The portrait of President Goodluck Jonathan is gradually disappearing in federal institutions, business centres and other public offices in Kano State.
Constitutionally , Jonathan ’s portrait should adorn public offices and institutions until his handover on May 29.
But our correspondent observed that the portrait of President- elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, have taken over in many offices.
The development confirms many cannot wait for Jonathan to get out of office on May 29.
As a result, the demand for the portrait of Buhari has soared with each going for as high as N 1 , 500 on many streets of Kano .
It was gathered that manufacturers of the portraits have run out of stock after making stupendous money .
In one of the offices visited by our correspondent, Buhari’s portrait welcomes visitors at the reception .
With Buhari spotting a red cap , a spectacle and a white male flowing gown, the portraits has an inscription: His Excellency General Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR ), President Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces Federal Republic of Nigeria .
A café operator, who craved for anonymity, along Civic Centre Road where the portrait of the president -elect was conspicuously hanged on the wall , said : “Buhari has won the election and that was the change we were looking for and the change has eventually come .
“ So, we wouldn ’t want to waste time delaying the time for his inauguration before we start hanging his portrait .”
