Patience Jonathan reportedly Flown to Germany for Treatment



Patience Jonathan - December 2013 - BellaNaija

The First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Dame Patience Jonathan has reportedly been flown to Germany for treatment.

According to Sahara Reporters, two “reliable” sources told the news agency of the secret travel.

Patience Jonathan is said to have left the President Villa in Abuja, for the German hospital about a week ago. She has been keeping a low profile weeks before the secret trip.

No report on the ailment and how long she will be in the German hospital.

In 2013, the First Lady traveled abroad for treatment; when she arrived she thanked God for rescuing her from coma, even after her spokesperson denied she traveled because she was sick.

    So the facilities inside Nigeria are not good enough for our nigerian First Lady. Draped in the finest gold and top notched designer wears she boards a first class plane to Germany for , for first class treatment. So exactly what impression is she giving to the outside world. What does she think these foreigners think of her in her finery. Am so rich but my country is so poor it can not boost of even one medical facility that a rich presidents wife can get treated in. The whole situation just stinks of banana republic corruption and if she is intelligent enough she would notice their sarcastic and well deserved racist comments and cringe with shame.
    What about the poor citizens of this country , they are doomed to poor medical facilities, not fit for the grand First Lady. It’s a big shame. An embarrassment. A true picture of the state of affairs in Nigeria.

    Yes as usual, they all scurry abroad for treatment while they let
    the hospitals we have here rot. I live in Bayelsa and the 500 bed hospital that was completed was never used, it has been allowed to rot, brand new ambulances left in the car park to decay, the cabinets that were brought were left outside the hospital gates in the rain and sun. I’ve been in Bayelsa since 2012 and this is 2014 and the building is still there! It’s so annoying to see things like this and then you hear our ogas at the top scurrying abroad every time get a headache. Now they are supposedly building a state of the art diagnostics center in front of the decaying building.

      @ omote, pls don’t just blame the govt for everything. Ok I may be wrong, but where are the doctors and other medical personnel that are needed to run a proper medical facility? I mean u don’t expect the govt to provide equipped hospital like the one u mentioned and run the hospital as well, seeing that they re not into medicine. Our universities – medical schools take in students based on who u know and not based on knowledge or medical competence, infact the whole education system is messed up. Most so called doctors practicing in the available govt and private hospitals haven’t got a clue, all they know is malaria and typhoid. It doesn’t matter what ur symptoms are, once u see any Nigerian doctor, he diagnoses it as malaria or typhoid. We shouldnt be quick to blame govt for everything, Nigeria’s problem is multifaceted, let’s try and look at things from different perspective and think of solution. My two cents…

      Angel…..really? You do sound like you didn’t understand my comment one bit. If you decide to build a 500 bed hospital, then you must have a plan to equip it, why spend billions to build a massive structure and let it fall apart? Why wasn’t that money used to equip existing ones in the state? You are asking where are the doctors and medical personnel to run it??? Really??? Do you know how many of doctors, pharmacists, scientists, nurses e.t.c bin churned out of our learning institutions yearly??? Do you know how many of them travel from state to state attending interviews in a bid to get employed??? I do not agree with your generalization of doctors in Nigeria. There are more than a few good ones out there.
