Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar extends his felicitations to Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang on his successful defence of the gubernatorial election result.
The Plateau State Governorship, Election Petition Tribunal, recently upheld Governor Caleb Mutfwang’s election victory. The tribunal, led by Justice R Irele-Ifineh, dismissed the petition filed by the All Progressive Congress (APC) and its governorship candidate, Nentawe Yilwatda.
Justice Irele-Ifineh’s verdict emphasized that the issues raised by the petitioners concerning party structure were pre-election matters and thus fell outside the tribunal’s jurisdiction to adjudicate upon.
The tribunal confirmed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had indeed conducted a valid congress on September 25, 2021, in compliance with the order issued by the Jos High Court under the auspices of Justice S.P.Gang. Additionally, it determined that the matter of nomination and sponsorship of a candidate was a pre-election concern.
Atiku Abubakar, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), wasted no time congratulating Governor Caleb Mutfwang. Through a post on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), Atiku lauded the governor’s unwavering leadership and commitment to the people. He expressed confidence in Governor Mutfwang’s ability to deliver an impactful and prosperous tenure in Plateau State.
The court’s decision signifies a legal validation of Governor Caleb Mutfwang’s mandate, reaffirming the trust the people of Plateau State have placed in his leadership. As the governor embarks on his term, the hopes and expectations of the Plateau State populace are focused on continued progress and development under his leadership.
