The Sun newspaper also noted Mutfwang’s rebuttal.

The Plateau government’s statement partly reads:

“Governor Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang’s victory was resoundingly established on March 18, 2023, through the people’s popular votes and validated by INEC.

“No amount of grandstanding, cheap propaganda, or satanic press releases can change the will of God for Plateau state.

“Merchants of destabilisation don’t understand that key stakeholders in society recognise His Excellency’s legitimacy. This is something to cheer about and not embark on a spree of negative campaigns.”
