Plateau state governor, Caleb Mutfwang has described the ruling of the Appelate court that nullified his election as a “temporary setback” that will not deter him from repositioning the state.
Mutfwag expressed strong optimism that the mandate overwhelmingly given to him by the citizens would be restored, as he has instructed his legal team to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.
The governor made this disclosure via a statement signed by his Director Press and Public Affairs, Gyang Bere, admonished citizens of the state and supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to remain calm and assured them that “as long as God remains on the throne, the mandate of the people will be preserved and protected”.
He reiterated his commitment to the rule of law, while assuring the people that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
“We have unwavering faith in the judiciary and the Constitution of Nigeria,” he stressed.
The governor will head to the Supreme court for final ruling on the matter.
