Jonathan is a Christian from the oil rich Delta region in the south.

It is believed that Iwu was opposed to Jonathan’s candidacy in the elections that are expected to see 75 million Nigerians go the polls in either January or April next year.

The acting president has been in charge of Nigeria since Umaru Yar’adua, the Nigerian president, fell sick last November.
