As the campaigns/rallies to canvass for support on his second term ambition continue in different geo political zones of the country, President Goodluck Jonathan has directed removal and pulling down of #Bring Back Jonathan 2015 signs and banners around Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
President Jonathan in a statement issued Wednesday, by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati said he “wholly shares the widely expressed view that the signs which were put up without his knowledge or approval are a highly insensitive parody of the #Bring Back Our Girls hash tag”.
Dr. Abati indicated while Mr. President appreciated the enthusiastic show of support for his administration by a broad range of stakeholders, he however condemned the #Bring Back Jonathan 2015 signs which he viewed trivialized the very serious national and global concern for the over 200 abducted Chibok secondary school girls.
In the meantime, the President has assured Nigerians and the international community that his administration remained fully engaged with efforts to rescue the abducted girls and he would not consciously “promote any action that will fly in the face of the seriousness of their plight and the anguish of their families”.
The North Central zone of campaign/rally by one of the groups – Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN), pushing for President Jonathan’s second term in office is slated for this Saturday, September 13, 2014
