Tambuwal, Ihedioha dissociate selves from campaign posters

Share This

By Umar Muhammad PumaTambuwal

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has distanced himself from the  posters donning various streets of Abuja purported to be promoting his alleged Presidential bid.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal thanked those who placed the posters for considering him fit for elective office, but advised them not to breach the laws of the land.

“While we thank them for deeming the Hon. Speaker fit for future elective office in the country, let it be known that since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has not given the go-ahead for those interested in elective positions to start mobilisation, it is inappropriate for any person or group to print campaign posters and have them placed in strategic locations in any part of the country.

“The laws of the Federation are meant to be obeyed by all persons, irrespective of their societal status. As a law-abiding citizen, the Honourable Speaker will make known the direction of his political future and intention at the appropriate time,” the statement added.

Similarly, Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, has also disassociate himself from campaign posters pasted in parts of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, purporting that he is running as vice presidential aspirant under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 elections.

He urged the general public to ignore the posters and see this incident as the handiwork of mischief makers who are advised to find better things to do with their time and resources.

The campaign posters of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal and his Deputy, Emeka Ihedioha as President and Vice Presidential aspirants were seen over the weekend at most of the major streets of Abuja.
