Plateau State Governor and Chairman of the Northern Governors’ Forum, Simon Lalong, has been appointed Director General of All Progressive Congress Presidential Campaign Council.
The APC National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, disclosed this to State House Correspondents on Thursday shortly after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
He said, “We are here to see Mr. President to brief him and to get his approval of plans that we are having regarding our campaign outfit.
“And once we have his approval, we intend to make major disclosure. We’re on the same page with the Presidential and the individuals who will play various roles in the campaign.
“The DG of the campaign is seated by my right here. Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State.
“We have a spokesperson in the person of Festus Keyamo. The deputy spokesperson is Hannatu Musawa. This is what we came to discuss with the President.”
According to Adamu, Lalong was chosen based on his ability to do the work required to ensure victory for the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu-Kashim Shettima ticket in the 2023 presidential elections.
He said, “He has the ability to do it. The party leadership has seen that he is capable of running the affairs of the campaign outfit.”
