Nyako Distances Self From 2015 Presidential Campaign Posters

murtala nyakoGov. Murtala Nyako of Adamawa has disassociated himself from campaign posters across the state announcing his presidential ambition come 2015.

A statement signed by his Director Press and Public Affairs, Malam Ahmad Sajoh, said 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.

“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 statement said.

It added that it was also “to create further distraction from his focused and principled leadership”.

It said it was unfortunate that some enemies of the state had continued to malign the governor at any given opportunity since he assumed duty.

The statement noted that “Nyako is a courageous individual who will not hide under any faceless posters to announce his ambition to any office in the land.”

The statement also said that those behind the posters were also planning to paste same in Abuja and Niger Delta states.

“We are also 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”, the statement said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the said posters have been removed. (NAN)
