The Peoples Democratic Party has said it will not sanction President Goodluck Jonathan over the printing and pasting of posters announcing his ambition to seek re-election in 2015.

The party said it was satisfied that the President had denied responsibility for the printing and pasting of the posters.

This was disclosed by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, who warned members of the party not to see the development as an opportunity to engage in the printing and pasting of posters of other presidential aspirants.

He said, 'You know the President has said he did not authorise the printing and pasting of the posters. Because of this, we will not sanction him.

'The National Chairman of the party, Dr. Bamanga Tukur has directed all elected officials of the party to remain focused and to concentrate on the delivery of good services to the people.

'We will not encourage other politicians, who are interested in elective offices to start printing and pasting of posters.

'The time for that has not come. When it comes, we will inform our members.'
