‘What do you call corruption?’ Patience Jonathan explains

First Lady, Patience Jonathan

Nigeria’s First Lady, Patience Jonathan, on Friday took to the podium to explain to women in Akwa Ibom State the meaning of ‘corruption’.

While addressing the crowd during the Peoples Democratic Party Women Presidential Rally in Uyo, Mrs. Jonathan said the promise by the All Progressives Congress to fight corruption were “all lies”.

“Akwa Ibom people, judge o. Because we are not here for lies. We are not here for propaganda. Because their own number one campaign is corruption. As if them are not corrupt. They are not corrupt,” Mrs. Jonathan said.

“What do you call corruption? He has a house. You, are you living outside? Are you living in the forest? It’s corruption.

“In abroad, if a young boy works so hard and buy a copter, we praise the boy. But in Nigeria, if a young boy works so hard and buy a copter, we say he’s corrupt. Why?

“Why can’t we encourage the young ones to grow? Why can’t we encourage them to do better? We, our mother born us and train us, why they train us is that we should be better than them. Are we to bring the young ones down? It’s not our portion.”

Mrs. Jonathan urged the women not to vote for the APC because, according to her, they have nothing to offer.

“A bird at hand is worth a million in the bush. Nigerian women, let us shine our eyes. Women of Nigeria, are you ready to go to prison? Are you ready to go and give your father food in the prison? It is not our portion. We reject it.

“Akwa Ibom State is a PDP state. It’s not for expired drugs, because APC cannot heal you, outdated drugs cannot heal you. Let them call it any name. Just like as my husband younger brother (Governor Akpabio) have said, they will continue changing name until they will reach Ebola. And they will call it Ebola.

“You know what Ebola normally do? Although Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has said Nigeria is not Ebola country. So they cannot bring Ebola to Nigeria because Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and PDP government will wipe it off. And they will bury it, because it cannot stay here at all.

“So let them continue changing their name. If they fail this time, because I know they have failed, you will hear they will change their name again. They will change it and answer another name.”

Helen Mark, wife of Senate President, David Mark; Amina Sambo, wife of Vice President, Namadi Sambo; as well as Kema Chikwe took turns to urge the crowd to vote for the party.

Akon Eyakenyi, the Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban development, was also in attendance.

Their speeches lasted barely 10 minutes.

When it was time for Mrs. Jonathan to deliver the keynote, she rose from her seat, danced her way to the podium, and spoke for about one hour.

“A good man borns (sic) a good son. You cannot deliver what you don’t have, and that’s why he has brought somebody that can also deliver you from the APC. The one that will heal you,” Mrs. Jonathan said of Mr. Akpabio and the PDP gubernatorial candidate in the state.

The First Lady also described the PDP as a moving train that is unstoppable.

“Remember I was here in 2011 and I came here, I told you that PDP is a good party and I told you vote Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and Sambo. And you know that they will never fail you. And they promised you 35 percent, and they fulfilled their 35 percent,” she said.

“So you can see that your deputy governor today is a product of 35 percent. You can see that the minister today is a product of 35 percent. So I have come again this time, 2015, to talk to you again.”

Mrs. Jonathan said the PDP would increase the quota of women’s participation in governance if the party wins in the elections.

“We are here to tell you what PDP government has done. We are here to tell you the truth,” she said.

“We are not propagandaly (sic). We are not here to deceive you. We are not here to lie for you. Because whatever we say go and search because you will see it.

“Remember when the men were campaigning, I just follow them quietly because I was waiting for them to give me go-ahead. I was waiting for them to tell me what they have for Nigerian women.

“And they told me that this time we have given you 35 percent, go and tell their women that if they vote us back, that we are going to give them 45 percent.”

“Ask them, when they were there, what did they do for you? Women of Nigeria, did they do anything for you? This is the time they have come to tell you ‘I will,’ I will what? What you did not do before, is it now that you will come and do it?

“Remember that they were in that Aso Rock before. All the things that they keep there, they did not take it. Now they want to go back there. Ask them a question, what do you forget there?
Won’t you leave Aso Rock for the new generation? Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and Governor Godswill Akpabio are the new generation.”

Mrs. Jonathan also stated that President Jonathan is committed to improving the country’s health sector.

