Atiku Abubakar has denied accusations of having anything to do with the campaign poster that was seen in Abuja and its environs.
NIGERIA NEWS had earlier reported the accusations laid by a special assistant to the Nigerian President and pictures of the posters have been circulating on social media ever since.
The posters, which also bore ‘Pukka’ a Hindi word which literally means ‘Genuine’ came to limelight after a report on how Atiku tried to lobby the United States of America by hiring two more than capable lawyers in Washington, DC to recognize him as the winner of the just concluded presidential elections.
Many of the posters were seen in the Central Business District within the Abuja city center.
Atiku reacting in a statement by Paul Ibe, his Media Adviser, dissociated himself from the posters, adding that he is more than focused on regaining his rightful position as Nigeria’s President.
The statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to posters of His Excellency Atiku Abubakar, Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 election being circulated in Abuja.
“We disassociate the former Vice President of Nigeria from the said posters in circulation.
“The campaign season is over. The tainted electoral victory by the incumbent is being challenged in court.
“We refuse to be distracted, which is exactly the objective of our opponents but to remain focused on diligently pursuing our election petition with a view to retrieving the stolen mandate.”
