Plateau State Governor Volunteers As Part-Time Teacher

The Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, has pledged to create time and teach for at least one hour weekly as his contribution towards boosting education in the state.

Lalong made the pledge when he received officials of City of Refuge Friends Club, Pankshin.

The governor stated that members of his cabinet, when constituted, would do same, not minding their professions.

“My Deputy, Prof. Sonni Tyoden is teacher,  the director of Research, Prof John Wade, is a teacher, they must teach,” he said.

He acknowledged the importance of education, saying that his administration would give special attention to sector

“We inherited a rot in the sector but are trying to give it the attention it deserves because if you build the roads and the people  are not educated, you have nothing,” he said.

Earlier, Miss Nenpan Zakka, Founder, City of Refuge, told the governor that they came to intimate him of their model of free education, designed by youths, for youths.

She appealed to the governor to volunteer to teacher for free, and to also replicate the model to boost education in Plateau.
