    Now that is a great story. Don’t care one way or another about the Jonathans but to adopt a child from her early age even though not formally, that indeed is worthy of commendation. God bless them for this selfless act.

    I didn’t know they had “chilrens”- adopted or not, in fact I remember reading that they had no kids. I guess they’ve been pretty low-key, perhaps they don’t go to any of the federal universities that were on strike for 6 months. Anyway, I suppose I would be low key too, if those were my parents.

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      March 28, 2014 at 3:35 pm

      They have kids. Some biologically related to one parent.

      I find it sadly amusing that he’s been the President of Nigeria for how many years now( (?) and yet, somehow, we the people have very little information about the exact make up of our “First Family”. Unnecessary secretiveness…

      And she really is quite pretty.

    • anonymous

      March 28, 2014 at 5:14 pm

      On the contrary, all members of the president’s family attend Federal Government universities. Faith is a Lawyer fully trained in Nigeria.

    She’s pretty and bears a slight resemblance to mama Peace… I guess they should be related.

    It’s only in Naija that you must explain if a child is biological or adopted,sigh

  33. Agidi_jollof

    March 28, 2014 at 6:01 pm

    I’m friends with another adopted daughter. Also a lawyer. One thing I like about the Jonathans is how low key they are. I served with Eddy and she’s very down to earth, unassuming. Unless she tells you she’s related to the first family you won’t even know.
    I wish this beautiful couple a HML

    Congrats to the couple. But the president and his wife have always given us the picture of a family of four (two kids). Now we know he has an adopted daughter, maybe adopted kids. Nigeria I hail thee!
