Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State has called for justice and fairness for all PDP lawmakers in the state sacked by the Court of Appeal.

Mutfwang, who earlier had his governorship election annulled by the appellate court but reversed by the Supreme Court, harped on the need for equity in the matter.

The governor was reacting to the situation while addressing newsmen when he visited Sonny Echono, Executive Secretary, Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), in Abuja.

Governor Mutfwang appreciated Nigerians for their concerns on the matter and underscored the need for justice, fairness, and equity in the delivery of judgment.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the Appeal Court’s sacking of all state and federal lawmakers of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau is generating public reactions.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja had, in November 2023, sacked all 16 members of the PDP in the Plateau House of Assembly, five from the House of Representatives and two senators from the state.

Their sack was over a pre-election matter bordering on alleged disobedience to a court order and lack of political structure.

In the same vein, the appellate court sacked Gov. Caleb Mutfwang on the same grounds.

However, only the governor was lucky enough, as the apex court sometime last week reversed the decision of the Appeal Court and upheld his victory.

“We are particularly grateful for the concerns Nigerians have shown. At the moment, there is no clear-cut answer to the question, but I can tell you that discussions are ongoing.

“So it is a work in progress. And when we are done, I am sure Nigerians will get to know the path we have chosen to take.

“At the end of it, this concern for justice is well noted, and I pray that it becomes one of the values of our national existence.

“If, in every facet of life, we insist on justice, fairness, and equity, I believe Nigeria will become a great country,” he uttered.
