First Lady, Patience Jonathan, congratulates Buhari’s wife

The outgoing First Lady, Patience Jonathan, has congratulated Aisha, wife of the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on her husband’s Avictory at the March 28 poll.

In the election, Mr. Buhari, candidate of the All Progressives Congress, polled 15,424,921 votes to defeat the candidate of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, President Goodluck Jonathan, who scored 12,853,162.

In a statement by her media adviser, Ayo Adewuyi, on Wednesday, Mrs. Jonathan wished the incoming First Lady in well in her new assignment.

“The Firs Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan (Mama Peace) has congratulated the wife of the President-elect, Hajia Aisha Buhari on the election of her husband, General Muhammadu Buhari.

“The First Lady appeals to the Nigerian women to work with Hajia Aisha Buhari and give her the maximum support to make her succeed in her new assignment.

“The First Lady (Mama Peace) wishes her well in her new task.”

Both Mrs. Jonathan and Mrs Buhari had conducted separate campaigns for their husbands before the elections.

At a campaign rally in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, Mrs. Jonathan declared that Mr. Buhari, a former military head of state, was brain dead.

“Wetin him (Buhari) dey find again? Him dey drag with him pikin mate! Old man wey no get brain, him brain don die pata pata,” she said in pidgin English.

In Calabar, the First Lady had also said those chanting “Change” (APC slogan) should be stoned.

Mrs. Jonathan, who at some point burst into songs during the campaign, taunted Mr. Buhari, saying “If you vote Buhari, na prison, if you vote APC, na your wahala.”

On her part, while campaigning for her husband in Benin, Edo State, Mrs. Buhari advised Mrs. Jonathan to prepare for life outside the Presidential Villa rather than being afraid that her husband (Mr. Buhari) would jail Mr. Jonathan and other PDP politicians if he elected.

“For those campaigning that he is coming to jail Nigerians. I don’t know what their fear is,” she said.

“But they shouldn’t be afraid because we are all yearning for change. The insecurity in the country, the very poor healthcare system, lack of education and other basic necessities people are lacking I believe Nigerians need somebody like General Muhammadu Buhari to fix them.”

    The Difference is quite clear.

    Also, Aisha should remember her indirect promise to Mama Patience that GMB will not jail GEJ and co.
    Soft landing for GEJ and Mama Patience, please. GEJ is not greedy nor is he a bad as person. We all saw the way he collected his voters card with two hands from the INEC staff during accreditation. A very humble man indeed!
    He just happened to have been surrounded with a bad team.

    • Omoagunmate

      Soft landing for what? where does it stop? murderers, thieves, election riggers?? no soft landing for nobody, we have courts, we have laws and we have institutions we need to strengthened, we can not continue with impunity and pat criminals on the back. It is either we have change or we don’t. No room for a half-baked change. We want things to be done by the rule book and the constitution of the land. For the future of our nation, we need to collectively ask for these.

      • Abanj

        As a southern Buhari supporter, I think we shouldn’t be afraid to state GEJ had some good qualities, a number of his fiercest critics also stated he was humble and accommodating. If he stole he should repay but lets acknowledge his good points.

        • Omoagunmate

          We can’t all be singing about some of the “good qualities” of Jonathan whatever that means. Please feel free to sing to the high heavens, make a record if you want, am sure it will go platinum in some part of the country. My focus and concern is that we don’t unwittingly drift back into excusing those who abused our collective wealth and stole from us. What signals would that be sending to wannabe crooks if not to encourage them that nothing will happen in the end? Lets empower our legislative arm of government, lets re-train, equip and compensate our police adequately and let those who want to break the law do so but be ready to suffer the consequences in an equitable unbiased way.

            Stop ranting. I can see you are blinded by propaganda while I am not against investigation into GEJ administration. I know that most of the allegation especially of missing fund is spurious and unfounded. It was just to take away the heart of Nigerians from a performing president. APC planned the propaganda well and it yielded the result they wanted. Murderer? You called him, I pity you. The northern blinded by their born to rule stupidity started killing their own children in Jonathan’s name just because they wanted power at cost and you got the audacity to call GEJ a murderer. You don’t know what you are saying I belief not until you occupy a public office and witness such a stive opposition then you will learn to use your sense of judgement aright. God Bless Nigeria.

          • Omoagunmate

            Look who is talking about ranting?? Jonathan lost and would be accountable for his actions when in government. So live with it.

          • JustMe

            Thank God you said his actions. ?

          • Omoagunmate

            How far now? na only you waka come? wey ya ogas at the top? Reno Omokirikiri, oleku, deri and co? the bastards don abscond abi, leaving your slimy self to mop up till Dumbo finally call it a day in May? chai!! diaris god ooo!!

  • Fanen Harden

    make una forgive our dear mother (mama peace), her matter i always maintain silence because of the love and respect i have for my own biological mother whom I believe even without the western education cannot believe like that or wear such attitude simply because of money. bye mama peace, Hajia Aisha Buhari welcome onboard.

  • shola

    So you are now begging for FORGIVENESS. If you ever live in a glass
    house, don’t throw stones. Unthinkable!! From MAMA WAR TO MAMA
    PEACE??? Shame on you. The game is not over, NOT YET. ICC IS HUNTING YOU AND YOUR
    GANGS including your former federal minister Godson or Godsday so and so, GODS SON?.
    A MAN OF NO HONOUR who tainted the image of our great
    Nigeria before MILLIONS of people on the Television waiting for
    the electoral results of the states from INEC.
    You can’t change overnight from WARLORD to MAMA PEACE. Teach your grandchildren to mind their utterances, because these would always be held against them.

    Very soon you would be served with an EVICTION ORDER.

    Kindly hand over all the keys, because you have nothing to look for any more in ASO ROCK.
    Neither in 4 nor in 16 years to come. We don’t need you and Nigeria don’t need you!!
    START PARKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

    Mrs Jonathan should have behaved like a First Lady. Unfortunately she did not. Even if she thought those things about Buhari ,she should not have made those insulting and ignorant comments and I say that as someone who wanted Jonathan to win. I watched Mrs Buhari on a couple of occasions and she sounded very gracious. As a first lady you have to represent your country at the highest stage, especially at state occasions and high level gatherings.
