Niger governor, Bello, distances self from 2023 campaign posters

By Priscilla Cambell,

Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, has distanced himself from poster circulating in the social media platform allegedly campaigning for 2023 as vice president.
Bello stated, "This is not time to talk about 2023 knowing very well that we just came out of elections and are yearning to fulfil promises made to the people."
The governor through his Chief Press Secretary, Mrs. Mary Noel Berje, said that it was not the time to talk about 2023.
He explained that there was no basis or justification for such posters, saying that it is the handiwork of mischief makers trying to distract government's attention from discharging its mandate to the citizens.
"Our priority is to support Federal and State Government policies and programmes and to fulfil their campaign promises as the tenure is just beginning," he said.
He described the posters as well as their authors as FAKE and UNPATRIOTIC, insisting that he is fully focused to work for the people.
The governor said that he remained loyal to the ruling party and the federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He appealed to the people of Niger State and the public to disregard those posters, describing them as the handiwork of mischief makers who always take delight in heating up the polity for their selfish interests.
