With the expiration of today’s deadline for the substitution of presidential candidates for the February 14 presidential election, President Goodluck Jonathan and General Muhammadu Buhari are now confirmed as their political parties can no longer replace them as flag bearers of Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressive Congress.
