The All Progressives Congress (APC) has appointed the Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, as Director-General of Bola Tinubu’s presidential campaign.
This information was disclosed by the APC national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, to newsmen today in Abuja shortly after meeting President Buhari at the presidential Villa.
The plateau-born politician, who is a Northern Christian, was unveiled amid controversy surrounding the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the ruling party.
Adamu equally unveiled a former Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, as the interim spokesperson of the Campaign Organisation, while the deputy spokesperson is Barr Hanatu Musa Musa.
According to him, the meeting with the president was to brief him and get his approval on the party’s plans regarding the campaign outfits and organogram.
Meanwhile, earlier today, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar designated former lawmaker, Dino Melaye, and Dr. Daniel Bwala to serve as his spokespersons for the 2023 presidential campaign.
