The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has dissociated himself from campaign poster that was seen in Abuja and its environs.
Fresh posters of Atiku had been sighted in certain streets of Abuja.
The posters bearing “Pukka,” a Hindi word which literally means “Genuine,” emerged after a report on how Atiku allegedly enlisted the assistance of two cerebral lawyers in Washington DC, United States of America to lobby the American government for recognition as the winner of the last presidential election.
Many of the posters were seen in the Central Business District within the Abuja city center.
In a statement however Atiku’s Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, dissociated his principal from the posters, adding that Atiku is focused on retrieving his stolen mandate.
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.”
