Solomon Lalong, governor of Plateau state has been appointed as the director-general (DG) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council for the 2023 general elections.

APC national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, disclosed the development on Thursday.

Speaking with journalists after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Adamu said the Plateau governor is the DG of the party’s presidential campaign council.

According to the APC chair, the choice of Lalong is based on his capacity to deliver.

He also said Festus Keyamo, minister of state for labour and employment, would serve as “interim spokesperson” for the APC presidential campaign council.

On Tuesday, Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, declared that someone had been picked for the position, but consultations were ongoing for other positions.

“We have briefed the candidate and his running mate and inputs have been taken and our hope is that in the shortest possible time, the candidate will consult more with the party leadership and brief Mr President and get his input, and then we will formally unveil the presidential campaign council,” the Kaduna governor said.

“A decision has been taken on the director-general, but other positions in the campaign council are still being discussed. The president and the national chairman and national working committee will be briefed before a formal announcement.”

Lalong’s appointment might be a plan of the ruling party to compensate the Christians in the APC for their strong criticisms against the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the party for the 2023 presidential election.