“Under SURE-P, Goodluck said that for health sector, that no woman will die again under pregnancy. He said that all Nigerian women you have died enough. Remember before PDP come into power, every 100,000 live births a women that born, 840 will die. 840 will die when they were there o.

“When the people were there o, women were afraid to born child. Women were afraid to produce the kids. They cannot produce. They are afraid, ‘I should not die.'”

    Wow!

    After reading all that rigmarole, I have developed a headache.

    I definitely need an APC tablet to help me recover from the ‘ogbonge’ grammar!

    • Lala

      Hahahaha! Kay, you will kill someone o!

    • Wähala

      Wow! Wow!! Wow!!!
      This is what I call “Pitakwa Pidgin English”. I need more than APC… I’m taking a valium to hit the pillow straight away. Professor pass professor for “Engligbo” as my grandfather used to blow in Portharcourt after the war, when we escorted him to several ministries trying to reclaim his seized houses under the Abandoned Property regime of Diete-Spiff’s Administration. @Kay, you needed to hear my granddaddy… Hahaha chei. LoL!

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        Without doubt, I believe his memory is an illustrious one.

          Barrister kay, I salute you.
          This kind of proverb softens the bones of a recalcitrant smallie.

    • Charles Owolabi

      Kay my brother what we should look at first is the audience.
      You would not go to a motor park and start speaking queens English would you?
      It would certainly be out of place. You need to go down to the level of the people there in order for them to connect with you.
      Beleive it or not this lady was well understood.
      The first Lady’s speech was tailor made for that audience.
      Secondly as backward as we may think madam Piss is she has evidence of formal education that GMB can not provide
      This lady has a geniune first school leaving certificate from central school Okrika
      She has 6 O’level credits in the following subjects
      English C5
      Mathmatics C4- look up what Buhari got in Mathmatics LOL
      Home Economics C6
      Christian Religious Knowledge C4
      Commerce C6
      Biology- C4
      The First Lady also has a primary nursing certificate from the old rivers state Nursing board that allowed her to function as a Nurses aid. This was given to her after 2 years of on the job training
      She also has a secondary Nusing qualification from the same board . This was also given to her after 3 additional years of on the job training. She became a board certified nurse in rivers state
      The First Lady is a registered Nurse in Rivers state. you can not become a registered nurse without passing board exams and undergoing extensive training in that field
      Madam Piss also has an RSA qualification in typing and shorthand from London. She is a qualified personal Secretary.
      Now I don’t want to start any fight but just think about this for a second- where do you think Madam Piss would have ended up if she was Fulani by ethnic nationality? given the affermative action program that the country continues to operate?
      There is no doubt in my mind that at the bearest minimum She Would have gone through ABU.
      If Buhari could rise through the ranks to the position of General in the Nigerian Military without a geniune o’level certificate simply because of ethnicity then without a doubt Madam Piss with her 6 GCE credits would have ended up as a professor in one of the Northern Universities if she had been born a Fulani
      People in glass houses should not throw stones

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        Charles, GMB has a wife too! She is very well cultured, educated, refined and very decent. She is equally not renowned for abusing people and using uncouth language against people.

        But best of all, there is nothing in the public realm to suggest that she is a beneficiary of the quota system.

        Please stop rehashing all that claptrap about Faka; manners, public conduct, elocution and presentation are by-products of breeding. Where these are missing, as in the case of Faka, it is called ill-breeding.

        Stop trying to put lipstick on a swine.

        • Charles Owolabi

          Kay madam Piss as you have called her several times has been an object of ridicule by the APC since this election process started.
          The woman has a right to defend her self .
          You call her a swine – How unfortunate
          Having read your posting I recall the words of a great Son of Africa and Noble Peace Prize winner- Bishop Desmond Tutu who in an interview with some white reporters on the eve of black majority rule in SA had this to say about the differences that exist in SA society ” you do not have to deny me who I am in order to be who you are. You can be who you are and allow me to be who I am”
          It may sound so simple but this is the challenge we face in Nigeria . All through this election people like you and other APC members have sought to demonize the first family simply because they are different.
          I have heard all sorts of rubbish about this lady but when you subject GMB to the same standard you find that madam Piss is far better off educationally than GMB.
          These are facts that cannot be disputed.
          You may choose to ignore them but they are hard facts that hit any fair minded person like a ton of bricks.
          It is important that we apply a measure of fairness in our criticism

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Bruv, opinions are free; facts are sacred.

