The Plateau State Government has replaced a lion that was killed at the Jos Wildlife Park this year, an official has said.

The Plateau State Commissioner for Information Mohammed Nazif, stated this on Monday in Jos at the state secretariat during a press briefing.

“You will recall that sometimes during the year, a lion was killed after it escaped its area of confinement. However, there is now a replacement for it with acquisition of another one,” he said.

Mr. Nazif added that “the ministry has (also) acquired a pair of camels, male and a female.”

He said the gesture was to boost tourism in the state, as part of efforts to increase revenue generation.

The commissioner also spoke on backlog of fees owed some students.

“Funds have been released to meet the needs of students on exchange and for the coordination of school exchange programme,” he said.

“N76 million has been approved to settle the backlog of school fee of Plateau State students studying at the National Mathematical Centre Abuja.”

Mr. Nazif also explained that the state government has provided funds to acquire facilities at the college of agriculture, Garkawa.

“The governor recently gave approval for the release of N125 million for the provision of critical facilities required for the accreditation of programmes in the college,” he said.

The monthly press briefing for October had in attendance five commissioners and seven permanent secretaries.
