Re: Posters With My Image and the Image of the candidates of Other Parties

My attention has been drawn to the fact that there are a number of posters in circulation with my image and their text and the images of the candidates of other political parties. I will want to state clearly that I did not authorise the production, and circulation of such posters. Neither did those posters emanate from my campaign team.

Nigeria practises a democracy and at different political cycles, electorates oftentimes decide their voting patterns. It is not within my powers or in fact the powers of anyone to force people to show their support however they wish, as long as such support does not break the law. Which is why even though the said posters do not have my support, I also cannot forcefully take them down.

I and my campaign team will continue to be faithful party men and will never engage in anti-party activities.