            I would not like to dispute YOUR OPINIONS, but these are NOT FACTS.

            You are entitled to them.

          • Charles Owolabi

            Kay I would not spend much time debating what is fact .
            I am sure you have already done some research on the First Lady.
            All I can say to you is better get used to this woman. She has another 4 years in Aso Rock.
            Not even the blood of the baboon or dog can change that.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Charles, I just gave you an “upvote”, not because I agree with what you wrote. Far from it.

            My appreciation is of your person!

            Your non-combatant and polite approach to the disagreement says you are a gentleman.

            Someone I’d be proud to call a “friend” if this was real life.

            Thanks for disagreeing so pleasantly. I do not like Madam Piss, neither do I like her hubby; and it is not personal.

            Have a blessed day, bruv.

          • Charles Owolabi

            Thanks Kay for those kind words.
            It is only a decent individual who can identify such qualities.
            You are certainly a product of good breeding.
            We may not be on the same side this time but I want you to know that I appreciate quality something that comes naturally to you.
            Keep safe my brother.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Many thanks, bruv.

            Stay blessed.

  • Malik

    Pidgin English is the predominant language spoken in South South / South East, that is what she used. Pls leave her alone…Malik

    • Dan maikoko

      She is speaking on behalf of Nigeria to the whole world. A few pidgin English phrases sprinkled on her utterances would have spiced up her long speech. Even if we use pidgin as the yard stick her speech makes no meaning. Only Nigerians who know her and are able to go down to her level will make sense of her ramblings. Take your 35% Mr. Malik!

      • Mr white Ahmed

        First of all,I am a staunch supporter of GEJ.That not withstanding,I have always argued that the person in charge of refining the first lady should be sacked.The person is not doing a good job at all.I cldnt help but laugh on reading the message.All she was trying to say was we should vote for GEJ cos he has done well.I am an advocate of that message too,which is the gospel of consolidation of the gains of this administration for a better Nigeria.

        • Dan maikoko

          Well said and I respect your position as a supporter of GEJ even though I am not. But standards are not set by one first lady. She has to conform to the international norm like not walking in front of her husband to be received by another head of state. If those who train her are not doing their job it goes back to “northern elite behind boko haram so I wont fight them” syndrome of the president. Take it from me GEJ is happy with good work the team polishing the Dame is doing.

        • Olodo

          …and your definition of ‘refinement’ is speaking another man’s language better than the owners of the language. That was what Luggard told your Grand father and they passed it on to you hook, line & sinker. No wonder they throw bananas at you on the streets and on football pitches. No one ever threw bananas at Nnamdi in the 1920s. No one dared throw a banana at Nkruma in the 1930s. These men knew their worth. But children like you sit down to write rubbish and cannot even appreciate your language. Shame!!!!

          Norway is 4.8m people, that is, less than the population of my Delta State which is 5.1m people. Their president of Norway speaks Norwegian at UN meetings…and any who cares to understand gets a translator….but here you are writing rubbish about refinement of English speaking. Have you assessed her skills in spoken and written Ikwerre or Orkrika languages? Have you tested her skills in Ijaw language? So you see, you are the one who needs serious refinement.

          • Layo

            Did you just respond in English? You must have eaten the banana from Lord Lugard. What stopped you dumbo madam from speaking in Ijaw, she is just a retard like you. Shut her up please.

          • SamPsalm

            Well said. Except that Norway’s lingua franca is ‘Norwegian’ – not English. And when the 1st lady of Norway speaks, she speaks their lingua franca well – mindful that she is supposed to be a role model, not for market women, but for the future of Norway: its young people. In Norway and other countries where they have 1st ladies, values and principles are not sacrificed just to win elections – to be seen as belonging to anything and everything. The 1st Lady of Norway do not have to engage in desperate political campaign ‘gambit’ to win votes for her husband. But let’s stop fooling ourselves with the lie that Patience is speaking down to the level of her audience: rather the truth is that Patience is one of the nightmares of any decent teacher. The student who couldn’t or refused to learn – but who still made it to the top regardless because all the principles of success taught by the teacher had been corrupted

          • Olodo

            Shut up for there! These apc mills churning out lies will never stop their crude methodology of deception…from posting fake one yr old pictures of interview with Duncee as his current interview in London to the creation of a First lady for Norway. This is mumuism.

