Despite a directive to members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to desist from carrying out his 2015 campaign, second term posters of President Goodluck Jonathan emerged in strategic places in Abuja on Tuesday.

The posters, which are in State House, Asokoro District and other strategic places, say: “There is no vacancy in Aso Rock in 2015,” and “One good turn deserves another.”  They show the president in his traditional Ijaw attires.

Meanwhile, the President, confirming his official sluggishness, has vowed to improve, in 2013, the pace with which he attends to official matters.  He was speaking in Abuja at a Church Service he attended to mark the New Year celebration.

He defended his slow pace in the past, saying he would not focus on criticism by the opposition.

“Sometimes, people say this government is slow,” he said.  “Yes, by human thinking, we are slow, but I can say that we are not slow.
“Government must think things properly before it acts. When you don’t think through things properly, or when you rush, you will make mistakes.

It is more difficult to correct errors. You can ask those who build houses. Government will not, because of the perception, begin to rush.”
