APC Fingers PDP Over 2023 Campaign Posters

LAGOS SEPTEMBER 27TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The All Progressives Congress has accused the opposition Peoples Democratic Party of being the brains behind the recent 2023 campaign posters of some chieftains of the ruling party.
The APC dissociated itself and the members whose names and pictures appeared in the posters, saying the PDP circulated them to achieve a devilish aim.

Those whose posters for 2023 Presidential campaign were seen were the APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu; the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and the Kaduna State Governor, Nasiru El-Rufai.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Thursday, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said APC members were focused on governance and delivery on the party’s mandate instead of issues around 2023 elections.
He said, “As a party, we want to state clearly that having won elections convincingly and having been given the mandate to run the government for the next four years, our major and only focus now is governance.
“We are not engaging in any other activity relating to 2023 elections and wherever you see such (posters) you can be sure it is from mischief-makers and of course we know it is part of the strategy of the PDP to continue to take actions to cause distractions for the governing party from focusing on anything that is important to the people of Nigeria which is to deal with the challenges that we are all faced with. The challenges of governance, security, economy and corruption as well as other associated issues. That is what we are focused on.
“So, as a party, we understand the social contract we have signed with the people of Nigeria with the renewal of our mandate. Whatever poster you might have seen about any of our leaders anywhere in this country is irrelevant to us, we do not have a hand in it and it is not from those leaders.
“It is strictly part of the strategy of a party that is supposed to provide an alternative to our governance model and since they do not have such, the only thing they can do is to continue to throw spanners into the works. So, we urge all our members to focus on what is important to us and so we dissociate ourselves and our leaders from such issues that have to do with elections. Elections have been done and dusted and what we are now faced with is the issue of governance.”
