Parts of Abuja have been flooded with campaign posters of Governor Nyesom Wike for the 2023 Presidency.
But on Monday the Rivers State Government denied responsibility for the act.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Wike has not informed anyone that he is interested in the Presidency of this country,” the Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, said in a statement.

Mr Nsirim said the publication is the handiwork of mischief makers who are threatened by the governor’s rising political profile and are determined to distract his visionary leadership and heat up the polity.
The statement added that Wike is currently preoccupied with his mission to make Rivers State a better place while urging the public to discountenance the misinformation.

GOVERNOR WIKE NOT BEHIND CAMPAIGN POSTERS
The attention of Governor Nyesom Wike has been drawn to campaign posters bearing his name which flooded some major streets of Abuja today.
For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Wike has not informed anyone that he is interested in the Presidency of this country.
This is certainly the handiwork of mischief makers who are threatened by the Governor’s rising political profile.
We are amused that political detractors will stop at nothing to see how they can distract Governor Wike’s visionary leadership.
For the umpteenth time, we wish to restate that Governor Wike is presently preoccupied with his mission to make Rivers State a better place and Destination of Choice.
All the puerile antics of political jobbers aimed at heating up the polity will surely fail.
Members of the public are therefore advised to discountenance the misinformation that is currently circulating in Abuja.
