In the Plateau North Rerun Election held last Saturday, Prince Pam Mwadkon of the ADP emerged victorious, securing 122,442 votes for the Plateau North Senatorial Seat. Similarly, Daniel Asama of the Labour Party clinched the Bassa/Jos North House of Representatives Seat with the majority of votes.
The win of Prince Pam Mwadkon Dachungyang of the ADP signifies a significant shift in the political landscape of Plateau North, following the annulment of former Senator Simon Mwadkwon’s election by the Court of Appeal. Notably, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state threw its support behind the ADP candidate, underscoring the significance of this victory in reshaping regional politics.
