The Rivers State Government has distanced the governor, Mr. Nyesom Wike from the campaign posters of the governor from the 2023 posters bearing his name and image.
The Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Paulinus Nsirim declared this in a statement released on Monday.
ElombahNews had earlier on Monday published that posters promoting Wike for president ahead of the 2023 general election emerged in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Some of the posters were seen at the Federal Secretariat on Monday and had the inscription, “Rescue Nigeria 2023 from insecurity, poverty, bandits, killing”.
Reacting to the posters, Mr. Nsirim, in a statement titled “Governor Wike not behind campaign posters“, said:
“The attention of Governor Nyesom Wike has been drawn to campaign posters bearing his name which flooded some major streets of Abuja today.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Wike has not informed anyone that he is interested in the Presidency of this country.
“This is certainly the handiwork of mischief makers who are threatened by the Governor’s rising political profile.
“We are amused that political detractors will stop at nothing to see how they can distract Governor Wike’s visionary leadership.
“For the umpteenth time, we wish to restate that Governor Wike is presently preoccupied with his mission to make Rivers State a better place and destination of choice.
“All the puerile antics of political jobbers aimed at heating up the polity will surely fail.”
Nsirim, therefore, advised members of the public to discountenance the misinformation that is currently circulating in Abuja and disregard the campaign posters.
