The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Employment, Labour, and Productivity, Senator Diket Plang, who also represents Plateau Central in Plateau State, has expressed shock over the disheartening news of the sudden demise of the immediate past Head of Service of Plateau State, Engineer Sunday Chong Hyat.
Senator Plang, in a signed statement, described the former Head of Service as a consummate, seasoned administrator who left an indelible mark on the state civil service before his retirement earlier this year.
He stated that Hyat dedicated his life to serving Plateau State through the state civil service with indefatigable commitment and professionalism.
According to him, Hyat’s death was a painful loss to the people of Plateau State, especially the civil servants he mentored while in active service. He added that Hyatt was also a disciplined and dedicated personality with unparalleled comportment worthy of emulation.
“Apart from this, the late Hyat embodied humility, an agent of peace, and humanitarian service. Hence, he was elected as the National President of the Gindiri Old Students Association (GOSA), an assignment he handled with a sense of responsibility before his demise last Friday.
“I, therefore, condole with the Hyatt family, the people of Ganawuri, GOSA, and the people of Plateau State over the sad loss of this illustrious son who served the state and humanity and retired meritoriously. May the Almighty God rest his soul and grant his family the fortitude to bear the huge void,” the Senator said.
Senator Plang mentioned that Hyatt would be greatly missed by friends and relatives, praying for the repose of his soul and strength and solace for the family in this difficult, sad, and devastating time
