Dollar rains as ‘arrangee’ supporters welcome GEJ in America

The ugly trend of using deception as a tool in Nigerian politics played itself out yesterday again in America with thousands of Nigerian supporters that are residents in the US were contracted by a pro-Goodluck Jonathan group to show solidarity for the Nigerian President.The President who stormed Washington DC yesterday for the ongoing US African Leaders Summit was welcomed at Washington DC by a large number of flag-waving, placard bearing Nigerian youths who were paid 200 dollars each to cheer the President.

President Goodluck Jonathan’s Public Relations consultant was said to have measured his unpopularity on the international stage therefore calling for such move as a facelift for his dwindling image that has been affected by the numerous exposure by news website, Saharareporters and the infamous Christiana Amanpour’s interview.

The youths who were gathered from some parts of the United States close to Washington DC were paid 200 dollars for their mere 30 minutes welcome for the President. The President’s image maker were said to be satisfied by yesterday’s success that they were also on the move to arrange a series of ‘monitored’ interview with the President before the end of the summit.

The Presidency and his crew were said to have conducted a research recently and pin-pointed the areas where the President was lacking, a step that resulted to the recruitment of a foreign PR company which has taken up the challenges of improving on the image of President Godluck Jonathan towards the actualisation of his second term ambition.
