(A banner campaigning for Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan is seen in front of a building in Yenagoa in Nigeria's delta region March 1, 2015. Jonathan's flagship reform policies -- power and farming -- have not hugely benefited the delta. Power privatisation has yet to translate to more kilowatts on the grid anywhere, while reforms to farming, especially cutting corrupt middle men out of a state fertiliser scheme, has disproportionately benefited the north, where the vast majority of agriculture happens. Even so, the mere fact the president is from the delta is enough for many to feel historic injustices are being righted. Picture taken March 1, 2015.
