Denies Having Hands in Circulation of Presidential Posters

By Jude Atupulazi

The Vice Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019 election, Mr. Peter Obi, has denied having hands in his  posters being circulated, both offline and online, through different  social media platforms.

The release made available by his Media Office and signed by Mr. Valentine Obienyem, said the office had been lately inundated by calls seeking clarifications on Obi’s presidential posters being circulated through various media platforms. The release made it clear that Obi was not in any way connected to, nor contracted/authorised anybody or organisation to promote such on his behalf.

The release further noted that Obi was not the one to jump the gun on a matter the party was yet to give final directives. ‘As a faithful party man, he will abide by the final position of the party on the issue,’ the release stated.

However the release frowned on people’s preoccupation with the next election when the situation in the country called for all hands to be on deck towards the restoration of security, eradication of poverty, creation of jobs and provision of other productive ventures for the country’s teeming unemployed youths; as well as improving education and making health care accessible in the country.

‘These are precisely what Obi is concerned with right now,’ the release concluded.