            Norway has a FEMALE Prime minister. Na woman she be o! Na She not a He. U hear me so? How then did you arrive at a First Lady of Norway and how she behaves in public? Wonders shall never end. Just this very clear fact is what you have apc-rized and ‘manufactured’ a First lady for Norway. Shame dey catch me for you!…First lady of Norway indeed!…Like Duncee like supporter.

          • deltavoice

            You are really an olodo. Is Okrika/Ijaw our lingua franca? When samuel Peters was to fight with Klischko, a pre-match conference was held in Germany. Klischko, a russian spoke russian, which is spoken in many parts of europe. Samuel peters on the other hand spoke Ibibio to the awe of we Nigerians. He disgraced us. During the fight, he was beaten mercilessly.

        Its a pity d 1st family n their praise singers so conspicuosjy are ignorant of public opinion about them and their administrative woes;they are dancing nakedly in pubjic space.No matter their efforts 2 window dress Nigeria n themselves,those won’t change the hard stings of poverty,hunger,anguish,cruelty….on d streets.No matter what,d song Nigerians r tearing 2 dance to is ,CHANGE.if Buhari won’t do it,first n foremost,let’s av a change in Aso Rock n that’s d public opinion.The Jonathan’s need 2 take this reality n resign to fate.It is too late.All of these last minutes efforts are stimulus generates as a result of d election;is that not cruel on their part?They knew what is best for Nigeria but they ignored Nigerians.Rather,they shielded n STK shields criminals n convicts;they even decorated them with honours n presidential pardon,shame! Why is their poverty in d land that should flow with milk n honey?why r their no jobs for our ppl?why are institutions collapsing/Why is their massive insecurity….very simple,it is CORRUORION n GEJ has no capacity or will to fight it.Therefore,another 4 years with him will surely collapse d already fragile foundation of Nigeria.Let d 1st leave d masses who r d electorares to determine who rules them next,rather than make vain noise around.

      Which school? Katsina cuolege? So u too do not know the difference between Pidgin English & Standard English like PT? Is that Patience’s fault.

  • Dan maikoko

    In every presidential lodge there are people who are specialists in every aspect of life, beauticians to polish the first family’s faces and body, speech trainers, mannerism coaches, … and so on. But in GEJ’s lodge even these were absent or at least they have no impact. This president is simply irredeemable. Why would he allow Dame to campaign? Is it because she controls him? Nobody in his right senses will risk allowing the Dame to open her mouth a few weeks to election, not Okupe, not GEJ, not even Abati. The only person that will allow this Dame speak is the Dame herself. God deliver our country this march I beg and pray.

    • Rumournaire

      The election postponement has done far more harm to PDP’s fortunes. Within the last 4 weeks we have seen far more incompetence and embarrassment from PDP than we ever saw before.

    • Tunde

      Thank you Dan, this is the point that a lot of people miss. We have been shouting to high heavens that GEJ is clueless and some people say we don’t know what we are talking about. This is a classic example of that cluelessness we talk about. How on earth, with all the rubbish this woman has subjected us to, will GEJ allow this loose cannon out to campaign? How then can we trust such a clueless, gormless, spineless failure continue to lead Nigeria? On what planet is it ok for the wife of a sitting president open her mouth in public and call an opposition presidential candidate brainless, and this soulless man GEJ has not uttered a word of apology or regret for that? So as you said Dan, its either she controls him or he sanctioned it. I would be mortified if my wife insults any of my friends/colleagues in public, no matter how I feel about the person, and trust me, there would be hell to pay if that happened with my wife. How can we be sure that this clueless man will have the backbone to make the tough and difficult decisions needed to steer a melting pot like Nigeria? That is why he has pondlife scumbags like FKK, Fayose, Abati and Okupe getting away with all sorts, and he has not shown the leadership required to call them to order.
      We need to use our votes wisely and get rid of this band of pirates and vagabonds come March 28th.

Holy God… this is a huge shame… My advice… keep doing it… madam illiterate.

    • Martha

      Gold is sold to those who know the value. It is not her fault if some people have not the mental capacity and capability to comprehend her refined Pidgin. She had an audience. She had market women in that gathering. Some of them not educated at all. But she had to speak to all. She spoke in a language that all present regardless of educational background, would understand. It is a vital public speaking principle. It is not her fault either if some clowns don’t understand this. She has spoken. She has communicated. This is what is important. Yes! We all look but see differently.

