Education policy tops Lalong’s administration-Cyril Tsenyil

The Accountant General of Plateau State (AG), Mr. Cyril Tsenyil has noted that education sector remained one of the five pillar policies of Governor Simon Bako Lalong led administration in the state.
Mr. Tsenyil stated this while playing host to the Nigeria College of Accountancy Students Association (NCASA) who paid him a courtesy visit in his office at the J.D. Gomwalk State Secretariat Jos, last Thursday.
He called on the students to remain “resolute, stead-fast and patriotic” while in the college and assured then that, he would channel all their requests to the governor, especially the scholarship issue among others.
He told NCASA that, Plateau State government has contributed significantly to the progress of the college since its establishment during late Solomon Lar regime.
Mr. Tsenyil while thanking the students for finding time to pay the visit also sympathized with the NCASA on all its challenges and advised them to read hard, so as to excel in their examinations.
The AG also told the students that, the dwindling economy of the country has pushed the state to the wall, forcing them to look inwards on how the state could generate its revenue for its sustainability.
Earlier in his remarks, NCASA President, Mr. Longbap Dul Sunday told the AG that, they were in his office to congratulate him over his appointment and also explained some of the challenges facing indigent students in the college.
Mr. Sunday told the AG that the indigent students have been receiving harassment on the contribution of the state government to the college by non indigent students, especially on the issue of seats among others.
He also appealed to the state government to assist Plateau students who do not have money to complete their tuition fees before their forth-coming exams in the college.
Also speaking, Plateau State Chairman, Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN), Mr. Ibrahim Makut thanked the AG and his director for the warm reception accorded them during the visit and urged the government to offset some of the costs on the students.
Mr. Makut called on the state government to look into the requests of the students.
