Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State expressed thanks and trust in the judicial process in reaction to his recent Supreme Court victory. His status as the constitutionally affirmed Governor of Plateau State has been cemented by the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn his removal.
Governor Mutfwang spoke exclusively to Channels Television about the legal road that led to this critical Supreme Court decision. With foresight, he stated that he expected the Court of Appeal’s decision would be reversed, demonstrating his faith in the legal system.
Governor Mutfwang’s upbeat view was reinforced when he remarked that even if the court decided against him, he would have accepted the judgment gracefully.
In his own words as seen on Channels television tonight…
“I would’ve been surprised but I would’ve taken it, it’s the final court of the law. If I was sacked by the court today, I would’ve taken it in good faith, I had no extra plans because I didn’t think I was going to be sacked.
I was confident that the Supreme Court is going to reverse the judgement of the court of appeal. 2 things have me confidence of this happening, one is God and two is the law.
The law has never been unambiguous, the issues in my case was anchored basically about the issues of nomination and sponsorship of candidates, which is not within the jurisdiction of tribunals.
The other issue had to do with a sub-purported disobedience of a court order, which was a contrived lie that was packaged and presented to the court of appeal.”