      • Maria

        lol…that does not change the fact that she doesnt make sense even if she has spoken it in efik or ibiobio… the woman is a pure brainless being. Our national language is English not pidigin. I wonder if it was Buari’s wife that said this, what would your reaction be? You guys are shameless…

        • Martha

          Point of correction. My National language, ‘Our’ national language – the Ijaw Nation, is Ijaw and not English. English is less than 150 yrs old in the whole of Nigeria. Before it, we communicated, we learned. Shouldn’t adopting another man’s language be more shameless? Indeed Gold should be sold to those who know the value. That was my first sentence in my first post. It is futile conversing with you. Unteachable!

          • Maria

            I can now see that you as brainless as madam Faka… You should know that the language spoken by the Ijaws is called Izon with different variations and not Ijaw. I understand Mrs Peshe does not speak Izon… otherwise, you should advise her to speak Izon in her next public address…like you said, conversing with a pathetically brainless person is a futile exercise, I dont have your time. Good day.

        I submit the Dame as an appearance of the third kind. She happens to be the first lady but she does not appear to be first lady like.

      • kelvin

        its not about the language my friend. her points makes no sense. ex “In abroad, if a young boy works so hard and buy a copter, we praise the boy. But in Nigeria, if a young boy works so hard and buy a copter, we say he’s corrupt. Why?” thats nonsense

      • Rumournaire

        I lived in the Niger Delta for over 20 years and I know what Pidgin English is. If she had spoken in real Pidgin, we would have understood her. Correct Pidgin is beautiful. But she was not speaking Pidgin here. She was trying to speak real English, but has shown she is incapable.

      • Guest

  • Rommel

    Show me your wife and I can tell you a little about you,with this woman,we can attempt to make an educated assessment of president Jonathan,his taste and vision so like what the first lady said,one cannot give what one does not have and therefore looking at the woman,I can conclusively say that president Jonathan is a bushman.

    I just can’t believe this? Why try to correct or spot errors in Faka’s Pidgin English?…the fact that you are an opposition medium not withstanding…this is ridiculous and very strange too.

    Faka spoke in advanced contemporary Pidgin English which is very close to what people often call “Correct” English or Pure English…It is common for people to speak Pidgin this way with interjections of ‘Pure’ English Language phrases …I think PT and its reporters need to go for some orientation.

    It’s sad that some people voted for Jonathan in 2011. Shame on those who will vote him in 2015. Thankfully, the shallowness of their intellect will not prevail over us, because many of those who voted for this eyesore in 2011 have abandoned this latrine intellect.

    Whether you like it or not she is a good communicator and a sound politician, all her target are fully and effectively communicated and they all conceived. You don’t expect her to go there and speak to them in a like of Dr Chukwu former Health Minister or Prof Soludo. At the end what ll she achieve, she got the communication key for the target so leave her alone.

      I disagree. I couldn’t understand her message, and I doubt if the less privileged could either. There are 2 groups of crowd in all her campaigns. The first group are those that went there to collect their wrappers and bags of rice, while the second group are those that went to watch their entertainer and laughing their sorrows off.

  • MC

    Excellent speech by Patience Jonathan! She’s a good case study in the art of oration! It’s only in Nigeria that people stigmatize you for a mistake in use of English – an alien language – though this boils down to inferiority complex.What is the essence of verbal communication? Would an orator speak English in American/English accent to a native market woman in Akwa Ibom state? In the art of rhetoric and oration, you could even deliberately mispronounce, vandalize, coin a new word, rebel at conventions of a given language. After all your goal is to successfully pass your message. This also applies in all spheres; when a crowd is seen circled around a magician at Ojuelegba, Upper Iweka, Iwo Road, Wuse Market, Iyana Ipaja, Kawo Park and other popular locations of Nigeria, the aim of that magician is to sell a concoction to that crowd. What matters is closing the deal.

    Marcus Tullius Cicero, the greatest orator ever (a.k.a. The attack dog of the Roman Forum), in Ad Herennium, a handbook on rhetoric attributed to him says ”That is faulty which is said against the convictions (or nature and values) of the Judge or of the audience”.

