Supreme Court judgement: Mutfwang commends Tinubu’s neutrality


Following the affirmation of his election as Governor of Plateau State on Friday, Caleb
Mutfwang has commended President Bola Tinubu’s neutrality and the courage of the Justices of the Supreme Court.

He also said their actions have left an indelible mark on the hearts of the people of Plateau State who are rolling out drums to celebrate his victory at the Supreme Court.

He acknowledged that power comes from God and called on the people to unite and give him the maximum support to deliver good governance.

The governor was received on his return from Abuba by a large crowd at the Yakubu Gowon Airport before making his way through the line-up of citizens along the highways to a grand reception at the Langfield Resort in Jos.

Addressing the mammoth crowd, Mutfwang said, “God is the giver of power, we know no one but we know God, and he looked at us with mercy and gave us victory.


“Thank you, God, thank you Plateau people, thank you, Mr President, thank you Supreme Court for doing the right thing.

“This is the gathering of Plateau people, it is beyond PDP. We have always believed in the judiciary as an institution, our respect and belief in justice was restored.”

According to him, “What the people of Plateau, Nigerians have done has spurred me and I will continue to live for the interest of Plateau and bring good governance to the people.”

Also speaking, former Governor of the State, Jonah Jang, called for unity among citizens.

Jang said, “I only give glory to God for this victory. If there is any party without structure in Plateau State, it is the APC people who walked out during their congress and the former governor announced the APC flag bearers.

“Their state chairman didn’t buy form but that was not our business. Governor Mutfwang is a man with a lion’s heart, he is a God-given governor.

“Plateau people prayed, Nigerians prayed, people around the world prayed and God answered the people’s prayers and touched the heart of the Justices of Supreme Court of Nigeria and they brought the truth out.

“Mutfwang should forgive, but when you see any wrong done to Plateau people, look into it according to the law.

“Now is the time for governance, I challenge you to work and surpass my record.”

Also, the Speaker of the State Assembly, Gabriel Dewan assured the governor of the support of the legislature and called for unity among the people.

In his remarks, Chairman of PDP in the state, Chris Hassan, said, “The journey had been tortuous but the Lord saw us through.

“Plateau people didn’t make a mistake in voting Governor Mutfwang of the PDP.

“I assure you that the PDP is well structured and we will support the governor to deliver good governance to the people.”
