The House of Representatives on Wednesday, received a petition from the former First Lady, Patience Jonathan, against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

In the petition presented to the House by Hon. Lovette Idisi (PDP-Delta), the former first lady alleged that she’s  being “harassed” by the anti-graft agency.

Commenting on the petition, Idisi said that the wife of former President, Goodluck Jonathan was presumed to be innocent until proven guilty as enshrined in Section 36 of the 1999 Constitution as amended.

“This petition is in line with Section 36 of the 199 Constitution, where every citizen of the country is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Mr Speaker, the constant harassment of the former first lady is a petition emanating from her which was sent to my office.

With the leave of the house, I seek your permission to lay the petition before the house,” she said.

After Idisi laid the petition, the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, referred it to the Committee on Public Petitions.

    This is nothing but a witch-hunt. Buhari should stop using the EFCC to terrorize Mama Peace.

      Witch-hunt or not, does it change the fact that she was/is corrupt?

      “Dummy, is she the only corrupt Nigerian?”
      Nope. Does it still change the fact that she is corrupt?

    This illitrate is still running her mouth upandan and paying poor fools to protest for her. If Nigeria was a civilized country, they would have put her in prison and thrown away the keys.

    They will continue to harass you as long as you continue to hold on to something which belongs to all of us. “The money you stole from the Federal Republic of Nigeria, when your husband was President of Nigeria”. Madam former First Lady, If you want all the harassments to go away, return the stolen money in your possession. A word is enough for the wise. I ‘ m just saying.

    With all the monies traced to her, I can’t help but wonder how much Turai Yaradua, Maryam Abacha and the latest Aisha Buhari have in their accounts – Aisha that only came yesterday, now wears designers upandan… these people have finished our money oO
