As President Goodluck Jonathan arrives Katsina state for a two-day visit, groups supporting Governor Ibrahim Shema as vice president have come out declare support for Jonathan-Shema ticket.
Though the moves have been going on underground ,this is the first time that the campaign for the office of the vice-president is coming out from the North-West from an incumbent governor openly
A Katsina PDP stalwart, Alhaji Garba Tasha said Governor Shema is the best and consensus candidate, not only for North-West, but for the whole of the North.
He said, the formal launching of the organisation has been slated for Katsina, on March 26, with a youth and women rally in support of Goodluck-Shema 2015.
Supporters of incumbent Vice President Namadi Sambo have consistently dismissed any hint that Jonathan will dump Sambo.One of them told Newsdiaryonline.com recently he was sure Jonathan will run for reelection in 2015 along with Sambo.
For now observers are watching to see how far the campaign for Shema can go.Will Shema oust Sambo? Only time will tell.
