“In addition, the Egbe Iyipada Yoruba has scheduled a musical jamboree, designed to mobilise support for Jonathan ahead of the 2015 presidential election, as top musicians from the zone are to assemble to actualise the pro-Jonathan agenda.
“The musical jamboree is planned to be held at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos just before the formal planned declaration of the President for re-election”. (NAN)
