Plateau State Governor Simon Bako Lalong and the Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council have inaugurated a 40-man Local Organising Committee (LOC) to make proper arrangements for the successful hosting of the event.

The spokesperson to the governor, Dr. Makut Simon Macham in a statement on Sunday said while inaugurating the Committee headed by the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt. Hon. Idris Wase in Jos, Lalong said Plateau State is not new to hosting this kind of event and indeed has a very excellent record of hosting Presidential Campaigns and party primaries that produced Presidents of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and other eminent leaders.

Lalong said because this is the first time APC is hosting such an event, the Committee is expected to put in everything possible to make the event successful and historic.

He said: “This flag off of the APC Presidential Campaign is holding under my watch as the Director General of the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Council. It is a great privilege and a golden opportunity for us to demonstrate that Plateau is a dominant force in APC and will set the pace toward the victory of our 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.”

The Governor said he had no doubt that with the caliber of persons in the Committee, they are going to put in their best to ensure that the State shows 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.

“I charge you to do everything possible to ensure that we have a very colorful, safe, secure, and memorable flag off.

“We are expecting high caliber guests starting from PCC Chairman His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR; our National Chairman Sen. Abdullahi Adamu; Presidential Candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima; all APC Governors; National Assembly members as well as other distinguished leaders of our party from all over the country,” he said.

He also tasked them to ensure that supporters are mobilized from all the 17 Local Governments to welcome guests with the highest form of hospitality, culture, and other attractions and demonstrate to the Presidential Candidate that APC is rooted in Plateau State and his victory is guaranteed as well as that of gubernatorial candidates and other contestants.

Responding on behalf of the Committee members, Chairman and Deputy Speaker House of Representatives Idris Wase said they will hit the ground running to ensure that the assignment is carried out effectively.

He said Plateau is the home of APC and this will be demonstrated during the flag-off, assuring that the committee will not disappoint the Governor, the party, and the people of the State.
