Wase praised Lalong’s selection and claimed that he was the most qualified and suitable person to run the APC presidential candidate’s campaign in a statement released by his chief press secretary, Umar Muhammad Puma.
He described Lalong as “detribalised, very resourceful, ingenious and practical politician, an adept listener and a leader with the right attitude to grind out results where others cannot succeed.”
He said, “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.”
