Presidency Orders Removal of ‘Offensive’ #BringBackGoodluck2015 Signs
The Campaign signs bearing #BringBackGoodlcuk2015, which drew local and international condemnation has been ordered by the Presidency to be removed, President Jonathan’s spokesperson, Reuben Abati, said on Wednesday.
In a statement by Abati, the presidency condemned the billboard and distanced itself from the campaign which is being spearheaded by a Pro-GEJ group called ‘Goodluck Initiative For Transformation’.
The statement appreciated the support but called on the banners to be taken down.
Read below, the full statement released by Reuben Abati.
President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has directed that the #Bring Back Jonathan 2015 signs and banners around Abuja which he and many Nigerians find offensive and repugnant be brought down immediately.
President Jonathan wholly shares the widely expressed view that the signs which were put up without his knowledge or approval are a highly insensitive parody of the #BringBackOurGirls hash tag.
While President Jonathan appreciates the enthusiastic show of support for his administration by a broad range of stakeholders, he condemns the #BringBackJonathan2015 signs which appear to make light of the very serious national and global concern for the abducted Chibok girls.
The President assures all Nigerians and the international community that his administration remains fully engaged with efforts to rescue the abducted girls and that he will not knowingly promote any actions that will fly in the face of the seriousness of their plight and the anguish of their families.
