NEMA DG dis­owns PDP posters

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From An­drew Agbese, Kaduna

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.
