Governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako, has accused his enemies of distributing and pasting posters announcing his 2015 ambition to contest for the 2015 presidential election in Nigeria.
Residents of Adamawa State woke up to find the presidential election campaign posters bearing the governor’s photograph displayed in major parts of the state capital. But the governor has dissociated himself from the posters, saying those bent on causing confusion actually conceptualised the idea and carried out the act. The posters were immediately removed as the governor raised concerns.
Nyako is known to be an ardent critic of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leadership as well as the President Goodluck Jonathan government. He, with four other of his colleagues, has been visiting prominent Nigerians over the misfortunes in the PDP. The governor’s Director of Press and Public Affairs, Ahmad Sajoh, in a statement, described the development was the handiwork of mischief makers.
“The attention of Adamawa State Government has been drawn to activities of some unscrupulous mischief makers who have printed posters of Gov. Murtala Nyako,” the release stated.
“These posters purporting to announce Gov. Nyako’s presidential ambition are false, malicious and the handiwork of demented minds bent on tarnishing the name and image of the governor. The posters were pasted to create further distraction from the governor’s focused and principled leadership.”
The governor called the perpetrators of the act enemies of the state, saying they had continued to malign him at every given opportunity since he assumed duty.
“Nyako is a courageous individual who will not hide under any faceless posters to announce his ambition to any office in the land,” he said, adding that those behind the posters were also planning to paste same in Abuja and Niger Delta states.
He said his government is aware that “these groups of mischief makers intend to paste these posters in Abuja and the Niger Delta in order to create disharmony between Gov. Nyako and President Goodluck Jonathan.
“Security agencies have been alerted to apprehend anyone responsible for such unwholesome activity. The governor remains resolute in discharging his mandate and no amount of mischief will derail his resolve to continue his service to the people of Adamawa.”
