Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause a lack of engine power but if there is no throttle response whatsoever then there is a good chance there is no signal from the accelerator pedal position sensor, either due to a wiring or sensor issue.

The first step in Mandingo the problem will be to use a code reader or scan tool to see if any fault codes are setting. Have you checked for codes?
