As Governor-Elect of Plateau State, Caleb Mutfwang warms up to take over the baton of governance from Simon Lalong on May 29, youths from the Peoples Democratic Party PDP who aided the emergence of Mutfwang have begun lobbying to key into the new administration.
The Directorate of Youth Mobilization of the Atiku-Mutfwang Campaign Council led by Hitler Joshua Pwajok made their intentions known on Friday when they paid a visit to the Governor-elect.
He said, Plateau youths would want to be active participants in the incoming administration of Caleb Mutfwang on the Plateau.
Hitler who led Directors of the Youth Directorate including zonal and Local Government Coordinators to pay homage to Mutfwang noted that youths of Plateau expect to constitute over 40% of the workforce under Mutfwang’s administration.
The Governor-Elect seized the forum to commend the youth population, saying indeed thousands of Plateau Youths did the state proud in the recent gubernatorial election.
He said thousands of youths from every nook and cranny of Plateau State mobilized not only to vote but also to protect their votes from being rigged and manipulated.
“You didn’t do this for Caleb Mutfwang, you did it for Plateau People. You fought for your father’s land, you fought for your mothers, you fought for your sisters, you fought for your brothers. You fought for children, you fought for even the ones yet unborn,” he told the visiting youth leaders.
The incoming governor vowed that he would do everything within his power to avert the ugly experiences that characterised the last 8 years.
