The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, has revealed why Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State was appointed as the Director-General of the Bola Tinubu Presidential Campaign Council.
Naija News reports that the APC chairman had announced Lalong as the head of the presidential campaign council during a chat with State House correspondents on Thursday.
Adamu had earlier presented Lalong to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja as the DG of Tinubu’s presidential campaign council.
In a chat with reporters on Thursday, Adamu said that the choice of Lalong was based on his ability to do the work required to ensure victory for the party in the 2023 presidential election.
The APC chairman also expressed confidence in the chances of the ruling APC winning the forthcoming elections, stating that the party will continue to work towards improving the lives of Nigerians.
Speaking further, Adamu described the party’s same faith ticket as a “positive development” for the country’s politics.
He said: “Yes, we have been hearing concerns being expressed. In the APC, we believe very strongly, that no matter what description, no matter what faith you will associate with any one of our candidates, we are first and foremost Nigerians.
“There is no doubt in the fact that we have people who stock trade on some of these religious issues.
“Just like you have people expressing fears or concerns about a Muslim-Muslim ticket, there are Christians that welcome it as a positive development, in Nigerian politics. They are Nigerians.”
