According to report made available in social media platforms, it was said that the All Progressives Congress, APC and the presidential candidate of the party, Ahmed Bola Tinubu have appointed the governor of Plateau state as the party’ s campaign director ahead of the 2023 presidential election. Governor Lalong was said to have been chosen by the ruling party after Tinubu had refused to pick a Christian as his running mate.
However, the decision of the ruling party to pick Lalong as the campaign director didn’ t go well with some of the Christian groups from the northern part of the country. The group has called on Governor Lalong to reject the appointment with immediate effect.

It was said that some many people were not happy about Tinubu’ s decision to pick Shettima as his running mate. The christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has criticized the adoption of Muslim- muslim ticket by the ruling party ahead of the coming 2023 presidential election.
Governor Lalong was one of the people suggested to be picked as the running mate to Bola Tinubu before Shettima was suddenly picked. Lalong is a Christian and some people, mostly Christian from the north have said that if Lalong was not credible enough to be picked as running mate, why should he accept to become the party campaign DG of the APC?
