We know nothing about Lamido-Amaechi posters, says Aliyu

By The Citizen


The Niger State Governor, Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu, has denied that his administration had anything to do with the presidential campaign posters of two serving governors in the country,
The campaign postersĀ  have flooded parts of Minna, the state capital.

According to Aliyu who made this known in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Danladi Ndayebo, in Minna Monday, he distanced himself from the campaign posters.

The campaign posters of Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State as presidential candidate and Governor Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State as his running mate surfaced on some public buildings in Minna on Sunday with the state government insisting that it had nothing to do with it.

Aliyu said neither he nor the state government was serving as campaign agents for the two serving governors.

Describing the posters in the state as the handiwork of political jobbers, the governor advised members of the public not to link the posters to him or any of his officials.

'’Those who pasted the posters are neither agents of the state government nor that of the governor, they also do not have the sympathy of government or any of its officials,'’ the statement insisted.

Ndayebo said the state government would continue to respect the decision of the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which had placed a ban on all forms of campaign ahead of the 2015 general election.

It therefore urged the public to disregard any attempt to link the state government and Aliyu to the campaign posters