    HOW I WILL FIGHT CORRUPTION IF I WIN – BUHARI

    “On the issue of past corrupt leaders facing trials in various courts
    across the country, i wIll allow the courts to decide on those cases,
    but whoever is indicted of corruption; between 1999 to the time of my
    swearing-in, would be PARDONED. I am going to draw a line that anybody
    who involves himself in corruption AFTER i assume office, will face the music.”

    You are both hypocrites for expressing surprise. Buhari is not contesting election to fight corruption.

    I simply love this woman’s originality. If more Nigerians and Africans will take pride in themselves a lot of progress will be made. She does not care about speaking queen’s english – a bastion of the brainwashed African elite. She speaks in pidgin and in her mother tongue. True Nigerian, true African. Madam Abeg carry go.

    • Rommel

      It’s your right to love her as much as you want,nobody can deny you of that inalienable rights but permit me also the rights to dislike her and what she represents,I hate her crudity,I hate the fact that she claims to be a product of Nigerian educational system,as a matter of fact,she said president Jonathan was once her teacher, had she told us that she passed through school of life,I would never have doubted her,I would have loved her even more than you but for obvious reasons,she is a bad example for our womenfolk

      Pidgin English is not her main problem… Lack of coherent thoughts and an Ability to string a clear ,logical line of reasoning is her greatest weakness. Fela Kuti sang in pidgin English and we all understood and identified with what he was saying loud and clear. This woman is appalling, she can’t think, can’t speak, has little understanding of actions and consequences and so she really, really needs to admit her limitations and shut up.

Judging from the utterances of Patience, do you you think Patience is an example of what WASC/GCE intended to achieve? LOL.

    THE ISLAMIC AGENDA OF YORUBA MUSLIMS IN APC

    You are both hypocrites for expressing surprise. Buhari is not contesting election to fight corruption.
    He is contesting ONLY to advance ISLAMIST SUPREMACY in Nigeria. He has no other plan or idea.
    With SHARIA LAW enthroned as public law in the 36 states, Buhari’s Fulani tribe would be dominant.

    In that wise YORUBA MUSLIMS will be assured number two position on the hierarchy of Islamist Rule.
    That is all APC is about. APC is an electoral version of the Al Qaeda fight for Islamic State of Nigeria.
    What is being disguised as an election is a full-blown ISLAMIC JIHAD to capture YORUBA CHRISTIANS.
    The trick is, give brooms to Yoruba Christians, to believe APC is still the same as Alliance for Democracy.

      “Sharia should be introduced in full across
      Nigeria. I will continue to show openly
      and inside me the total commitment to the
      Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria.
      God willing, we will NOT stop the agitation for
      total implementation of Sharia in the country.
      It is a legal responsibility which God has given
      us, within the context of one Nigeria, to continue
      to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly.
      What remains for Muslims in Nigeria is for them
      to re-double their efforts and educate Muslims
      on the need to promote the full implementation
      of Sharia law.”

          In 2001 at an Islamic seminar in Kaduna, Buhari was given an opportunity to choose between Nigeria’s secularism and fundamentalist Islam, this is what he said; “I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria”, he then added that; “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country”.Buhari an advocate of sharia was chosen to address that seminar in Kaduna because of his advocacy and he did not disappoint because he is one of the boardroom voices of Sharia.

    Patience is not a First Lady. She is the First Female Thug associated with the Presidency. APC members have already died in Okrika in Rivers State as a direct or indirect result of her thuggery. Amaechi of Rivers State and Dickson of Bayelsa State DO NOT get along with Jonathan today because of this despicable woman. Governor Dickson kicked her out of her Perm Sec job in Bayelsa State. She has insulted Buhari, Wole Soyinka, Seriake Dickson, Amaechi, northern Nigerians, Adamu Muazu, and has even threatened violence on Nigerians if her husband is not allow to rule Nigeria for a second term. This woman will eventually see the four corners of a jail. The empire she is building with her criminal husband will eventually fall.

    schoolgirls by Boko Haram that highlighted his army’s failure to defeat militants who’ve killed thousands of people in their
    five-year insurgency. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo said Jonathan, who waited almost three weeks before speaking publicly about the abductions, didn’t act fast enough to free them.”

