Though no one has claimed responsibility for pasting the campaign posters, a group reportedly told journalists that it has endorsed Osinbajo and Ganduje for the presidency.
According to Daily Trust, leaders of the alliance support group, Oluleke Mose and Bello Adamu Mohammed said the presidency of both politicians will lead to a united and better Nigeria.
The group said:
“We believe that if power rotates to the South, Osinbajo is best placed to unite, heal and inspire our great nation.”
“We also firmly believe that Ganduje’s antecedents as Governor of Kano make him the perfect Northern vice presidential candidate to Osinbajo; one who will advance and protect the interests of a Northern Nigeria plagued by poverty and insecurity.''
However, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Governor Ganduje have not formally indicated any interest in contesting in the presidential election come 2023.
