Abuja - Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, yet again denied he had any ambitions to contest the presidential elections in 2015 after campaign posters were spotted around the state.
The posters stated he had entered the race to succeed President Goodluck Jonathan.
Amaechi accussed "faceless powerful persons" of engaging people to print posters bearing his image and pasting them in some parts of the country.
“Those responsible for the posters are doing it out of mischief. I did not send anyone to print my posters.
"Those behind the scheme are out to tarnish my image before other governors,” said Amaechi, whose election as head of the National Governors Forum (NGF) was against the wished of the ruling People's Democratic Party and the Presidency.
“Their intention was that because of the posters, my fellow governors would not vote for me during the NGF election, thinking that I have an ambition which I want to use the chairmanship to achieve.
"But because the governors know there is no such ambition, they did not bother as they still voted for me. But you may need to know that I do not have such an ambition in the first place,” he insisted.
Amaechi has since been suspended from the party following the NGF election.
