There are strong indications that the North is mobilising the region to campaign against President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
There have will be a series of radio programmes to sensitize Northerners on the need to vote against the PDP since the party have refused to field a northern candidate.
The Arewa Consultative Forums spoken Mohammed Ibrahim, explained it thus:
“ACF is packaging a sensitisation programme that will enlighten the people on the importance of voter registration and election of credible candidates in 2015. We will soon launch the programme which will include jingles and posters.”
The spokesman for the Northern Elders Forum, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, said “is now more than ever before, united in the desire to have one of its own as President come 2015.”
Another northern leader, National Coordinator, Coalition of Northern Politicians, Academics, Professionals and Businessmen, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, said
He said “Quote me, if this President rigs himself back into office in 2015, it may very well mark the end of this country.”
Mohammed, who was a Kano State delegate to the just concluded National Conference, said, “Jonathan is a divisive character. He is not only tribalistic, he is clannish. He is very corrupt, irresponsible and he is not ashamed to lie. He has done more damage to the psyche of the average Nigerian that any other government in recent memory.”
