Hon Daniel Kungmi,the Implementation Committee Chairman of Mikang LGA, has lauded the Judiciary for upholding the tenets of democracy in the country,by upholding the election of Governor Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang and others.
In a statement signed by Suzan Jikop, Information Office on behalf
of the Chairman stated that Chairman stated this after the pronouncement of the judgment of the Supreme court on Friday 13th January,2024 which upheld the election of Governor Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang as the duly elected governor of Plateau State,as mandated by the electorates at the first instance.
The Chairman said that the supreme court has shown that the judiciary is the last hope of the common man,hence it’s wisdom in upturning the earlier judgment of the Appeal Court which had earlier nullified the election of the people’s governor.He said that the judgment of the Apex Court could not have come at a better time than now that the people have seen the dexterity, wisdom and prowess of the governor in his leadership style.
The council boss further said that the victory of the governor at the supreme court is a testament of the fact that the voice of the people is the voice of God .The elated Chairman said the people spoke through their votes and thanked the judiciary for affirming the people’s choice,and strengthening democratic structures in the country by the interpretation of the true nature of the law.
Kungmi appreciated the president of the Republic of Nigeria,His Excellency Bola Ahmed Tinubu for upholding the true principles of democracy by ensuring the freedom of the judiciary in carrying out it’s responsibilities without fear or favour.
The Chairman however called on the NJC to review the cases of the members of the PDP in both the state and national assemblies who were erroneously sacked by the court of Appeal.He said this will go along way in ensuring that justice is not denied the electorates who have chosen their representatives to give them quality representation in both the state and national assemblies.
The Chairman further called on all those that lost in the court to close ranks and join hands with the governor to lift Plateau higher.He said it’s a no Victor no vanquish; it’s a victory for Plateau State.And the Governor is willing to carry everyone along for the progress of the state.
Mr Kungmi said as the governor fully settles down for business, Plateau State will surely witness an unprecedented level of development with the support of all.
