The Plateau State University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Yohana Izam has revealed the institution has put plans in place to plant 1,500 trees ahead of this year’s World Environmental Day slated for 5th of June.
Prof. Izam made this known while receiving emissaries led by Prof. Daniel Davou, the Dena of the Faculty of Environmental Sciences, the University of Jos on Friday.
“ This year, we admitted 1,500 students for the 2017/2018 academic session and to celebrate this year’s Environment Day, each student must plant a tree that day which is June 5.
“The gesture is to show our concern in making our environment greenish and protective, hence celebrating the Environment Day in a unique way, ’’ he said.
According to the Vice Chancellor, the institution plans to launch a world-class weather station donated by the Nigerian meteorological Agency (NIMET), this, he said is in addition to the lecture that will hold that day.
He, however, sought for the assistance of the delegation in facilitating the implementation of the plan.
“We are aware that the task to put PLASU on the road map to a world-class university is not easy considering the challenges of finance and other logistics.
“But we are ready to give you the necessary assistance to succeed,’’ he said.
