Governor Simon Bako Lalong of Plateau State has met the Pro-Chancellor University of Jos, Prof. Attahiru Jega with an assurance that the State Government is working on improved security and transportation for the staff and students of the University .

 Prof. Jega, who is also the Chairman of the Governing Council, was on a courtesy visit to Simon Lalong at Govt. House Jos.

 He said the students required improved security to  thrive well in their academic activities, saying the school was vulnerable during the recent attacks in the state .

 “We need continous support and improvement to ensure peace, stability and security within the University and environs for its growth and development,” he said.

 Jega said that the university also needs  buses which  would operate within the school, to minimise risk of  insecurity students experience when patronising commercial transportation.
 He said improving security in the institution  would build the confidence of the students and  staff of the school in their teaching and learning activities .

Jega applauded Gov Lalong for his efforts towards building lasting peace in the state and the success of the local Govt Polls, urging him to continue doing his best  to ensure inclusiveness and harmony in the political terrains while pledging the council’s  support .

 In his remark, Governor Simon Lalong appreciated the Pro Chancellor for his contributions in improving education in Plateau, having also served as Pro Chancellor of the Plateau State University Bokkos.

He disclosed that strategies have already been mapped out to improve security in routes leading to the University and other parts of the State.

He said  efforts are already been made to provide chartered buses  for students , while commercial vehicles would be highly screened for registration to operate within the school,  to ensure the safety of students and staff of the institution.

Lalong expressed confidence that the Pro Chancellor would extend his good works and exeperience in school administration and other responsibilities, for the development of the institution.
