Director-General of APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Gov. Simon Lalong, has inaugurated a 40-man Local Organising Committee (LOC), ahead of the flag-off of its presidential campaign in Jos.
Lalong, who inaugurated the committee on Sunday 6th November in Jos, said it was part of preparations toward ensuring the success of the event slated for November 15.
He urged members of the committee to ensure a hitch-free event, adding that it would create an opportunity for Plateau to revive its strategic place in Nigeria’s political history.
Lalong, who is the governor of Plateau, said that members of the committee were carefully selected based on their pedigree, loyalty, track record of service to the party, and capacity to discharge their duties diligently.
“Do everything possible to ensure that we have a very colorful, safe, secure, and memorable campaign flag-off,” he said.
He also enjoined them to ensure that supporters from local government areas were mobilized to the event, adding that such a move would show that Plateau was an APC state.
”We must prove to our guests, the leadership of our party, and indeed, Nigerians that APC is fully on ground in Plateau.
”Your terms of reference are to plan, organize and execute a successful APC presidential campaign.
“To avoid a hasty job, all sub-committees that will be formed should work round the clock, as time is of the essence.
“You liaise with the PCC toward ensuring a successful exercise,” he said.
The governor added that the committee should make any other arrangement that would ensure a successful event.
