Jonathan disowns posters
By Ben Agande
Abuja – President Goodluck Jonathan, Wednesday, said he had no hand in the posters campaigning for his presidency in 2015 in Abuja, saying those who were behind it were only doing their own thing, and not acting as his agents.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati said the president is focused on delivering on his mandate for Nigerians and would not be distracted by the politics of 2015.
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.
According to him, “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”.
He said: “It has not come from the president. Nigerians should take the president for his word and ignore any other information to the contrary”.
