Mutfwang heads to S’Court, says A’Court verdict ‘temporary setback’


Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang has described the verdict of an Appeal Court which sacked him as governor, as a temporary setback.

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 governor admonished citizens of the state and supporters of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to remain calm and assured them that as God remains on the throne, his mandate will be preserved and protected.

The governor said he has instructed his legal team to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.

“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,” the statement partly read.

Meanwhile, members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state have roled our drums to celebrate the verdict of the appellate court that sacked Mutfwang.

Party faithful gathered in some areas of the Tudun Wada Ring Road of the Jos North Local Government Area of the state on Sunday to express their joy with musical instruments blasting danceable tunes.
