Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has directed that the #BringBackJonathan2015 signs and banners around Abuja be brought down immediately.
According to a statement Reuben Abati, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, released on Wednesday, Jonathan wholly shared the widely expressed view that the signs, which were put up without his knowledge or approval are a highly insensitive parody of the #Bring Back Our Girls hash tag.
Abati added that President Jonathan appreciated the enthusiastic show of support for his administration by a broad range of stakeholders, he condemned the #Bring Back Jonathan 2015 signs which appear to make light of the very serious national and global concern for the abducted Chibok girls.
