Plateau youths on Saturday trooped out to the streets of Jos, the state capital, for a solidarity walk for the state Governor, Caleb Mutfwang.
The youth, who sang solidarity songs, gathered first at the popular Secretariat Junction and ended the walk at the Old Airport Junction where they pledged their support for the Peoples Democratic Party government.
They said from the experience of the state, no governor had impacted their lives and implemented a tremendous development agenda within a short period as Mutfwang.
At the flyover bridge near the state secretariat, the convener of the solidarity walk, Sokshak Shikse, addressed the crowd and commended them for showing interest in the affairs of the state.
He assured them of sustained development projects across the 17 Local Government Areas of the state by the Mutfwang-led administration
Shikse, who also warned against any attempt to truncate the overwhelming mandate given to the governor by the people, said, “Within months after his inauguration, his administration through the agency, God’s Will and the support and partnership of relevant bodies, made tangible progress in providing security, roads and amenities, human capital development among other developmental strides.
“His passion for fostering unity and peaceful coexistence among various demographics in the state has not been unnoticed by all. Indeed, the people of Plateau have, within a short space of time witnessed the dividends of exemplary leadership, a quality which the state has been bereft of for many years.
“These, and much more are the reasons the Plateau Support Network and indeed responsible citizens of the state have gathered here to express our unequivocal, unalloyed and resounding support and vote of confidence for His Excellency, Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang and his ‘The Time Is Now’ administration, through this solidarity walk.”
The convener added, “We believe that the works of faithful public servants of his ilk leave legacies that will positively affect the lives of generations yet unborn. Patriots who live and work through the empowerment of moral rectitude and an acute sense of service leave the hallmarks of joy and peace in the lives of the people, who have reposed their trust in them. This, is the consistent path of this administration, as is evident for all to see”
“Recent events at the appeal court have left a lot to be desired. The popular will of the peace-loving people of Plateau State as expressed at the polls on the 18th day of March 2023 is under a looming threat. We only ask that the courts recognise and respect the mandate given by the people to this administration, and strictly adhere to the provisions of the constitution regarding the process of its judgments at the petitions tribunal.
“We have faith in the hallowed chambers of the Judiciary of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and believe that her worthy Judges will execute temperance and an unwavering sense of justice while hearing and judging the elections petition case at the supreme court, God helping them.
“The people of Plateau State will hold on to their witness of our dear state rising out of the ashes of gross mal-governance, and our strong faith in the action administration of His Excellency, Governor Caleb Mutfwang, to the glory of God.”
