Reports say that President Goodluck campaign posters are still yet to be mounted in many northern states for his re-election 2015 compare to the situation in Pre-2011 seasons.
Unlike the situation which presided the last presidential poll, many states seem to take cautions to show open support for Jonathan.
A Northern governor shared with Vanguard, yesterday, that most of the people were not keen on re-electing Jonathan and had since switched on their support to Buhari, whom they see as their only hope of returning to the Presidency after many years of remaining at the political periphery. See Excerpts detailed below:
“If you like, take a tour of the major highways from Yobe to Kano and from Abuja to Kaduna and see how many of the president’s campaign posters are standing,” the governor said.
“There are even those on the street are so angry with anything Jonathan that if they find anyone trying to hoist his posters they would immediately remove or deface them.
“Other radical elements opposed to Jonathan have even warned those working for him in the north to retrace their steps or risk being attacked with their family members.
“I tell you that what is happening in the north since the emergence of Buhari has significantly altered the political fortunes of Jonathan in the North and it is going to be a tougher fight than what obtained in 2011.
“What is happening in Kaduna is that the posters of the President are present in areas that support Jonathan but you cannot find one in the key areas that are against the PDP and Jonathan.
“The situation on the ground here in Kaduna is that it may be very difficult for the status quo to be maintained,” the Kaduna-based politician said.
