Less than one week after the Middle Belt Forum reportedly endorsed the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, for next Saturday’s election, a faction of the group has distanced itself from the said endorsement.

The Director of Media and Publicity of the Forum, Mr. Gowon Egbunu, in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, said that there was no time the group came together as a people to endorse Atiku Abubakar as its candidate for the election.

“This is to clear the air and put the records straight, that the Middle Belt people are honest and highly principled people, who will not sell their conscience for a loaf of bread.

“I watched with regret as one Dr. Bitrus Pogu, the Chairman of Chibok Community in Abuja, on Channels Television, claimed to be speaking for the Middle Belt Forum.

“Atiku Abubakar is not our candidate and will never be. If there’s a need to endorse any candidate, you will be communicated accordingly,” he said.
