Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State has described as a temporary setback, the verdict of an Appeal Court which sacked him as governor of the state.
In a statement through his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Gyang Bere, the governor said the “temporary setback” won’t deter him from repositioning the state on the path of unity, peace, and progress.
The statement partly read, “He expressed strong optimism that the mandate overwhelmingly given to him by the people of Plateau State would be restored, as he has instructed his legal team to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.”
RoyalTimes gathered that The governor admonished citizens of the state and supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to remain calm and assured them that as God remains on the throne, his mandate will be preserved and protected.
According to the court, the decision of the tribunal to dismiss the petition filed by the APC and its candidate on the ground that the duo had no business meddling in the affairs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on which platform Mutfwang was elected is in breach of Section 177 of the 1999 Constitution as amended and Section 134 (C) of the Electoral Act. The governor said he has instructed his legal team to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.
