It was a moment of joy for Plateau state governor, Barrister Simon Lalong, when he received Miss Sylvia Ulan Andrew, a citizen of Plateau state, who emerged the best in the recently conducted WAEC examinations as she scored “A1” in all the subjects she sat for.
Miss Ulan, who is from Bokkos local government area of the state, is a student of Premier Academy, Lugbe Abuja. She is said to have a history of record-breaking having emerged overall best at national common entrance examinations, which earned her a scholarship by the Shell Petroleum Company.
Governor Lalong congratulated her for the feat and said he was not surprised because of the abundant talents available in the state, and promised that, the state will grant her scholarship to any university of her choice.
He praised her mother for raising her single-handedly since the death of her husband even before Ulan was born.
Also, the Plateau State Coordinator on SDGs, Mr. Sam Damla, who led the family to Government House Little Rayfield, said the performance of the student again shows the potentials that the people of Plateau state possess, which must be harnessed.
Miss Ulan thanked the governor for the reception and promised not to disappoint him and the people of Plateau state, even as she explained that her passion is to be a Chemical Engineer.
