"God will safeguard the mandate Plateau people gave Governor-elect Caleb Mutfwang" - Senator Jang

Former Governor of Plateau State, Senator Jonah David Jang, has proclaimed that God will safeguard the mandate Plateau people gave Governor-elect Caleb Mutfwang (GCM), at the election petitions tribunal, against the backdrop of insinuations that the mandate would be seized in court.

Senator Jonah Jang made the proclamation when a delegation of elders from Ampang West District of Mangu Local Government Area (LGA), where the Governor-elect hails from, paid him a courtesy visit at his Du, Jos South LGA residence, on Thursday.

Leader of the delegation Baba Elisha Dapul stated that the elders embarked on the visit to thank the former Governor and show their appreciation, for standing by their son and supporting him to victory in the recently concluded gubernatorial elections. 

Senator Jonah Jang who was amazed by the visit thanked the delegation for coming and stated that God made Barr. Caleb Mutfwang (BCM), Governor, not him, or anyone else, hence no one should share in the glory of God.

He used the occasion to urge people to disregard insinuations that their mandate would be seized in court, stressing that God will safeguard it.

"Some people have been saying that our mandate would be seized in the court, but I said God knows there is a tribunal, yet he gave us the governorship. He who gives has given us. By His power, he has given us, and He will surely safeguard our mandate in the tribunal".

The former Senator of Plateau North, also called on the public to ignore rumor-mongers attempting to damage his reputation recently, stating that he has never asked the Governor-elect to appoint anyone in whatever capacity, nor is any member of his family interfering in any way. 

The courtesy visit by Ampang West District elders had in attendance, the Member representing Mangu South State Constituency, Hon. Bala Fwangje, and other prominent sons and daughters of the district, and featured cultural dances and songs of thanksgiving to God.
