There are strong indications that the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) may settle for the Plateau State Governor, Solomon Lalong, as running mate to its presidential candidate, Ahmed Tinubu, in the 2023 elections.
Lalong has been described as “a cool-headed politician who is not motivated by tribal or religious sentiments.”
Party Chieftain and convener of Northern Conscience for 2023 (NCF’2023), Dr Garus Gololo, in a chat on Saturday in Abuja, said that “Lalong is the first Governor in Plateau State to give a Muslim the chance at beginning the local government Chairman of Plateau North.
The party Chieftain also criticised moves in some quarters to pair the party’s flag bearer with the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, adding that “I am from Bauchi and I will not vote for Yakubu Dogara. We know the problems there. His local government had to be moved from Tafawa Balewa to Gununu.
They said that he’ll go for Babachir Lawal. Though the court gave him a clean bill of Health, the masses still believe that he has baggage on him. For this, they’ll not vote for him. So, let’s not waste our time.”
