The Director-General of All Progressive Congress, Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Gov. Simon Lalong, has welcomed the introduction of members of Kannywood into the council.
Lalong, who is also the governor of Plateau, announced the approval in a statement issued by his Spokesperson, Dr Makut Macham, on Tuesday in Jos.
He said that their inclusion was part of efforts at deepening the participation of creative artistes from the northern zone in the campaign.
The Director-General said that the approval was the outcome of the recent visit of the APC presidential candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu to Kano, where he met members of the group.
He said that Tinubu had promised to ensure that Kannywood members were given the opportunity to be part of the campaigns to showcase their talents, while also helping the party to win the forthcoming general elections.
Lalong tasked the group to mobilise and enlighten their large followership on Tinubu’s ‘Renewed Hope’ message and his manifestoes to enhance his massive voting in the forthcoming elections.
