As a Catholic, I’m proud to lead APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket - Gov Lalong

Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong

Plateau state governor, Simon Lalong, has said that he is proud to lead the Muslim-Muslim ticket campaign of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Lalong made this known while fielding questions from State House reporters after a closed-door with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, August 10.

He noted that as a Catholic the Pope has not told him that it is wrong for him to lead the Muslim-Muslim presidential campaign team.

According Lalong, shortly after his appointment as APC campaign DG, the Plateau State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) were present at the Yakubu Gowon Airport, Jos, to welcome him.

He questioned why some Christians are opposed to his appointment. Adding that, the selection was strictly a party affair and had nothing to do with religion.
