The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and the incumbent president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, was in Niger State for his political campaign.

Yanada coci 5000, don haka karku zabesu.” The translation is – “Buhari has selected a pastor as his running mate, do you know how many churches he has? He has 5000 churches, so based on that, don’t vote for them”.
