Simon Lalong, the governor of Plateau State and director general of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Organization, promised to put forth a lot of effort to ensure the success of the APC presidential election in 2023.
Speaking to a cheering audience at the Yakubu Gowon Airport in Heipang, Jos Plateau State, Lalong revealed this on Thursday, August 4.
He warned Nigerians to keep religion out of politics and to support development, pointing out that the nation’s current problems were not caused by religion.
Lalong stated that his position as the campaign council’s director general demonstrates that Plateau people are respected in national politics and that the state will support the APC.
“Campaigning for Tinubu/Shettima Presidential election will not be a new thing for us in Plateau State, it is not a difficult task at all. It was the same difficulty we face in 2015 when some people said we will not win the election because we are in a Muslim party but we won that election.
“All I want is for us to cement our relationship, Nigeria is one nation. The challenges that we have are not from the Muslims or the Christians, we have common challenges and our duty is to unite the people for development.”
Lalong who is the APC candidate for the Plateau South Senatorial election said he will work assiduously towards the success of the presidential election, his Senatorial election, and the Governorship election in Plateau state.
“I am confident that APC will win not only my Senatorial election but the presidential, Governorship, and all other election in Plateau. It is my duty to work to deliver all APC candidates in the 2023 election.
“I have capable hands ground whom we will work together to deliver APC in the next election,” he stated.
