He described the victory as validation of the will of the People in the 2019 governorship election.
Lalong in a statement issued by his Director of Press and Public Affairs Dr. Makut Macham, said he was not surprised by the court verdict as all the while, he has never doubted the validity of the People’s mandate reposed in him and the APC.
“This is not a victory for me but for the entire People of Plateau State who have demonstrated faith in our Rescue Mission. Like I have repeatedly said, I am Governor for everyone irrespective of party, tribe, religious or any other affiliation. I am ready to carry everyone along,” Lalong said.
