2019 Polls: Kwara governor disowns fake campaign posters

Date: 2019-02-07

Gov. Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara has disowned campaign posters circulating in parts of the state promoting him as the Kwara South Senatorial Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The governor spoke via a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Communications, Dr Muyideen Akorede.

Ahmed described the posters as fake since they were not approved, sanctioned or sponsored by him as he was no longer the PDP Kwara South Senatorial candidate.

He said that he stood by his earlier decision to concede the PDP Kwara South Senatorial ticket to the incumbent, Senator Rafiu Ibrahim, in the interest of equity and fairness.

Ahmed added that he subsequently formally withdrew from the Senatorial race in full compliance with the provisions and processes specified by the Electoral Act.

Ahmed said that on the basis of that decision, he had since campaigned for Senator Ibrahim and could, therefore, not have authorised the fake campaign posters.

He accused the opposition party, All Progressives Congress' candidate, of masterminding the circulation of the fake posters in an attempt to cause confusion.

He reiterated that the PDP was poised for victory at all levels in the forthcoming general elections.
