The Dean of the School noted that the USD 70,000 gesture was borne out of the need for Institutions such as Njala University to meaningfully contribute through research to the policy-making process of the Ministry of Mines especially in terms of mineral exportation.
Dr. Kabba appealed to the Mallam O. Administration to speedily support the Institute in providing the much-needed resources to procure materials such as computer tables, electrical appliances, internet connectivity, air conditioners for the eventual setting up of the laboratory which according to him is long overdue.
