With the conclusion of 2015 presidential elections, as well as the preparation for the inauguration of a new administration on May 29 which is in top gear, President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday said it has become imperative for steps to be taken in restoring the environment in Nigerian cities, towns and villages to their pre-elections campaign state.

Accordingly, Jonathan directed that the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation and the various associations that coalesced into the Jonathan/Sambo Support Group immediately begin the process of removing the posters, billboards, banners, signs and other campaign materials in support of his re-election bid which still adorn the landscape in major cities across the country.

The president in a statement by his spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati, thanked all individuals and organisations who made sincere contributions and worked with immense dedication for the Jonathan/ Sambo Campaign.

He applauded his supporters and other Nigerians for the disciplined, patriotic and democratic manner in which they comported themselves before, during and after the elections.

Now that the elections are over except for re-runs in a few states, Jonathan urged Nigerians to put the recent political campaigns behind them and join hands with the incoming administration in working for a more united, peaceful, stable and progressive nation.
