The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase, has described as the right decision the appointment of Governor Simon Lalong as the Director-General of the Presidential Campaign Organisation of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu.
Wase, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Umar Muhammad Puma, hailed the choice of Governor Lalong saying he is most competent and fit to lead the campaign of the APC presidential candidate.
He described Lalong as “detribalised, resourceful, ingenious and practical politician, and an adept listener and a leader with the right attitude to grind out results where others cannot succeed.”
“I wish to heartily congratulate my leader and governor, the Executive Governor of Plateau state, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Simon Lalong on his well-deserved appointment and unveiling as the Director General of the Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s Presidential Campaign.
“There could not have been a better choice than this. Governor Lalong has over the years proven beyond reasonable doubts that he is a unifier, a strategist, a mobiliser, a team-player, and a leader per excellence. In his almost eight years as governor of Plateau state.
“His mettle and as chairman of the Northern Governor’s Forum, his footprints are indelible. I am very confident that as Director General, he will replicate his enviable records and lead the campaign from the front and ultimately lead the party to victory.
“Your Excellency, I wish you God’s guidance and resounding success in this onerous but surmountable assignment. My constituents and people of Plateau are indeed proud of you and would give you the needed support to deliver.
“With Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Shettima on the ballot and Lalong in the driving seat, the APC is on the right path to victory come February 2023.”
He thanked the presidential candidate and the national chairman of the party for the confidence reposed in the Plateau governor to lead his campaign saying “A good product needs a great strategist to deliver.”
