Jonathan orders removal of offensive campaign signs

Share This

By Lawrence Olaoye President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan yesterday directed that offensive boards, banners and signs reading ‘#Bring Back Jonathan 2015’ around Abuja be brought down immediately. The President in a release by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, said he and other Nigerians find the signs offensive and repugnant. According to him “Jonathan 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. “While President Jonathan appreciates the enthusiastic show of support for his administration¬† by a broad range of stakeholders, he condemns the #Bring Back Jonathan 2015 signs which appear to make light of the very serious national and global concern for the abducted Chibok girls. The President assured all Nigerians and the international community that his administration remains fully engaged with efforts to rescue the abducted girls and that he will not knowingly promote any actions that will fly in the face of the seriousness of their plight and the anguish of their families.
