The media team of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections and former Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar has disowned posters being circulated by unknown elements in Abuja.
This was contained in a statement issued to journalists on Wednesday, April 10, by Atiku’s Media Adviser, Mazi Paul Ibe.
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.”
