Presidency orders hunt for sponsors of Jonathan’s posters

The presidency has reportedly ordered security agents to fish out the sponsors of President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign posters. The president has already dissociated himself from the posters, which were pasted in many public places in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Tuesday. According to a source in the presidency, the suspicion is that the posters were put up to embarrass the president, thus the need for security agents to unravel those behind the mischief. Presidential spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati, speaking in the same vein, said Jonathan need not pointedly order security agencies to fish out those behind the posters as they have their duty cut out for them by guarding against anything that could threaten national security as well as law and order. It was further gathered that the Minister of the FCT, Senator Bala Mohammed, has been directed to ensure that the campaign posters littering some strategic streets of Abuja are cleaned up. Accordingly, the Abuja Environmental and Protection Board (AEPB) has been directed to remove all the posters from the streets. But as the controversy over the posters deepens, opposition parties appear to be indifferent over the matter, with some of them saying that the posters are not a game changer in the contest for the 2015 elections.
