PLATEAU STATE: Late Senator Pwajok ‘honoured’ with Wisdom and Truthfulness
Former PDP gubernatorial candidate, late Gyang Nyam Shom Pwajok, has been described as a man of wisdom, truthfulness, humility, generosity, honesty and selfless service to the state and the country in general.
This was made known during the service of songs and also at the funeral of the late Senator, in their different speeches on Friday, 13/11/2015, in Jos. He was also described as a ‘seed planted in the lives of many.’
In his sermon, Pastor Ezekiel Dachollom, urged the people of Plateau to return to God by asking God to forgive them their sins, for the progress of the state.
He reiterated that, “We should know that God’s ways are not our ways,” adding that, “plateau state has missed a visionary governor with a vision, and if a visionary is dead, the vision cannot died.”
He prayed that, “God will bring another genius among the youths, but if only we turn to God, and also for his soul to rest in peace.”
Speaking also, his running mate during the 2015 gubernatorial race, Yilji Matthew Joseph Gomwalk, described the late genius as a man with a large and gentle heart who accepted all indiscriminately, a generous man, who always thought of others before himself and excellent where he was and whatever assignment he had before him.
According to him, the late senator showed him much wisdom to the handling of men and resources with a great plan and vision for plateau state.
Speaking also the Senate President, Bokola Saraki, called on the people of plateau to embrace peaceful coexistence and emulate the good work of the late senator.
He said, the late senator was a true Nigerian who worked assiduously for the development of the state, the country and internationally, and established himself as one of the key stakeholders in the struggle for plateau project.
Following the Berom traditional road-walk (in this case, from COCIN Church, Du), late Senator Pwajok was laid to rest at about 5pm on Friday in his house in Rayfield Jos, while the Boys Brigade paid their last respect to him.
