2015: Northern governors supporting Jonathan get death threats

With less than 50 days to the 2015 general elections, information made available to journalists through pointblanknews.com reveals that some northern governors who are in support of Jonathan are getting death threats.

According to the reports, text messages are being sent to governors and some key opinion leaders of the north urging them to desist and dump the idea of mobilizing for Jonathan.

It was learnt that some of the governors who spoke to vanguard showed two of such text messages in English and Hausa languages, warning them not to betray the north as they did in the last presidential election.

One of the governors said as reported by Vanguard: ‘’what is really worrying those of us who are perceived to be pro Jonathan governors or supporters is that open threat messages are being sent to our phones.’’

One of the mails he said came from a high ranking federal northern legislator, while the other came from a man who the governor allegedly called a friend.
