April General Election: Three governors anxious for Jonathan’s endorsement

President Goodluck Jonathan
There are indications that at least three sitting Peoples Democratic Party governors in the North are currently desperate for the support of President Goodluck Jonathan in the run-up to April’s governorship election.

Investigations by our correspondents on Friday showed that there was concern among the supporters of Zamfara State Governor, Alhaji Aliyu Shinkafi; his Sokoto State counterpart, Alhaji Aliyu Wamako; and Alhaji Usman Dankigari (Kebbi State) because of the fallout from this month’s PDP presidential primaries.

It was gathered that the chapters of the party feared that the President might not support them in the governorship poll because of his loss to former Vice-President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the three states.
