Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has disassociated himself from campaign posters advertising his 2023 Vice-Presidential ambition.
Campaign posters of El-Rufai as running mate to Chibuike Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation, had surfaced last week.
The messages on the posters read: “The People’s choice,” “Today may not be the best, but tomorrow will be better”.
Reacting, El-Rufai told Correspondents of the State House after meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Friday at the Presidential Villa that he had no knowledge of the posters and neither did he know those behind it.
He also said Amaechi had since denied knowledge of those printing and pasting the posters.
“I don’t know who is printing those posters, wasting his or her money printing posters. I heard about them. I called Minister, Amaechi, and asked him whether he knew anything about them; he said he didn’t know.
“I think we need to trace who is doing it and ask that person. I am governor of Kaduna State; I have job to do. I haven’t delivered on the promises I made to the people of Kaduna State. Until I do that I don’t want to discuss anything.”
When asked if he had been approached by people for the 2023 presidential race, he said, “I am in politics. People will approach you, but whether they are genuine or not is another matter and whether you are interested or not is another matter.”
