Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau on Friday expressed joy over his victory at the Governorship Elections Petition Tribunal.
The Tribunal upheld the election of Mutfwang of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as the elected governor of the state and dismissed the petition of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
It also said the PDP held valid progress and the nomination of sponsorship of a candidate is solely a pre-election matter.
The governor thanked God and the people of Plateau for his victory and lauded the judiciary for administering justice in tandem with the law.
“I want to thank God Almighty who has made this possible. I want to thank the people of Plateau State who have stood by us.
“And I want to thank their lordships for having the heart to do according to the dictates of their conscience and according to law,” he said.
He assured the people of Plateau of his commitment to delivering on his promises, saying that he would henceforth concentrate on shoring up the implementation of his administration’s policies and programmes.
“We will become more proactive in the days to come and the programmes we have started, we will accelerate.
“We will ensure that we move at the best speed so that we can deliver on the promises we have made to our people,” he said.
