Going further, Atiku insisted that he would not be distracted from retrieving his stolen mandate.
"Our attention has been drawn to posters of His Excellency Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election being circulated in Abuja.
"We disassociate the former vice president of Nigeria from the said posters in circulation. The campaign season is over. The tainted electoral victory by the incumbent is being challenged in court.
