Posters bearing ‘Bukola Saraki for President in 2023’ have been sighted at different parts of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
Saraki, a former Kwara Governor, is a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Saraki came third behind Sokoto state governor, Aminu Tambuwal, and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar (the eventual winner) in the 2018 presidential primary election of the PDP in Port Harcourt.
That election featured heavyweight politicians including former Kano state governor, Rabiu Kwakwanso, ex-President of the Senate, David Mark, former Sokoto State governor, Atthiru Bafarawa, amongst others.
At the federal secretariat and Wadata Plaza, headquarters of PDP, Saraki is seen smiling in a picture from campaign posters with the inscription: “Reset Nigeria 2023: Vote Abubakar Bukola Saraki as President”.
However, Saraki, through his media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu, disowned the posters, saying “We do not know anything about the posters, we are ignoring it”.
