PLATEAU STATE – The Senator Representing Northern Senatorial District, Senator Istifanus D. Gyang, in pursuit of his desire to ensure that his constituency projects under the 2020 Budget are executed in accordance to specifications and required standards, on weekend undertook a two-day assessment tour of the projects in Jos North, Jos East, B/Ladi and Riyom LGAs.
It would be recalled that Senator Gyang is rated among the top 10 Senators in number of Bills and law making capacity, a feat he manifested in the House of Representatives when he was rated among the top five.
Senator Gyang has not left his constituents in doubt when it comes to attracting education, social and rural infrastructure.
The inspection tour covered his 2020 Constituency projects, which are nearing completion, at the following locations: Solar Borehole at Ikukkumung community, Tudun Wada, Jos North and Solar Borehole, Fudawa, Jos North.
Others include three classroom blocks, Sabon Gari Fobur, Jos East, 200 capacity Town Hall and offices, Heipang, B/Ladi, and three classroom blocks at Sanbak, Riyom LGA.
He also took time to inspect a rural road grading by FERMA at Rawuru and three classrooms project at GSS Rapyam, Barkin Ladi LGA, constructed under CRDP, World Bank-funded, of which the Senator paid the mandatory 10% counterpart to attract the project to the school.
While in Jos North, the Senator interfaced with Angwan Rogo community where it was unanimously agreed that the classrooms earmarked for the community be sited at Ungwan Rimi.
Similarly, a site at ECWA Staff School Junction, Hwol, Jos, where pupils take lessons under a make-shift corrugated zinc structure will get a 3 classrooms block from the Senator.
The Senator’s entourage had a detour at the 32nd ECWA Jos DCC Council meeting at its secretariat on Rukuba Road, Jos, before proceeding to the recently completed GNS Pwajok Town hall on Bauchi Ring Road, which was initiated and built by the late Distinguished Senator GNS Pwajok.
Minority Leader of Plateau State House of Assembly, Hon. Peter Ibrahim Gyendeng, and Hon Surv. Esther Simi Dusu of Jos North/West accompanied Senator Gyang on the inspection tour, amongst other dignitaries and aides.
At all the sites visited, encomiums were showered on the Senator by the people for keeping to his campaign promises and his impact-making representation. Jos South and Bassa LGAs will be next to receive the positive impact touch of the Senator.
