Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau State may have unknowingly planted his own enemies in various locations ahead of the February 2018 local government polls in the state.

The governor had appointed over 100 Special Assistants, at least ten from each LGA allegedly to work for the success of the APC during the polls.

He equally appointed interim LG Chairmen, Secretaries and Councillors from each ward in the state for the same purpose according to reports.

Rumours however have it that many of those recruited for such functions are not APC loyalists.

A source in the opposition PDP said three of his friends and die-hard supporters of the opposition were among the appointed councillors.

"They accepted the calling to get information and also eat food, simple," he said.

Another source said among the earlier appointed SAs, two of his relations who are sworn members of the opposition were appointed.

They however camouflage as APC members while secretly supplying information to the opposition.

The revelation has however raised fears that the APC might not succeed in the forthcoming elections at the grassroots.

The party however has assured that it is confident in its victory, given its track record of achievements which have earned it the support and admiration of many both within and outside the party.
