Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang described the Supreme Court's decision to uphold his election victory as evidence that Nigeria can properly implement its justice system.
This was Myftwang's statement during a Friday interview with Politics Today on Channels Television.
Recall that the appellate court's decision to dismiss the governor was overturned by a five-member panel headed by Justice Emmanuel Agim.
Regarding the apex court ruling, the governor stated that whenever the court makes the right decision, the judiciary would follow suit.
He said: “It has brought out a positive energy in me that we can change the Nigerian system. I have always been an incurable optimist that Nigeria can change.
“What I have seen at the Supreme Court further raises the hope that if the Supreme Court can get it right, the justice system will get it right, and the administration of justice will get it right.
“It therefore means that we can extend this to other areas of our national development. I believe that given the many things happening right now, some of the corrective actions the president is taking will make change possible.”
“What I can tell you about the killings in Plateau and the attacks in recent times are pure acts of terror,” he said.
“I believe that the sponsors of the terrorists, the financiers of the terrorists and those who arm the terrorists are known.
“And the security services know them, or they have the ability to know them. And that is why we insist that the security forces must do their job, which is to protect lives and property,” he said.
