He reiterated that the NYSC would not compromise quality at any time and urged all intending contractors to always procure good quality products.
Secretary, Tenders Board, Alhaji Bawa Abubakar, who read out all the bids in the presence of all the vendors, explained that some bidders were disqualified because they forwarded blank bids which had no amount attached to them.
