Patience Jonathan: “If You Vote APC You Will Go to Prison. I’m not Ready to Feed my Husband in Prison”



Patience Jonathan in Ekiti1

First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan has been in the headlines a lot lately for her controversial comments.

Due to some of those comments, the International Criminal Court (ICC) is set to probe her.

However Mama Peace, as she is fondly called, is not letting that deter her from campaigning passionately for her husband and speaking her mind.

Her latest controversial outburst occurred on Monday in Ekiti State during the rally of the women’s wing of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), when she stated that she is not ready to feed her husband in prison.

Ekiti State 3

Ekiti State 2

Here are excerpts from her speech, as reported by Punch:

1. What did they forget in Aso Rock? If you vote the PDP and Jonathan, it would be better for you. If you vote the APC, you will go to prison. How can you jail somebody for 300 years? I’m not ready to carry food to my husband inside prison oh!

2. If you drink APC, you will die

3. Since my father was born, they have been around changing from one name to another. Very soon they would answer Ebola. The name can’t change you; it is only performance that can change you. If you like change it 100 times

4. Nigerian women shine your eyes, don’t go for analogue, go for digital. PDP is digital, APC is analogue

5. PDP is not a party that tells lies. Whatever we promise to do, we do. We are not a propagandist party. Ekiti women, your mother is here and I will not tell you lies, but the truth

6. Nigerian women shine your eyes o! Vote with what you have seen, who you already know and who has performed. If anyone is telling you change, they are deceiving you

7. These were people that when they were there before Goodluck Jonathan, they did not count you women as anything. But today, PDP has wiped away our tears. Jonathan has wiped off our tears. He has fulfilled his promise of giving women 35 per cent participation. He gave 16 seats to women out of 42 slots in his cabinet. He is a performer

Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, and his wife Feyisetan were also present during the rally.

Reports further state that during her speech, the women present were struggling over leftover rice distributed by Fayose. Sources say the women were also fighting over buckets presented by Senator Gbemi Saraki in commemoration of the October 16 inauguration of Fayose.

The struggle reportedly almost turned into a stampede, with many women said to have been injured.

“Shoes, headgears, wigs and bags littered the floor while a woman was heard complaining to a friend that she lost her bangle. Security men had a hectic time controlling the surging women who engaged in a brawl,” the report stated.

    “If You Vote APC You Will Go to Prison. I’m not Ready to Feed my Husband in Prison” – sorry mummy, what did your husband do that would warrant him going to prison or you going to feed him in prison?
    On a side note, you don’t have to go feed him in prison cos there’s food there. By the way, he has immunity (even after his tenure). So you see, it’s a win win situation for you guys.

    1. Why is she worried her husband will be jailed if he has being upright and corruption free?
    2. What does it tell you about the man if he can’t call his wife to order?

    “Ekiti women, your mother is here”. This woman is delusional. She needs to be caged and her teeth locked. So many benefits she can get from doing that, weight loss, President Jonathan winning the elections and a whole lot more.
    Please don’t ruin this man’s chances of being re-elected.

    The last 3 paragraphs of the report were a bit unnecessary and reflects biased journalism. “……while a woman was heard complaining to a friend that she lost her bangle” Really??

    FaniKayode, Reuben Abati and all concerned should pleeease make her stop already. Arggh

      Coughs* She has been checkmated by Bola Shagaya in Kwara State PDP. The same woman is stopping her from being a minister. She has to find other means of livelihood to maintain her lifestyle. Coughs some more* Fayose will give her contracts. I will stop here.

