have taken place, and we have also used the opportunity of the lockdown to make a little bit of progress on our facilities upgrade, which is going on in Lagos and Abuja as well.”
