Kwande congratulates Senator-elect, Reps-elect






ELDER Statesman and former Ambassador to Switzerland, Ambassador (Dr) Miskoom Yahaya Kwande OON, has congratulated the newly elected Senator representing Plateau North, Prince Pam Mwadkon Dachungyang, on his victory at last Saturday’s re-run elections.

He has also congratulated the newly elected member representing Jos-North/Bassa Constituency, Hon. Daniel Asama, who emerged victorious at the re-run election, describing it as: “A Triumph of Democracy: Congratulations to the Winners of Plateau State re-run elections of February 3, 2024”

This came in a press statement signed by the elder statesman himself and made available to SUNDAY STANDARD in Jos, the Plateau State capital shortly after the declaration of the elections results recently.
The elder statesman said, “With great joy and profound gratitude, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the newly elected Senator, (Plateau North Senatorial District), Prince Pam Mwadkwon Dachungyang, and the Member of the House of Representatives, (Jos North/Bassa Constituency), Hon. Daniel Asama, on their resounding victory in the recently concluded re-run election held in Plateau State. Your triumph is a testament to the true spirit of democracy and the unwavering support of the people.

“I have no doubt that both Prince Pam Mwadkon and Hon. Daniel Asama will live up to the aspirations and expectations of the voters, as they embark on this noble responsibility of representing their constituents. May your tenure be marked by dedication, integrity, and a relentless pursuit of progress for our beloved state and nation.

“As we celebrate this momentous milestone, let us not forget the challenges we faced during the post-2023 elections period. It is my sincere hope that Plateau State will swiftly recover from the divisions and tussles that marred our unity. Let us unite as one, for the strength of our state lies in our togetherness”, he advised.

According to Kwande, “It is essential for the government and the people to undertake immediate measures to reconcile and bridge the gaps that have emerged. We must never forget that every citizen, irrespective of their religion or ethnicity, is entitled to their fundamental rights.

“ The use of religion as a tool of disfranchisement must cease; we must affirm that citizenship rights are not conditional on faith.
“Let us also strive to recapture the lost glory of our state, when Jos was hailed as the political Mecca of Nigeria, attracting momentous political events and embracing politicians from all shades and ideologies. We can revive this legacy by nurturing an environment that exudes peace, openness, and security for all. Together, we can restore Plateau State as a beacon of democratic excellence”, he enthused.

Baba Yahaya Kwande, as always addressed, however, expressed his utmost optimism for the future of Plateau State. “I extend my deepest appreciation to all who peacefully participated in the re-run election, be it as candidates or enthusiastic supporters. Our journey towards progress and development continues, and I am confident that we will stand united, empowered by the unwavering spirit of our people.