    Ok I really do need to understand what message she was trying to pass across, the one about carrying food to her husband in prison, I am guessing she feels if Buhari wins her husband will be headed to jail? That i get but the one that if people vote for APC they are going to jail, that i need to understand, I know the woman is definitely lacking in the proper use of English but this just needs clarification, (and before anyone says English is a foreign language, the last time I checked our constitution clearly states that English is indeed the nations official language and therefore as far as I am concerned makes it OUR language.) Is this a threat??? As for her husband, has he done something that might put him behind bars??? But again it is Nigeria people can make up something to throw you in jail. This whole campaign deal sef, None and I mean NONE of the parties representatives have given a solid sales pitch, I am tired of hearing I will give you good road, constant power supply, blah blah, Tell me this is what the current situation is in the country with power, we generate so and so amount and for 9ja to get to a point of constant power supply we need to generate this amount and this is how I plan making that happen realistically. Have a game plan and a time line. Nigeria covers a certain amount of land and sea space and we have a certain # km/mile stretch of road connecting major cities and this is how I plan tackling that. All of them are just spewing nonesense and saying GEJ is to blame for armed robbery in lekki and this one talking like aso rock is her birth right. These people are not here to serve no one but themselves. But again if I were able to I will still vote GMB just because I will like to pass a message across that we are tired of mediocrity and if you don’t perform we are more than happy to vote you out!!! So even if Buhari does win he is very much aware that, that seat is no one’s birth right and if you don’t perform, it is good bye, farewell…hasta la vista

    Pepper seller first lady. why would anyone be thinking of prison if he’s just and upright. That shows that the first lady knows who her husband is, I Shame for You Madam.
    Highly local and shallow thinking woman, just going through the excerpt set, I wonder how Nigerians made this terrible mistake of having this kind of person in such important office. Clueless Husband + Local Wife = Failure

    why she is still allowed to make public statements baffles me. Don’t they have someone more educated and calculated to make these rally appearances? PDP is shooting themselves in the foot by constantly putting, with all due respect, the ‘ First Lady’ of the country on stand.

    • hummmm

      March 17, 2015 at 9:40 pm

      Pls let her kontinu. so that she and Jona go waka go ICC after the election.

    Should Predent Goodluck Ebele Jonathan loose the comming election, his wife will definitely be a very good withness for the prosecution. A very good partner in crime. If she decides to snitch for the prosecution against her husband, the prosecutor should reward her handsomely for her cooperation. So she could visit her husband in jail accompanied with varieties of food to entertain him. The snitching has already started. The only prayer every Nigerians should be praying now is for Mohammedu Buhari to win the next presidential election, set the prosecutors loose to go get’em. Then it’s official for the prosecutors to start asking all sorts of questions like, tell us where you and your Thiefy, Thiefy, Janko-riko husband, president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is hiding all the millions of dollars he stole from Nigeria. If she choose to cooperate fully with the prosecutors she will not go to jail. But if she decide otherwise, she will go to jail. She has already admitted that her husband is guilty of stealing from Nigeria. If her husband is not guilty of robbing Nigeria blind, why would she be so terrified with the thought of her husband going to jail if APC candidate wins the election. The bible says in the book of numbers, I quote, “your sins will find you out.” Is that what is making her to be so terrified of being prosecuted? The more you know. I ‘ m just. Saying. A word is enough for the wise.


    March 17, 2015 at 6:47 pm

    She knows her husband is a thief. madam war or what ever you call yourself, we will vote for APC, drink APC, your husband fail us.

    If we calculate the fuel used for this woman’s tour, it can at least fix one of the major issue in naija, Please which babalawo do these jazz for this woman to bottle up a whole president and irrelevant Namadi in a rusty can, that this woman has to campaign like crazy on their behalf this last 6 weeks and have hungry Nigerians hustle for rice and buckets.

    So na because of power all these learned men and women stand under harsh UVB light and listen to a woman i can’t even listen to for 2 mins on you tube. HUNGER BAD OHHHHH, CONDITION DON MAKE CRAYFISHES BEND FOR NAIJA.

    The reason for the election postponement is now obvious; to buy time for Jona and Paypay to “paste: themselves on our faces via tours round the states, media parleys, “dashing” out public funds etc. There is God oooooo

    Later some people will question APC’s decision to report this woman to ICC, saying Nigeria has more pressing issues forgetting that this change we are all clamoring must start from somewhere and people must be cautioned when careless statements are made regardless of who makes such statements. On a lighter note, I’m still waiting for pro GEJ to say a spell was cast on mama peace by APC to keep making these statements. Kontinu…..
