The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Lagos State chapter says it has uncovered sinister plots hatched by the leadership of Action Congress Nigeria (ACN) to destabilise the party from Lagos end by flooding the state with posters depicting Vice President Namadi Sambo as a presidential aspirant for the 2015 poll.
In a statement issued by its publicity secretary, Mr Taofeek Gani in Lagos, the PDP said the posters would bear its imprints with the actual motive to cause disaffection amongst the state PDP members.
“The party thus debunks any knowledge of the Vice-President’s interest in the presidency in 2015 and asserts that the Lagos State PDP, at this time, is not campaigning for the Vice-President nor any other person.
“The party consequently warns that security agents have been put on the alert and any person seen pasting such posters in the state shall face the consequences of his action.
“We are aware of a small group being sponsored by ACN leaders to cause disaffection within Lagos State PDP.
“This group has held at least three meetings, shuttling between Osogbo and Lagos. Their plan is to print campaign posters presenting Sambo as a presidential aspirant. They plan to print the posters in Ibadan. It shall bear the signature of Lagos State PDP and shall be pasted in strategic places of Lagos State. This shall be done to portray Lagos State PDP as being behind the campaign,” the party alleged.
