Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong has inaugurated a 40-man Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the kick-off of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaigns scheduled to hold in Jos, the state capital.
At the inauguration the committee, the governor expressed optimistic that the ruling party would be victorious to retain power in the state.
The LOC is headed by House of Representatives Deputy Speaker Idris Wase.
The committee’s terms of reference include to plan, organise and execute a successful APC Presidential Campaign, ensure the safety and successful stay of President Muhammadu Buhari; the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima; members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC); visiting governors; members of the National Assembly; members of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC); all other dignitaries and any other arrangements that would lead to a successful, hitch-free and seamless campaign launch in Jos.
Lalong said Plateau State is not new to hosting such a big event since it has an excellent record of hosting presidential campaigns and party primaries that produced Presidents of Nigeria and other eminent leaders.
According to him, the flag-off of the APC Presidential Campaign is holding under his watch as the Director General of the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Council.
The governor said it was a great privilege and a golden opportunity for him to demonstrate that Plateau is a dominant force in APC.
He said he state would set the pace towards the victory of the APC presidential candidate and others.
“You have, therefore, been drafted into this Local Organising Committee to ensure that the groundwork is laid for the successful hosting of this very important event.
“Your selection is based on your capacity, loyalty, track record of service to the party and commitment to the success of the Rescue Administration,” Lalong said.
He added: “I have no doubt that you are going to put in your best to ensure that we show the APC that the choice of Plateau State as the flag-off venue and the appointment of the governor as DG of the Presidential Campaign Council is not a mistake.
“Bear in mind the fact that other states had lobbied to host this flag-off but the responsibility was eventually given to us because of our love for the party and track record. God willing, the victory of the APC to retain power will be sealed during the flag-off.”
Lalong urged the committee members to ensure that they have a colourful, safe, secure, and memorable flag-off.
