There is a bit of controversy as fresh posters of the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, with the inscriptions: ‘The real and the right’ yesterday surfaced in the streets of Abuja.
The posters, which also bore ‘Pukka’ a Hindi word, which literally means ‘Genuine’ emerged after a report on how Atiku paid the sum of $30,000 to a foreign law firm in Washington DC, the United States of America, to lobby the American government to recognize him as the ‘authentic’ winner of the presidential election.
Many of the posters, which were seen in the Central Business District within the Abuja city centre, have caused a bit of controversy online among Nigerians.
Recall that Lauretta Onochie, the presidential aide on social media, had said she returned to Abuja on Tuesday to see Atiku’s photographs with weird treasonable inscriptions.
She warned the PDP presidential candidate to pursue his election petition at the Tribunal rather than involve himself in any “mischief” that could land him in jail for treason.
Daily Post report indicates that the posters were sponsored by an Adamawa-based political support group, the Atiku Deservation Movement.
