Nigeria first lady, Patience Jonathan made a controversial statement during PDP Campaign for her husband today in Onitsha, Anambra. The first lady said opposition party, APC is dead and will be buried on March 28th after the Deputy Governor of Rivers State, Tele Ikuru defected to PDP on the premise that the party is full of rebels.
Patience Jonathan during the rally with women in Onitsha said;
Imagine the deputy of a whole Director-General of the APC Presidential Campaign decamping. Does that not show that the party is dead? The party is dead and buried and March 28 is its burial. The party will not live again. When you start answering old drugs, expired drugs, then you know that your death is coming closer. The way things are going, APC will soon bear Ebola. Is Mbakwe corrupt? Yet you jailed him. What of Jim Nwobodo? Yet you jailed him. Don’t support a man that would imprison your mother and father. Jonathan is our messiah. He made Ihejiriaka the Chief of Army Staff and has helped many of our people. Igbos are not fools. We know whom to support. PDP has come to stay.
Patience Jonathan who has told audiences at PDP rallies to vote her husband so Buhari won’t jail them was replied by Buhari‘s wife, Aishat Buhari not to worry about jail as her husband is more concerned about changing the current situation of Nigeria if elected as the country’s next president.
