The Speaker, Plateau House of Assembly, Gabriel Dewan, has assured Governor Caleb Mutfwang of legislative backing to enable him to succeed.
Dewan gave the assurance on Saturday at the reception in honour of Mr Mutfwang after his victory at the Supreme Court.
The speaker said that with the legal battle over, it was time for governance and the legislative arm to do everything they needed to positively contribute their quota for the good of the state.
He described Mutfwang’s victory as a victory for the Plateau people.
He said, “This is a victory for the state, and indeed, I want to use this medium to assure us all that the time of politics is over.
“It’s time for governance, and I want to assure you that on our part in the legislative arm and as the speaker, we will leave no stone unturned to ensure you succeed.
“We will give the executive governor all the legislative backing he desires to move the state ahead.
“I am from the YPP, but the interest of Plateau is greater than any individual interest.
“I stand to unify Plateau, and I want to assure you all that today marks the beginning of a brand new Plateau.”
Dewan, who said that the legislature would work for the common good of all Plateau citizens, also assured the people that he had confidence in the governor’s ability to govern the state because of his antecedents.
“We have worked closely with the governor, and I know he is a listening governor.
“I know he is a man with the fear of God. I know he is someone who will not discriminate against any ethnicity or religion,” he said.
