Gov. Mutfwang “Appreciate” Tinubu After Winning At Supreme Court 

177

Following the Supreme Court’s affirmation of Caleb Mutfwang as the duly elected governor of Plateau state, he extended gratitude to President Bola Tinubu for refraining from interfering in the legal battle initiated by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mutfwang’s opponent had contested the election results, leading to a protracted legal dispute.

In an interview with Channels TV late Friday, Governor Mutfwang praised President Tinubu for not leveraging his considerable presidential powers to influence the judiciary against him.

He acknowledged that the President, among the world’s most powerful leaders, could have potentially unsettled the political landscape but chose not to intervene.

“For an African president not to intrude into the political space, we must say kudos to Mr. President,” Mutfwang stated.

He emphasized the importance of allowing the judiciary to operate independently. 

The governor’s comments shed light on the delicate balance between political influence and judicial independence in electoral matters.

Mutfwang’s statements denote that the judiciary was impartial in the ruling because of the noninterference of the President.

However, the backdrop of these statements raises questions about the broader issue of potential interference in justice when it comes to election matters.

In the face of earlier accusations against Tinubu for alleged interference in the judgment that sealed his victory last year, with opposition parties citing irregularities in the election process, and if the judiciary is truly independent.
