Dame Patience Jonathan

First Lady of Nigeria Dame Patience Jonathan has denied APC’s allegations against her. You will recall that the party had accused her of making inflammatory statements that could potentially incite electoral violence during a campaign rally in Calabar, Cross River State.

Punch reports that she has denied the allegations.

Speaking through her media aide, Ayo Adewuyi Patience Jonathan stated:

“The only thing we can say from here is that Dame Patience Jonathan is a woman of peace that can never in any way be identified with violence before, during and after elections. You do not expect somebody who is the President of African First Ladies to be promoting violence.”

Speaking on the letter of complaint APC’s campaign organisation wrote reporting Patience Jonathan to the  International Criminal Court (ICC), Adewuyi said, “…the case is not yet in ICC. They are entitled to their opinions and actions. We are not going to be dragged into any argument with them.”

    this is quite a denial. Your general speeches you have been give have bordered on violence. If you made those statement, you should be held accountable. You alone are enough reason to get GEJ out of that office.

    Even tho i criticized Patient Jonathan for saying this, i am very surprised at APC the way is crying and wailing.

    Is it this same APC who wine and dine in threats??????

    What did this bunch do when their very Principal Buhari ,Amechi,Atiku,Lai Muhammed threatened dogs and baboons,ungovernable Nigeria and parallel Govt.

    Was Lai Mohammed not calling her barren???

    Oh please we know the violent bunch!!!!!

    As for Patient Jonathan i beg that you should ignore these APC and don’t play their dirty bitter game.

    Nigerians know the truth. APC became a violent party since Buhari joined them.

    First lady please watch it,let them not put sand in your garri- by Jonathan i stand.

      A wise man once said assumption is more dangerous than knowledge. False truths are very dangerous. Infact what you don’t know can kill you!..like you not knowing that that bottle of water is actually a bottle of acid! It’s far easier to spread innuendoes than the truth, or fictions more than fact. I’ve always heard, General Buhari made an alledgely outrageous statement, about “making the country ungovernable. Understandly I was mad, but before casting my stones, I did my research to verify the truth. What I discovered was shocking, and far from the lies being perpetuated as the truth. I started with a google search of all the local nigerian newspapers, punch, Thisday, the Guardian, basically the whole nine yards!. My first shock came when I couldn’t find any of newspapers reporting verbatim this allegations as Buhari’s words. None whatsoever going back as far as 2004. Then finally I discovered who actually said and the context surrounding such hateful speech. It was the Northern Elders Forum!!..aka the Arewa group. And They responded angrilly in response to the threats of Asari Dokumbo who had eariler said Nigeria willl burn if jonathan wasn’t elected then in 2011!. So now buhari being the poster of the North, his detractors used this tribal sentiments to disparge his character. This aside, All who are truly supporting jonathan for reelection, clearly show that they value sentiments above competence. With all due respect I don’t think you should allowed to run a business corporation. You have clearly chose to conviently forgotten the longest educational strike, the strike of medical doctors if not that ebola changed their minds, the tens of people who died during national immigration debacle and millions of jobless youths. Also the devaluing of our currency to 215 to a dollar,, the degradation of the power sector inspite of the privitization. Obasanjo introduced deregulation as a policy to attract FDIs(foreign direct investments) and left the office with the generating capacity at 4250 MWs, but under Jonathan’s tenure, it dropped down to 1950MW!!. So if yougave someone lest say 4000 naira to help you keep, and on collecting he gave u back, 1900 naira, u wld accept it sheh as all your monies no questions asked??. Nobody expects jonathan to be a magician, far from it!, but yet we don’t expect to go backwards!..do we? Say all you can but this man wasted away the hope the nigerian people had in him. If he had done well, his good works alone would have been enough to speak for him. He would have needed to campaign so hard. Albert einstein said “you cannot continue to do the same thing and expect yet a differnet result. insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”. Even if jonathan didn’t already have all this deficiencies, we all know when politicians come in for their second tenure, they come just to loot public funds. @ Nene, forgive me, but you strike me as someone who wld allow them burn a thief for stealing #50, then turn around to praise the senator who’s stolen billions, as the “son of the soil”. The issue at hand is the first lady making inciting statements, face that issue first, and condemn it for what it is. Don’t go excusing bad behaviours. And If Apc messes up, condemn them also on the basis of their wrongdoing, without unnecessary comparisions to excuse or downplay their wrongdoings.. Let’s begin to hold our country to high morals that are fair and just. Pls note nobody is saying a south eastern man isn’t good for the highest office in the land. No! But pls do the job required, sentiments aside. My carpenter can be muslim or christian, I don’t care, just be competent is all I ask. I don’t want the roof falling in on me. In conclusion I love my country, repect your opinions, but I m certain of the fact that Nigeria is in dire striats, and another 4 years of mediocrity and corruption may prove too costly in the destinies of millions of nigerians out there whose lives hang in a limbo of poverty and deprivation. God bless you nene and bellanaija!

    Stoning those who shout change isn’t violence as stealing isn’t corruption. Aahhh I get the logic.

    When i heard she made this statement, i hoped with all the hope in me that it was just a lie. But i just watched it now and i am utterly disappointed! If it was GMB’s wife who said, everybody would be clamoring for her head. She made a lot of blunders in that speech but for her to tell her supporters to stone anybody who mentions change, that’s very very bad, even for Patience.

    just for the record, ‘buhari’ never said he would make the country ungovernable…where is the video clip?….and as for the monkeys and baboons blood, he made a proverb in Hausa language and they distorted the meaning in English… we should do some real research and stop echoing what they want us to hear and say.
