CRIME NEWS: POLITICS: Men Arrested for Tearing Patience Jonathan’s Posters in Edo State

The visit of the wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, to Edo State, was on Saturday disrupted when some men, suspected to be aggrieved youths of the Peoples Democratic Party, pulled down some banners bearing the image of the First Lady, at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin, the state capital. Mrs. Jonathan was in the state to drum support from Edo women for her husband’s re-election campaign. It was learnt that the men climbed the fence where the banners were placed and began to pull them down as soon as it was time for the First Lady to deliver her address.
Irked by what they termed to be an attempt to mar the visit of the President’s wife, some youths and policemen dressed in branded T-shirts, bearing the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria logo, accosted the men.
It was in the process of a brewing brawl that some policemen, drafted to the venue of the rally to provide security, whisked them away in a police vehicle.
The state Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Chris Nehikhare, said he had no doubt that the perpetrators were sympathisers of the All Progressives Congress.

Hahahaha. And that's how the cookie crumbles. In Lagos, you hardly would find a GEJ poster in a state road and GMB in a Federal road. Heard that's how it is in other states too that has it vice versa when it comes to the Gov.

@jesse: you are absolutely right. i and my friend were driving around major roads in Lagos recently. i noticed that APC posters are dominating Lagos. you barely see PDP posters in Lagos. my friend told me it's just because Lagos is governed by APC, that's why. others say it's the same thing happening in Edo, Kano. Even PDP states are also guilty of this crime. i think the numbers of posters should be equal irrespective of the party handling the affairs of the state. power of incumbency in a state can result to heavy opression such as the "POSTER OPPRESSION". if other parties are not given equal right to place POSTERS. that means such government is monopolizing it. To me, it is a "preliminary indirect rigging". if you come to lagos, you won't know if other parties exits. all you see is AMBODE, BUHARI, AND APC. likewise PDP STATES. it make make the electorate believe such party only exist even when parties with fewer adverts BUT have better agendas.

@ Endy. That's Nigeria for you. They all wana get undue advantage.

@JESSE: can the national assembly do anytime about this? as to enact law that relates to this

Dahiru Adamu

What is d madam poster stand 4?or he is d candidate 4 firstlady?

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

@ Endy. They can but this is Nigeria. Enforcing laws is a big problem. People could also tear it at night. You know we don't have a means of catching criminals/vandals that way. We install CCTV when we don't have a database. Idiocy.
