He was a former Director, research and documentations Government House, and later Chief of Staff under Jonah Jang’s administration. He later became the Senator that represented Plateau North Senatorial district before vying for governorship of the state in 2015.

Jang on his part said “as a detribalised man, Sen. 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. It is for this singular cause that he lived and flourished to his exit. His greatest desire even in death; is to see Plateau people and the nation at large become one unified, indivisible entity”.
