Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 general elections, has dissociated himself from controversial campaign posters flooding the streets of Abuja.
The posters which carry his face bore ‘Pukka’ a Hindi word which literally means ‘Genuine’.
The posters emerged after reports allegedly say the former vice president enlisted the assistance of two cerebral lawyers in Washington DC, United States of America, to lobby the American government for recognition as the winner of the last presidential election.
Reacting to the posters, Atiku’s media aide Paul Ibe in a statement said:
“Our attention has been drawn to posters of His Excellency Atiku Abubakar, Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 election being circulated in Abuja.
“We disassociate the former Vice President of Nigeria from the said posters in circulation.
“The campaign season is over. The tainted electoral victory by the incumbent is being challenged in court.
“We refuse to be distracted, which is exactly the objective of our opponents but to remain focused on diligently pursuing our election petition with a view to retrieving the stolen mandate.”
