Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong has promised to sponsor Miss Sylvia Ulan Andrew, a Plateau State indigene who emerged the overall best in the recently conducted West African Examinations Council (WAEC) examinations to any University of her choice in Nigeria for scoring A1 in all the subjects she sat for during the last examinations.
Ulan, who is from Bokkos Local Government Area (LGA) of the State is a student of Premier Academy, Lugbe Abuja.
She is said to have a history of record-breaking results, 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.
Lalong added 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.
Plateau State Coordinator on SDGs, Mr. Sam Damla, who led the family to Government House Little Rayfield Jos, said the performance of the student again shows the potentials that the people of Plateau State possess which must be harnessed.
Ulan in her response, thanked the Governor for the reception and promised not to disappoint him and the people of Plateau State.
She explained that her passion is to become a Chemical Engineer in life.
