The Legal Adviser of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Barr. Samuel Kwamkur is set to run for the seat of the Plateau Southern Senatorial district come 2019.

Barr. Kwamkur, an ex Plateau Government appointee in a telephone chat said his intention to bid for the upper national legislative seat follows his passion for robust rural development.

According to him, it is not enough for Christians to pray for positive change but also be active in the sociopolitical affairs of the country.

He therefore intends to bring his political experience and high Christian values to bare in engineering positive change for his people, he said.

Kwamkur believes his election will bridge the gap between the younger and older class in politics.

Equally, the CAN legal pointsman is confident that his being in the NASS will create opportunities for greater youth participation in politics for enhanced societal growth.
