Nigeria election slogan hashtag sparks controversy

The president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has ordered election banners with the slogan "Bring Back Jonathan 2015" to be taken down.

The campaign banners were widely condemned on social media as they seem to have copied the hashtag, "Bring Back Our Girls", which went viral following the abduction of more than two hundred schoolgirls.
