Plateau mourns nation builder Pwajok

30 October 2015, 12:04

Plateau - Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, has paid tribute to Senator Gyang Pwajok, the late People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the April gubernatorial election.

The Governor said he was deeply aggrieved as death had robbed Plateau of the contribution of the distinguished legislator, whose wealth of political and legislative experience would have added value in the bridge building project on the Plateau as well the peace and conflict resolution process in the Northern Senatorial District.

“The Governor holds in high esteem accounts of his (Pwajok) selfless efforts in seeing to the resolution of the several violent conflicts in the Northern Senatorial District which he represented in the 7th Assembly of the Senate. Death has no doubt robbed the state of the robust contribution of the distinguished senator to nation building,” said Lalong.

He said as the state mourned the demise of this astute and vibrant politician, the Governor on behalf of his family and the good people of Plateau commiserated with his family, the Berom Nation and the National Assembly over this loss.

He prayed for God’s comfort and eternal rest for the soul of the departed senator.

Pwajok died on Wednesday in an Indian hospital at the age of 49 after a protracted liver ailment.
