Ghanaians have taken to mocking President Goodluck Jonathan and his ruling party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for erecting huge billboards in many strategic positions in Accra, the capital of the West African country, something they think is out of place.

According to a website in that country, many of its citizens believe erecting such bill boards, pasting posters of the president on their streets as well as carrying out a massive radio and television campaign, is uncalled for and smirks of misplaced priority.

But there are those who believe that there is nothing wrong in the president campaigning in their country since there are many Nigerians living and working there and they need to know what is going on in their country, though they do not see the impact the campaign will have since Nigeria has not gotten to the state of online voting.

The site quoted from some Ghanaians on the posters:

"I do not think the Nigerian president is on the right track. Why would he and his party carry out this massive campaign in Ghana when we all know that their country do not vote online? It is misplaced, if you ask me."

Another said:

"Though there are many Nigerians here, I don't think they should concentrate their campaign in Ghana, after all, how many of them can go back home to vote? Many of them are hustlers who do not care what their government does back home."

Yet another:

"For me, there is nothing wrong in campaigning in Ghana by the Nigerian president, as long as they pay for the services."

The most funny of the quotes:

"GEJ campaigning in Ghana? Charlee, that man must be a joker. Will they conduct their election here? They do not have anything to do."

Do you think the PDP did the right thing in campaigning in Ghana?
