Former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi has distanced himself from a campaign poster of him ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
In a tweet on Saturday evening, the businessman-cum-politician said that he had no hand in the circulation of the poster.
The Herald can report that the campaign poster circulating on social media showed Obi as presidential candidate and former Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso as his running mate.
The poster was shown to have been sponsored by a group known as the Equity Group led by one Nonso Jonathan.
In a terse tweet accompanied by the said poster, Obi wrote, “I am not a part of the poster being circulated.”
The candidate and his supposed running mate were shown as contesting on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the same party on whose platform Obi was vice president candidate in 2019.
In that election, he was running mate to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
