NEMA DG disowns PDP posters
The Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Alhaji Muhammadu Sani Sidi, has disowned a goodwill message issued in his name which portrayed him as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Posters of the DG with the logo of the PDP conveying goodwill messages on the Eidel-Fitr celebration were pasted in parts of Kaduna.
The NEMA DG said in a statement, yesterday, that the posters are the handiwork of mischief makers, who he said were bent on creating confusion in Kaduna and beyond.
He said, “For the avoidance of doubt, I did not solicit nor sponsor any such messages to be printed and pasted around Kaduna metropolis and other towns in Kaduna State. I am not aware and equally not in any way connected to the purported goodwill message.
“I consider the posters as a ‘Greek Gift’ from those bent on creating disaffection within the polity, with the aim of achieving their selfish political motives. At no time did I sponsor or ask anyone to on my behalf, directly or indirectly; design, print and circulate the said posters.”
Sidi said he is currently committed towards discharging his duties as Director General of NEMA in support of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
