There is a viral case via online entertainment that the spiritual head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, has requested Governor Simon Lalong to dismiss campaign director-general post given to him by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The report is coming at a time when a group known as the Concerned Christians on the Plateau (CCP) has called on Governor Lalong to reject the juicy APC appointment, The Nation reports.
The group had stated that it will not support the Plateau governor in his presidential campaign assignment if he continues with it.
However, the governor has denied the claim that Pope gave a negative order on his new appointment and even stated that he never at any time lobbied for the post.
Lalong made this clarification when he spoke with State House Correspondents after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
