A Member Representing Shendam, Quan pan, Mikang Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Alphonsus Komsol says the approval for the siting of a Federal Polytechnic in Shendam will help in improving the standard of education in the Constituency and the Country at large.
Speaking with journalists in Jos, the Member said he re-introduced the bill which was first sponsored by his predecessor Johnbull Shekarau because of its importance and believe in continuity irrespective of Party.
The Member appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari for approving the siting of the Project in Shendam as well as the approval of 2 billion naira for immediate take off.
Komsol, who described the project as a dream come true, applauded the contribution of prominent sons and daughters of the area which includes Governor Simon Lalong, Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Ahmed Idris and Minister of Women Affairs Dame Pauline Tallen.
The lawmaker said he has already come up with a bill for establishment of a Federal Medical Centre, Piapung to meet the health needs of his people, the Federal College of Agriculture Namu as well as some road projects, all of which he believed would be concluded before the end of his tenure.
On the on-going APC membership registration, Komsol described the process as satisfactory as a lot of mobilization had been made, with many people eager to register.
