Allege that Plateau workers would become beggars if Mutfwang emerges Governor
Cross sections of ex staff of Mangu local government council of Plateau state on Saturday vowed to work against the Candidate of the People’s Democratic party PDP in the forthcoming Gubernatorial election in the state Hon Caleb Mutfwang over constant non payment of salaries while he was council boss of Mangu LGA of the state .
A former staff of Mangu local government council of Plateau state who gave her name as Nanret Thompson, who spoke on behalf of the aggrevied former staff of the council said the constant owing of salaries of the PDP Governorship candidate while he was council chairman forced them to abandon their jobs for farming .
“We the former LGA chairmen of Mangu local government would never support him ,because some of us became beggers while he held sway as council boss .”
Mrs Thompson alleged that some of the workers about 15 of them had to jettison the local government council job while Mutfwang was council chairman because of the non payments of salaries.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja on Saturday ,she said ” I on behalf of other aggrevied former council staff would never support the Candidate of the PDP because of his pass records as council boss.
” Yes we are from Mangu local government council but we would not support the PDP candidate because of how he treated us when he was council chairman,the constant non payment of salaries as well as his absence while he was in office is the problem ,he was not accessible as council boss and then he did not pay us our salaries as when due .
In her words ,” If Mutfwang would treat us that way and manner as Council Chairman ,I wonder how he would treat citizens of Plateau if elected Governor ,so for that we would work against his candidacy .
“We are members of the PDP and we would support our candidate in the house of assembly and senate ,but for Governorship we would never support the PDP Candidate ,we have vowed to use everything within our capacity to ensure the success of another Candidate from our local government Mangu because we can not trust the state in the hands of Mutfwang .
I call on the people of Mangu local government to reject Mutfwang because we can not see the good intentions he has for Plateau .
She alleged that Mutfwang as council boss did not only fail to deliver but also allowed decay in critical areas like health and educational sectors in Mangu .
“There was also high insecurity in Mangu local government council due to menace of jobless youths when Mutfwang was council chairman .
We would work for the victory of another candidate from Mangu local government but not that of the PDP .
In her words ” my people are rallying around Mutfwang because he is from our local government ,I am calling on the people of Mangu to reject him at the polls and support a better candidate ,he has been tested as a council boss and he failed us .
We would do everything possible not to support him ,she added .
There were better candidates in the PDP but powers that be in the Peoples Democratic forced Mutfwang on us and we would reject him at the polls .
“In Mangu ,we have other candidates in other various political parties like the PRP and we would work for their victory ,she added .
