The site of an ongoing educational project sponsored by the Universal Basic Education Commission,UBEC at GSS Jak played host to the MUCDA National President, Chief Pedro Ardiyel Dafur during the sallah break.
The President undertook the visit to see for himself progress and quality of work which is the construction of a two classroom block at GSS Jak which had since commenced.
Dafur appreciated the progress and quality of work and charged the contractor to maintain standard and meet up the delivery dateline.
He pointed out that when completed and fully furnished,it will afford students an environment to learn with ease and aid in the development of education in the area.
According to Dafur,the approval for the project which was secured by MUCDA through the coordination of one of its sons, Rear Admiral Timothy Dakwat will also have a solar powered system to ease in terms of light.
Meanwhile the President Mupun Cultural and Development Association MUCDA, Chief Pedro Ardiyel Dafur has called for immediate action to salvage the popular bend on the Panyam,Jiblik,Abwor Dis,Shendam road known as kwanan machiji.
He said the bend which serves as a major road to the southern part of the state as well as link to other states such as taraba needs to be looked into as it is almost giving in to erosion.
He said the economic,and other importance of that road cannot be over emphasized as such government must see the need to address the challenge of the road as very important.
While stating that MUCDA had already taken its cry to the appropriate quarters,there is the need for such a reminder as the coming months usually come along with heavy and sustained rains which can be a challenge to the existence of that road.
The MUCDA President said many parts of the central and southern Plateau which is also known to be agrarian would be totally cut off until they go through longer distances to access markets,healthcare and other services.
Calling on motorists to ply the road with absolute caution,Dafur expressed optimism that the road will receive the required attention in no distant time.
