The Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, has dissociated himself, from posters in parts of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, portraying him as a vice-presidential aspirant on the platform the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015.
The posters which surfaced in strategic locations in Abuja, suggested Ihedioha as a running mate to Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, who has also distanced himself from the campaign posters.
The deputy speaker, who represented the Senate President, David Mark, at the grand finale of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship campaign rally in Osogbo, Osun State on Saturday, said that he remained a member of the PDP and asked the public to ignore the posters.
Speaking through his Press Sceretary, Mr. Oke Opia yesterday, Mr. Ihedioha said the pasting of the posters was the handiwork of mischief makers.
“The deputy speaker is fully focused on, and committed to rebuilding the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nationally and in Imo State where he has remained a bulwark of the ruling party since the opposition took over the reins of government at that level in 2011”, Opia said.
