An All Progressives Congress group, called (Strategic monitoring team) for Bola Tinubu has said they are in total support of governor Simon Lalong to serve as the campaign Director General of the presidential candidate of the APC.

State coordinator of the group Golepji Wambutda  who addressed journalists at a press conference  in Jos , said Lalong remains the perfect fit for the position.

It will be recalled that the  APC national leadership recently picked the governor to lead the party’s 2023 presidential campaign programme.

“We salute and support the decision of our party the All  Progressives   Congress and the flag bearer  Bola Ahmed Tinubu  the former Governor of Lagos state in appointing our Governor  to serve as the  campaign Director General of the Tinubu / Shettima organisation.”

He said that “We are in a critical moment of our political journey as a Country, State and people hence the dire need to contribute to the political discourse with the sole purpose of adding flesh to a framework that has from time immemorial served as the cornerstone of democracy.”

Golepji added that the APC Strategic Monitoring Team (APC-SMT) is a group of progressives across the 17 LGA of Plateau state that have come together to foster and drive through the tenets of progressives across the length and breadth of the State.

Though a political group, we are devoid of excessive partisanship as we place a high premium on national interest, and the principles of justice.  Our core value is to see to the promotion of germaine and pertinent principles that add to the advancement of our people in all ramifications.”

He stressed that “the recent nominations of Presidential candidates by political parties most especially our party the APC has come and gone.  “Although the recent nomination of running mates for the Presidential flag bearers across all political parties has brought Religion to the fore of our political discuss, The most prevalent concern among Christians over the Muslim Muslim ticket is not one to wish away by a wave of the hand.”

The group added that ” We are mindful of the genuine concerns being expressed by all well-meaning Nigerians ”

“However, we must realize that our challenges as a people go beyond religious considerations. No wonder other political parties have been allowed to escape from giving account for the departure from rotation which by our history has been the most legitimate standard for power sharing.”
