The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State as the Director General of its presidential campaign organisation.

The National Chairman of the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, made the announcement yesterday after a meeting behind closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja.

Adamu was accompanied by the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu, vice presidential candidate, Senator Kashim Shettima, and Governor Lalong.

He said the APC settled for Lalong because of his “ability”.

Adamu also announced the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, as the interim spokesman of the organisation and Hannatu Musawa as the deputy spokesperson.

While fielding questions from state house reporters, Adamu said the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the party would not affect its victory in the 2023 elections.

He assured that the concern over the Muslim-Muslim ticket would be settled before next year’s elections.

Lalong, while speaking on his appointment, said he was chosen because of his ability and not on the basis of his Christian faith.

He said, “The party said I’ve been nominated because of my ability. I’ve been a very loyal member of the party. I joined APC because I believe in APC.”
