@PresidentGEJ tweets election comedy

A hand-in-cheek Twitter user posing as President Goodluck Jonathan is giving its followers comical updates to laugh out loud about the ongoing electioneering.

President Jonathan, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) popularly called President GEJ – a combination of the first letters of his names – has 22 other Twitter accounts posing as his but this comical one stands out.

In his first tweet on Monday, he appeared real. “Less than 2 weeks to an election that will finally make me the real president of Nigeria, I opened a twitter account. Please follow me,” the user tweeted.
