IGNATIUS OKPARA, Enugu
As the 2015 general elections gathers momentum, the campaign posters of President Goodluck Jonathan has flooded every nook and crannies of the coal city state of Enugu..
The posters, pasted in major streets in Enugu, the state capital, came amidst prevailing uncertainty over Jonathan’s 2015 ambition.
African Examiner reports that one of the posters has a bold caption “No Going Back 2015″, and is believed to have South-East Youths as promoters.
However, the posters have continued to elicit reactions, as some political observers in the state say it is the handiwork of desperate politicians and political jobbers who are looking for relevance.
An Enugu based social critic, Samuel Offor in his reaction, noted that the posters may have emanated from some attention seeking politicians in the state.
Hear him: “I returned to Enugu yesterday after the Christmas break and I noticed all kinds of Jonathan’s campaign posters all over the place.
“We all know that 2014 will be a year of serious politicking in Nigeria, so it is expected that people will do all manner of things.
“The presidency may not likely know anything about those posters, they could be from mischief makers or attention seekers”, he said.
Also commenting on the issue, another political analyst, Elder Mike Ugwu urged President Jonathan to remain focused and not allow people take decisions for him.
He said, “for now, he should concentrate on making life better for Nigerians; I also advise Mr. President to make good calculation before declaring interest for 2015; he should not allow desperate politicians to mess him up” he advised.
Sources say as the waiting game continues, President Jonathan is expected to break his silence in no distant time on his second term ambition.
