Abuja - As the time is nearing for the national elections to take place, the two main Presidential candidates Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammadu Buhari have opted to seek support from neighbouring countries such as Ghana to secure votes.

According the BBC, tensions have risen in the populous country as they face a challenging decision of who to actually vote for.

The People's Democratic Party which President Goodluck Jonathan is campaigning for has been targeting Ghana where many Nigerians reside. VibeGhana reports that the party has been posting elections billboards across the capital, Accra, to attract and gain more votes.

The government has not been able to carry out the diaspora voting, according to AllAfrica, those living out the country would have contributed in votes and make a difference in the 2015 poll results.

Due to the high number of Nigerians living across the globe, those living in Ghana have been pledged to make their way back home to cast their vote.

The election race continues for both Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammadu Buhari but only end results will tell if the PDP's campaign in Ghana was of any benefit.
