And this has confirmed that Jonathan will run and he will appoint a northerner to deliver him, so he gets to look good. God help him if a northerner like IBB runs. The northern INEC Chairman may close one eye and deliver the northerner and then they will fry Jonathan and re-dominate Nigeria for another 40 years
