Pam-Hworo congratulated the team, noting that NOA had always had a good working relationship with NAWOJ.
“We’ve always worked together, we always look out for each other wherever we go to.
“I must tell you that the organisation has been very instrumental to the path of the success story we read in NOA today.
“Not just for me personally but I count it as a success story for this team and NOA as a whole,” she said.
While responding to the need for collaboration in terms of awareness creation as regards voter sensitisation, Pam-Hworo said “it is an ongoing process which the organisation executes without segregation.
“Speaking on creating awareness, yes, we do create awareness on issues; we create awareness for Plateau people.
“We work for the citizens, for people across religious, racial and whatever divides, we are working for the good of Nigeria.
“We are not working for a segmented people, what we are doing is for the good of the entire populace.
“Especially for the women, the underprivileged women and young children who do not have a voice”
Mrs Nene Dung, the Chairperson of NAWOJ in Plateau, said that the association hoped to have a beautiful working relationship with NOA.
“There’s alot to be done to salvage the cause of the vulnerable and the underprivileged, particularly in Plateau and the Nigerian society at large.
“We covet your unrelenting support and cooperation in the area of sensitisation and awareness creation.
“Particularly in the fight against Gender Based Violence (GBV) which is on the increase in the state.
“We would continue to fight for the cause of the common man and seek to promote peaceful coexistence in Plateau and its environs”, she said
