Gov. Lalong with other stakeholders.

Plateau State Governor and Director General APC Presidential Campaign Council Simon Bako Lalong is optimistic that the North Central Zone will give the Tinubu/Shettima ticket the highest number of votes in the forthcoming elections. 

Governor Lalong expressed this optimism in Jos when he received the North Central Zonal Chairman and Members of his Committee on a courtesy visit to the Government House, Rayfield Jos.

He said the party is very strong in the North Central despite losing Benue State one out of its six States after the Governor left for the opposition party.

He challenged the Zonal Chairman and his members to reach out to all organs of the party in the zone with a view to mobilising and sensitizing the electorate at the grassroots for the success of the party.

Lalong charged the party Zonal leadership to carry everyone along and deliver all the party's candidates including the Presidential Candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima. 

On the level of consultations, mobilisation and engagement so far, the Governor informed the Zonal officials that the Presidential Campaign Council has continued to fine-tune the strategies that will ensure that members of the APC participate from the unit level to the national, rather than a situation where many prefer to look at the national level. 

He said already, the Presidential Campaign Council and has engaged the National Working Committee and also proposed clear roles for women and youths in the forthcoming campaigns. 

In his remarks, the APC North Central Zonal Chairman Alhaji Mu'azu Bawa Rijau said they were in the State to meet with party officials and stakeholders in line with the directive of the NWC for the Zonal leadership to embark on such tour to engage party faithful.

He congratulated the Governor over his appointment as Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council saying the entire zone was happy for the well deserved assignment which is clear evidence that the zone can deliver for not only the Presidential Candidate, but the party as a whole. 

He also thanked the Governor for his support during the party Primaries where the leadership of the zone emerged without any rancour. 

Rijau assured the Governor that they will work hard to reconcile all aggrieved persons within the zone in order to ensure that the party enters the elections as a strong and united force.
