PDP women grumble as Patience Jonathan arrives Nigeria

PDP-women

Vehicular movement in and out of the airport was blocked for the first lady’s arrival.

The First Lady, Patience Jonathan, has finally arrived Nigeria after about seven weeks of treatment in a German hospital.

The First Lady waved to and addressed the few people who were allowed into the tarmac

Vehicles coming into the airport were allowed in 10 minutes after the first lady’s convoy left, while those leaving the airport were made to wait longer-about 20 minutes.

Hundreds of women members of the Peoples Democratic Party arrived the airport, some over four hours before Mrs. Jonathan’s arrival, to welcome the first lady. Several other officials of the party were also present.

The well-wishers had arrived in over 20 luxurious buses which were parked at the presidential exit of the airport. The buses belong to the Abuja Urban Mass Transport Company and ABC transport, with many having banners to welcome the first lady.

Disappointed women

Many of the women, who had trooped out to welcome Mrs. Jonathan, were disappointed when they realised they would not see her at the airport.

The First Lady was met by a few people who were allowed into the tarmac.

The welcome party included a large contingent from Rivers State, Mrs. Jonathan’s state of origin.

Some of the women were heard grumbling about their disappointment at the first lady’s action.

Patience not sick

The presidency has never admitted that the first lady was sick. The only statement from the presidency on the first lady’s presence in a German hospital was that she had gone to rest from a busy schedule.

Several news reports however indicated that Mrs. Jonathan was flown to Germany for a serious ailment. Several ailments were mentioned including food poisoning, while a source at the villa said the first lady was diagnosed with ruptured appendicitis.

    Haba Premium Times, don’t let us place you people in the same category with Sahara Reporters. The Check your facts, perhaps your reporter was not at the airport or rather he was far from the tarmac. Mrs Jonathan did waved the crowd before and after alighting from the plane. She also granted an interview to NTA for at least 10 minutes before she got into the vehicle to Villa.

    From this your crap it’s obvious u were nt at the airport wen she arrived, I watch it live on NTA waving to the crowd and even granted a 5mins interview to Moji makanjuola of NTA, after the interview she went round waving to the different women group present. Always verify your facts b4 rushing to the press. All this black market journalist with their misleading reporting, I think Nig union of journalist shud step up to arrest dis professional misconduct.

    Thank God she is back, so she can face her job as a perm sec in Bayelsa. It’s a pity she couldn’t talk to or wave to her fellow widows because of her parkinson disease issues, they need to wait while she re-learns how to talk and wave.

    The imported german physiotherapists came with a different plane and are already in Abuja, itching to get started, working her nerves.

    There was surreal silence in Abuja while she was away, but despite her apparent paralysis, things are getting revved up once more, thanks to her return. It shall be well with our Patience
