Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State has strongly refuted recent allegations that judges received a $5 million bribe to nullify his election victory.
In an official statement released in Jos, the state capital, by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Gyang Bere, Governor Mutfwang dismissed the claims as baseless and defamatory.
He condemned the publication and attributed it to the deliberate actions of his detractors who aim to create discord between him and the esteemed judges and other authorities. Governor Mutfwang expressed deep concern over the matter and called for thorough investigations by security agencies to identify and apprehend those responsible for the libelous publication. He emphasized the importance of holding these individuals accountable under the law to discourage similar misconduct in the future.
Governor Mutfwang dismissed the report as fabrications orchestrated by individuals manipulated as pawns by the opposition party in Plateau State. He highlighted that such malicious actions are attempts to tarnish the image of the PDP government in the state. However, he affirmed his unwavering support for the judiciary and warned those disparaging the justices and respected leaders to immediately cease their destructive activities or face severe consequences for their actions.
