A former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has said that he knows nothing about the 2023 presidential campaign posters that surfaced in Abuja recently.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the posters seen in different parts of Abuja had Charles Soludo as Atiku’s running mate.
In a statement issued by Paul Ibe, the media adviser to the 2019 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku said he is currently working on solutions to the myriad of challenges facing the country.
Ibe stated that it is silly for someone to link Atiku who is a member of the PDP to Soludo who is currently aspiring for the governorship seat in Anambra State under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
He asked the general public to ignore the posters that he described as the handowrk of mischief makers.
The statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to reports in a section of the media of campaign posters of His Excellency Atiku Abubakar and Prof. Charles Soludo, an aspirant in the Anambra State governorship election in parts of Abuja.
“Ordinarily, we would have ignored the reports, but for the interest of those who may be misled by the disingenuous plot.
“We know nothing about the posters or those who may have promoted it.
“It is obvious that this is a work of mischief. For the avoidance of doubt, Atiku Abubakar is of the Peoples Democratic Party, while Charles Soludo is of the All Progressive Grand Alliance APGA. It is silly of anyone to attempt to drag the former Vice President into an election in Anambra which outcome will be determined by the people of the state.
“Atiku Abubakar is presently preoccupied with joining hands with other well-meaning Nigerians to help in finding solutions to the myriad of challenges plaguing our nation such as insecurity and economic downturn marked by joblessness and extreme poverty.
“That explains why last Monday, the Waziri of Adamawa commissioned the headquarters of Standard Micro Finance Bank and two manufacturing plants, promoted by him in Yola to provide much-needed jobs and opportunities.
“We wish to restate that the purported 2023 campaign posters in circulation linking Atiku to Soludo is the handiwork of mischief makers and should be ignored.”
