Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang has reassured that he will defend and protect the mandate given to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) by the people of Plateau during the 2023 General Elections.
Governor Mutfwang also expressed his confidence in the Nigerian Judiciary, that it is comprised of men and women of integrity who will uphold justice in the collective interest of the Plateau people.
Mutfwang made the disclosure on Monday at the Yakubu Gowon Airport, Heipang, shortly after his arrival from an official trip to the USA, where he secured scholarships for some Plateau Engineering students among other significant benefits.
While clarifying that the PDP’s victory in the 2023 elections was fair and unequivocal, he acknowledged concerns amongst Plateau people regarding certain judgments but appealed for calm, emphasizing that despite the setbacks, there will be light at the end of the tunnel.
He assured the people of Plateau State that their hard-won victory would be preserved.
“We have faced challenges, but we are addressing them diligently. I urge our people to remain patient and calm. Our confidence in the judiciary remains unshaken. I believe in the integrity of the men and women in the judiciary who will do what is right when the time comes,” Governor Mutfwang stated.
On his visit to the United States, the Governor shared positive outcomes, stating, “I sought potential investors and forged relationships with both the United States and State Governments, aiming to bring global attention to Plateau State.
” I am pleased to announce that the visit was successful. We engaged in an Agriculture Investors conference with Vice President Sen. Kashim Shettima. We have advanced discussions with the African Development Bank to establish an agro-processing zone in Plateau, which will significantly impact our economy.”
“We also partnered with American institutions for exchange programs and capacity building. Liberty University, for instance, has generously offered five scholarships in Engineering for Plateau State postgraduate students. Additionally, commitments have been made to provide medical equipment for our hospitals. We will continue these discussions and keep the people of Plateau informed.”
Prime Time News reports that the Governor was received by party stalwarts, sons and daughters of the state, executives, legislators, stakeholders and well wishers.
He was also received at the government lodge Rayfield by a large crowd of PDP members and friends amidst jubilation.
