Obanikoro: My campaign posters are fake, cheap, miscalculated

LAGOS — FORMER Nigeria’s high Commissioner to Ghana, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, Monday, described as cheap and miscalculated, some fake campaign posters that flooded certain parts of Lagos State, weekend, purportedly presenting him as running for the governorship of the state in 2015.

Obanikoro, who is out of the country at the moment, said whatever the motive behind the move was, had failed ab initio, because the strategy was old-fashioned, the timing ill-advised and the intention stymied as it were.

He said the fake posters were intended to either to  “present him as desperate or a politician of uncompromising tendencies,” noting that both intentions had failed because they could neither push him out in the ring nor stifle him.

According to him, “Honestly, this has not come to me as a surprise because I understand the terrain in which I operate. But I would have thought that even if those who relish in destructive politics still admire the trade, they could have at least, gone a notch up in their game.
