He extolled the virtues of Senator GNS Pwajok, by saying “As a detribalised man, Senator GNS Pwajok served his purpose through his sojourn in politics and his tenure in the red chamber by bringing together different people, divergent views and ideologies with the sole aim of unifying all. His greatest desire even at death, was to see Plateau people and the nation at large become one unified and indivisible entity”.

In closing, Jang said “ I join Plateau people in praying that God gives his soul recompense for the good he impacted on humanity and call on all well-meaning Nigerians and Plateau people, especially those whom his last call of duty, was to represent in the National Assembly, to stand by the family and honour the memory of the departed senator, who sold himself to service of humanity, country and state”.
