Lalong, who is also the senatorial candidate for Plateau South Senatorial District, assured the people that the Tinubu and Shettima ticket would work for all Nigerians.
“Tinubu and Shettima will work for all Nigerians and also ensure that there is equity, justice and fairness in the distribution of resources of the nation,” he said.

On his part, the Chairman of Shendam Local Government Council, Miskoom Alex Naantuam, pledged that the stakeholders would vote for APC at all levels because of the quality of candidates and their capacity to deliver.
