2019: Kingibe’s Noodles Floods Nigerian Markets
Baba may be frowning while reading this story. It appears there are unknown forces trying to overheat the polity even within the alleged cabal.
The branded noodles are reportedly sold at the highly subsidised rate of N1,500 per carton as against the retail price of N3,150.
Remarkably, the same major cities where his posters appeared are the ones where the noodles appeared for sale in open markets.
The posters flooded the streets of Maiduguri, Abuja, Lagos, Asaba, Kano, Uyo, Kaduna, Port Harcourt, Ilorin and Lokoja.
Kingibe, who was the running mate to late MKO Abiola during the 1993 presidential election, had on Thursday denied nursing any presidential ambition.
In a paid ad in some national dailies, Kingibe said he neither produced nor authorized anybody to produce campaign posters on his behalf.
Top aides of President Muhammadu Buhari were said to have reacted angrily to the posters.
It was gathered that the former ambassador had a lengthy chat with President Buhari last week, obviously to pledge his loyalty and support for the President and to deny nursing any presidential ambitions for 2019.
He was said to have assured Buhari specifically that neither he nor his political associates were behind the appearance of those 2019 political campaign materials in circulation.
It is not clear how Kingibe would explain the emergence of the noodles in the market to the presidency.
