The Director General of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong has said despite the fact that the ruling party was confident of victory because of its records of achievements and the growing acceptance it continues to enjoy across the country, it would not take anything to chance.
Lalong made this known on Friday in Abuja during the inauguration of PCC and the unveiling of the manifesto of the presidential candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
He stressed that Tinubu in conjunction with the party has developed a detailed Action Plan that clearly spells out his roadmap for taking Nigeria to greater heights and impacting the lives of the people.
The Director-General noted that they are in the season of politics where their opponents are desperate to confuse the electorate and bring the ruling party down.
His words: “Our campaigns will therefore be issue-based and devoid of propaganda or falsehood. We shall tell the electorate what our party has done and also remind them of the enviable records set by our Presidential Candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima during their previous assignments. They have demonstrated the capacity, experience, composure, exposure and acceptance to take Nigeria to greater heights from May 29th 2023.
“While others spend their valuable time addressing personalities and other frivolities, let us stay with the mission and vision of our candidate and the party, as encapsulated in the Action Plan. This singular focus will enable us deliver the dividends of democracy to Nigerians.”
Lalong also called on all party faithful to be committed to this mandate and remain focused on the goal of ensuring that APC retains power at the federal and State levels.
This, he said, would require a lot of sacrifices by members, while urging them to put aside personal or sectional interests and focus on the goal, which is to win the elections with an unprecedented wide margin in the history of elections in Nigeria.
The Director-General said the PCC was aware that the composition of the leadership and membership of the various Committees might not have satisfied the yearnings of everyone, however, it was important to emphasise that everything possible had been done to come up with a list that captures virtually every interest.
On his part, the National Chairman of the party, Senator Adamu Abdullahi said all opposition to the party in the forthcoming 2023 polls would be crushed by the ruling party
He said, “With the formal inauguration of the PCC, the party was set to crush all opposition on the way to its victory during the election next year.”
