Abuja - The Amo National Development Association (AMONDA), a group based in the Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State, has resolved to support the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Plateau State, Gyang Nyam Pwajok.

The association stated this at a stakeholders meeting convened by Bitrus Nabasu in Katako community of Pengana Constituency in Bassa.

According to National President of the group, Simon Harry, Pwajok was endorsed after the group resolved to look beyond ethnic considerations in the interest of good governance.

He said the visit of Pwajok to Katako community was a great honour to the Amo people and a sign of a better future.

Harry praised Pwajok’s work at the Senate and expressed appreciation to him for providing a community hall to the Amo people in Jengre.

He noted that apart from political expediency in terms of carrying all the ethnic groups in Plateau State along, there was a greater need of ensuring that a capable hand is given the mandate to take Plateau to a greater height.

“No other person is well positioned to do it than Pwajok and the PDP,” Harry said.

Convener of the stakeholders, Nabasu, who was among the 15 aspirants that contested with Senator Pwajok said they believe in the competence, capability and credibility of Pwajok.

Nabasu added that there was no need to vote for another party because the PDP, under the leadership of Governor Jonah David Jang, had fixed many pressing challenges in the state.

He promised to work tirelessly to ensure the victory of PDP at all levels.

Pwajok thanked the people for the impressive turn-out to receive him and promised to give them quality leadership when elected.
