Ebola: First Lady Patience Jonathan uses New Greeting Method amidst Virus Outbreak



Patience Jonathan - August 2014 - BN News - 01

On arrival at the Gdansk Walesa International Airport in Poland on Wednesday 13th August 2014, the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Patience Jonathan, was pictured greeting officials and aides at a respectable distance with a palm-rubbing acknowledgement.

It is being referred as the new way to greet as a result of the Ebola outbreak. Under normal circumstances, the first lady would offer her hand for a shake.

She was in the country to commission a training ship built for the Nigerian Oceanographic Institute for Marine and Research purposes.

    Seeing Dame P brings laughter to my face. Drama Queen even when she is trying to be serious. As suggested by another reader, Mamaaa try a carrier in Nollywood and ur movies would selllll.

    This woman is classless. She is the First Lady for crying out loud. How can she openly show disdain for others? She knows very well that Ebola can only be transmitted by physical contact with someone who is already SICK not infected with the disease. What a blockhead!!!

      You call her a blockhead but I’m sure that with all your acada you’ll never smell the government house not to talk of being the first lady…. Mtscheew!

    I disagree @Nahum”; she isn’t a block head …..cos she’s first lady doesnt mean she isn’t human first of all” or isn”t survival our first instinct as humans ,she is either protecting herself from people or protecting people from herself.You would do same in said circumstance…….I take a cue no more handshakes just palm rubbing.
