Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday begged the people of the North to support and vote for him on Saturday, reports Punch.

Jonathan in a personal letter to the people of the region called on them to vote for him in order to perfect the work he had started.

He noted that it would be unfair for anyone to blame him for the Boko Haram menace which resulted in the death of over 15 000 Nigerians.

He appealed to northerners to do the same for him on Saturday.
