The GEJ Effect?
The incumbent Governor of Kaduna State, Mukhtar Yero of the Peoples’ Democratic Party followed the example of President Jonathan by calling his rival, Nasir El-Rufai of the All Progressives Congress to congratulate him on winning the elections when the collated results so far showed El-Rufai in the clear lead.
El-Rufai made the information public on Twitter also saying he thanked the Governor for the gesture.
Just received a phone call from Gov Mukhtar Ramalan Yero congratulating me for winning the Kaduna Gubernatorial election. I thanked him too.
