He directed the State Commissioner for Education, Professor Dennis Ityavyar to, “immediately compile the list of challenges confronting the two schools visited in order of priority and forward same to him for attention.”

Principal Special Science Senior Secondary School Makurdi, Mrs. Lilian Ameh, who expressed delight over the Governor’s visit, identified uncompleted projects in the school to include Girls Hostel, multipurpose hall, clinic and technology centre which she said needed urgent attention.

Rector of Alfred Akawe Torkula College of Advanced and Professional Studies, Professor Barns Anger, commended Governor Ortom for the foresight to convert the institution into a Polytechnic, saying the gains would outlive his administration and benefit generations to come.
