JUST IN: Sacked Plateau governor heads to Supreme court

He reiterated his commitment to the rule of law and assured the people that there will be light at the end of the tunnel, as he has unwavering faith in the judiciary and the constitution of Nigeria.

Mutfwang urged his supporters, as well as citizens of the state, to maintain law and order.

He affirmed that the state will be victorious to the glory of God and reassured of his commitment to continually to serve the state with dedication and integrity
