“Our State is not new to hosting this kind of event and indeed has a very excellent record of hosting Presidential Campaigns and party primaries that produced Presidents of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and other eminent leaders. However, this is the first time that we are hosting such an event under the All Progressives Congress which makes it even more historic.
“As if that is not enough, this flag off of the APC Presidential Campaign is holding under my watch as the Director General of the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Council. It is a great privilege and a golden opportunity for us to demonstrate that Plateau is a dominant force in APC and will set the pace towards the victory of our Presidential Candidate and others.”

Bear in mind the fact that other States had lobbied to host this flag-off but the responsibility was eventually given to us because of our love for the party and track record. God willing, the victory of the APC to retain power will be sealed during the flag-off.”

Abdullahi Adamu; Presidential Candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima; all APC Governors; National Assembly members as well as other distinguished leaders of our party from all over the country.”
