Governor Aliyu disassociates self from Buhari’s poster

Governor Muazu Babangida Aliyu of Niger state

Governor Babangida Aliyu of Niger State on Sunday disassociated himself from the poster circulating on social media linking him with the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari.

In a statement, Mr. Aliyu’s Chief Press Secretary, Ebije Israel, stated that the poster, which depicted Messrs Aliyu and Buhari together, were fake.

He attributed it to the antics of desperate politicians, who are out to mislead the electorate and cause friction in the state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.

The poster trending on the social media has the picture of Mr. Aliyu, as PDP senatorial candidate together with Mr. Buhari, the APC presidential candidate.

“It is indeed disturbing and very embarrassing to see campaign poster carrying the picture of Gov. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu and Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

“It is very clear that those behind the act of shame have gone beyond desperation as they are attempting to force a link between the Governor and the All Progressive Congress (APC).

“The Niger State Governor has categorically condemned the move, and he is calling on supporters of the PDP to remain focused, and vote overwhelmingly for the PDP during the general elections,” it stated.

    Thank goodness the picture is a fake.I would have been greatly disappointed if Buhari were to be associated with this guy who,in my humble opinion,is a failure in all ramifications.I want to believe that those behind the picture are desperately trying to smear Buhari.

      You are a disgrace to your parents bcos it is never part of the Northern culture to insult elders. I am sure you aren’t a pure breeded Hausa person but using a pseudo name.

          I believe in his opinion that makes him ‘a pure breeded Hausa’ to quote from his earlier response.

        You are part of the problem we have in the north, and it is your useless attitude and fake culture that has made past northern leaders to always reap of their followers in the name of leadership. When your leaders are liars, thieves, and sycophants, what is worse crime than that? They are even lucky if they are merely insulted. In a sane society Babangida Aliyu, Sule Lamido and others known for embezzling Govt. Coffers should have been serving life sentence. They deserve no honour. Shameless leaders. Mind you, i am more northerner than you think you are and their time is up. They cannot escape justice. Your response shows your life is enslaved and hopeless. You can continue going to them to collect crumbs.

    APC people have excellent forgers, they can forge very good certificates for their leader, Imam Buhari.

    Let them do this maza maza and close this certificate saga.

    The Rouble-Rouser and loud mouth governor is here again. Associate with GMB or not will NEVER make you a senator came February 2015, only and only if by the power of rigging. I,m sure this time around the voters will protect there votes by all means.

    The Opolo eyed-man is at it again. This is the man that said he has the agreement signed by GEJ that he GEJ would not run the presidency this year. He could not produce the signed paper at taking the a bribe from GEJ. Nigerlite should not allow him to impose a candidate on them.
