First Lady of Nigeria Patience Jonathan wants you to call her “Mama Peace”



Patience Jonathan - December 2013 - BellaNaija

Call it rebranding just in time for 2014.

The First Lady Patience Jonathan will like you to address her as “Mama Peace“.

She made this statement on Friday 13th December 2013 at the inauguration of the the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme Maternal and Child Health, also known as the MAMA Project, reports Punch Newspaper

Her name change is aimed at bringing an end to the violent acts of the Boko Haram sect.

Here’s what Mama Peace said at the event held at the Presidential Villa;

“My name is no more Patience but now Mama Peace because I believe that without peace, there will be no more women, no more children and no more health sector. Without peace, the international community will be afraid to come and invest in our country.

Peace is from the heart and not from the tongue or lips; not what you say but what is in you. We pray for genuine peace because peace is the key to our arriving at our desired destination as a nation.

We are approaching the new year which is a year of peace, progress and so many good things to come. 2014 is going to be a year of no militancy and no Boko Haram because God will shower peace and make us take a U-turn from disaster.”

All hail Mama Peace.

    Honestly, this country is just somehow. The saddest part is that it’s not a joke.

      My dear sister, even in spite of my many shortcomings, I no sure say my self-delusion don reach as Dame P dey manifest. There must be some kind of stupid-juice stirred into the water which is drunk at Aso Rock because when you read press releases like this one and the constant crap Reuben Abati churns out, you go just weak…

    LMAOO. oh gods. I actually get the sentiment behind it..
    she recognises salient social issues, and she is trying in her
    pointless ways to address them.. No Mrs J calling you mama peace
    will NOT solve the problems; but compared to her other speeches
    etc… I will take this one.

    Patience Jonathan is a dumb insolence and her husband Goodluck is a dumb fool, I wonder why we have these stupid fools to rule our affairs, may God have mercy on us. She should go back to the market to sell dried fish, that’s where she belong. He will not run the second term.
