Campaign Posters: Orchestrated Plot To Disparage Nyesom Wike Uncovered
The office of the Minister of State for Education, Barr Nyesom Wike says it has uncovered campaign posters in circulation with the photograph of the Hon Minister purporting his declaration for the 2015 Governorship election for Rivers State.
A statement signed by the Special Assistant on Media to the Minister, Simeon Nwakaudu said this is an orchestrated plot by the minister's political opponents and hired mercenaries to disparage Hon (Chief) Nyesom Wike.
The statement described those behind the circulation of such posters as bad losers because the Rivers people and indeed, all Nigerians are better informed and too knowledgeable to be deceived by such fluke, stressing that the action has no other motive than to present the Honourable Minister of State for Education as an over-ambitious politician.
While urging the members of the public to disregard these posters wherever they are being circulated, the statement noted that they have nothing to do with the Honourable Minister, who could not have indulged in any act aimed at flouting the ban on 2015 political campaign, INEC, and is in a better position to know than his avowed enemies.
The statement warned these plotters to desist from the cheap blackmail aimed at over-heating the polity, reassuring that the Honourable Minister, Barr Wike is too committed to the success of the Transformation Agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan to indulge in frivolities.