            I couldn’t trot idly by your comment. Take this: More violence and blood-killings have been perpetuated by Christendom (and avowed Christians) than any other faith in existence. The Knights Templar, the raid on Jerusalem, the decimation of 6 million Jews by Hitler. There’s much more than I can manage to express here. The thing is, we often become that which we strenuously resist. We create our own monsters. The tongue-in-cheek war on terror mounted by the Bush Administration did not show how the CIA had effectively created Al Qaeda, and pushed thousands of muslims to take up arms. In a sentence, Christianity has been historically more virulent, more blood-thirsty than Islam. And this is coming from a Christian Professor of History living in the heart of Boston.

    Do not forget that Jonathan was the first Christian President of Nigeria to go for a conference of the OIC. No Muslim President has ever taken Nigeria to an OIC conference. IBB, Babangida was the man who signed Nigeria up for the OIC. Jonathan and IBB are members of the PDP. The PDP is the one islamizing Nigeria. This is fact.

    This woman is a Terrible Mistake… Alla Ladies of substance spoke for barely ten minutes and madam Jona spoke for almost 1 hour to Insult APC?? Is that a woman one can call Mother??I think we should change this woman’s name to ‘First Mama of Nigeria’.. because her decorum is nothing compared to that of a Market Woman

    The PDP hates Patience Jonathan.

    “The gubernatorial succession battle in the ruling People Democratic Party (PDP) is assuring a bizarre dimension with some of the ruling party’s governors protesting to president Goodluck Jonathan what they consider the increasing meddlesomeness of first Lady, Patience Jonathan Mrs Jonathan is said to be scheming to install her preferred candidates
    in Bayelsa, Delta, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Bauchi and Kwara States.

    The source said that at a recent meeting with the president, some of the governors tabled the issue of the president’s wife’s overbearing influence in political affairs.

    According to the source, the governors sought to extract commitment from Jonathan that his wife would not impose candidates on their states in 2015.

    A highly respected PDP stalwart said President Jonathan risked protest votes from party members to save the country from further embarrassment by the First Lady.

    The source who craved anonymity told our reporter, “I have spoken to many elders in the party and they said they would not vote for President Jonathan because of his wife. Even myself will not vote for PDP..”

    “It is not because we hate the president but we can no longer cope with the overbearing influence of his wife. So, expect among other things protest votes against Jonathan by even PDP members.”

    Patience Jonathan the deceiver. She tear gassed innocent women at her rally in Bayelsa State.

    “The hopes of thousands of women
    mobilized for the flag-off of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) in
    Bayelsa state by Nigeria’s first lady, Patience Jonathan, were dashed as
    they were sent home with nothing yesterday after policemen tear gassed a
    couple of them. Some overzealous security operatives also used batons
    on the hapless women who were frustrated for being hoodwinked by Mrs.
    Jonathan to come for the “empowerment program” she had claimed was from
    the MDG, only to be confronted with a political rally for the
    president’s re-election.”

    Nigeria is being run by morons and you all sit behind your keyboards pretending to make objective arguments about who should be president. The reason Nigeria is in this no-win situation of Buhari against Jonathan is because most Nigerians are tribal and religious bigots. It’s always North against South, Muslim vs Christian, we against them. This is no way to make progress and until we set aside these base and crude instincts, real progress will elude us.

      Yeah. And Fox News is decidedly Republican and conservative, while CNN, The NewYorker and ABC and Hollywood are predominantly leftist and progressive. So what?

    So, my people come to think of it in serious note: The PDP Govt. has been crying foul of being thrown into jail, if APC takes over. I have been hearing this for quite a while. And now from Mama Jonathan too. Since they are not used to spending their lifes behind the bars, it is only the poor that are acquinted with such conditions, they are afraid and being very vocal about it. Well, for their information it is not the end of the world, but changing your life style if you found guilty and put to jail. They know Buhari will sweep them off so that we dont have such people that will hijack our system again. Jerry Rawlings did it for Ghana nd now we are running down there for survival. In western country where I live, you go to jail irrespective of who you are. Big names who mistrusted ordinarily 50,000 Euros or Dollars go to jail and their case does not take years but months or sometimes weeks and you know where you belong. I was Minister or chairman or Honorable does not apply. Let Mama Jonathan get prepared with others as well to go to jail. Jail was made for those cheated on others not for the poor who are beeing cheated. Last week, a man was jailed just for loitering. This is like a film what is happening in this country.
