Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang has reiterated his determination to rejuvenate the agricultural industry, with a focus on enhancing the state’s economic prospects.
Mutfwang made this statement on Sunday during the 37th Reunion Service of alumni from Boys High School, Gindiri.
GOSA, as stated by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), consists of individuals who previously attended both Boys and Girls Secondary Schools in Gindiri.
As a member of GOSA, the governor recognized the pivotal role played by the agricultural sector in revitalizing the state’s economy and pledged to employ a multi-sectoral strategy to revive vital agricultural initiatives within the state.
By forging stronger and consistent partnerships with state institutions, he vowed to accomplish this.
‘My administration will place more emphasis on agriculture in order to boost the economy of the state,’ he said.
He announced that he had implemented a strong security structure aimed at securing lasting peace in the state.
However, he pointed out that the safety of lives and property, especially in troubled areas, required a collective effort.
He lauded his former school for its role in nurturing leaders and industry pioneers who have had a positive influence not only in their immediate communities but also far beyond.
‘Our alma mater is known for nurturing competent leaders. A ready example is the late J.D. Gomwalk, the first governor of the then Benue-Plateau.’
‘He contributed significantly to the peace, unity and development of Plateau and Nigeria,’ he said.
Rev. Benjamin Pokol, the General Secretary of the Church of Christ in Nation (COCIN), used his sermon to implore Nigerians to proactively drive positive change at all times.
He also stressed the need for Christians to maintain unwavering faith in their service to God and for GOSA members to continue being exemplary representatives of their alma mater.
The President of COCIN, Rev. Amos Mohzoh, commended the governor for his resolve to address the security challenges currently affecting the state.
Moreover, he applauded the government’s commitment to attracting federal projects that would enhance the quality of life for the citizens.
The event, as reported by NAN, was graced by the attendance of dignitaries, including traditional rulers, politicians, experts in various fields, prominent business magnates, religious leaders, and more.
