Governor Simon Lalong, the Director-general of APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), has approved the inclusion of Kannywood actors into the council.
Lalong, who is also the governor of Plateau State, 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 campaigns.
The director-general said that the approval was the outcome of the recent visit of the APC presidential candidate Bola Tinubu to Kano, where he met members of the group.
He said that Tinubu had promised to ensure that Kannywood actors were given the opportunity to be part of the campaign 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 manifesto to enhance his massive voting in the forthcoming elections.
According to the statement, the Kannywood group has Abdul-Mahmud Amart as director, Ismail Afakallah as deputy director and Sani Mu’azu as secretary, with other leaders heading different divisions.
