I'll work to ensure Tinubu becomes president in 2023: Lalong

Governor Simon Lalong, the director-general of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign organisation for Bola Tinubu, has promised to foster unity in Nigeria while leading the party’s electioneering.

Mr Lalong stated this at a news conference on Thursday, when he was received by APC members and supporters at the Yakubu Gowon Airport Heipang near Jos.

APC national chairman Adamu Abdullahi, earlier presented Mr Lalong to President Muhammadu Buhari, as APC campaign director-general for Mr Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.

The Plateau governor said the APC presidential campaign would prioritise issues that promoted national development, and urged Nigerians to elect leaders who will facilitate the process.

He implored Nigerians against using ethno-religious affiliation and parochial interests in selecting the leadership of the country.

“Nigeria is one nation. The challenges we have is not for a Muslim or Christian because we have common challenges,” he said.

Mr Lalong assured Nigerians of his capacity to lead the APC presidential campaign, especially with his current position as the chairman of the Northern Governors Forum.

The governor described his new position as a pride to Plateau, and a demonstration of the confidence reposed in its people for their labour for APC.

He appealed to Plateau people and Nigerians to support the party in delivering its presidential candidate and other candidates for elective positions at various levels successfully.
