The residents of Abuja woke up on new years day to find posters of President Goodluck’s 2015 campaign posters pasted all around the city. The poster read:
‘2015: No Vacancy In Aso Rock, Lets Do More, One Good Term Deserves Another, Support Dr. Goodluck Azikiwe Jonathan For 2015 Presidency.’
However, yesterday 2md January 2013, the president, through his special adviser on media and publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, has denied any involvement with the campaign posters, saying saying those behind it were doing it of their own accord and did not act on behalf of the president.
According to Abati,
“those pasting the posters are trying to express their own view. The president had stated that he will talk about the presidency from 2014. Those doing these do not have the consent of the president. What is most important now is for the president to deliver on his electioneering promise to Nigerians and not to embark on the pasting of posters. This did not come from the president. Nigerians should take the president for his word and ignore any other information to the contrary”.
