    Your brothers era is full of death and destruction !

    • Wähala

      In that family in particular… curious indeed!
      Meni, Mama-Sisi, Nancy Olei… all sudden deaths. Leaves me wondering too… Haba !!
      Shaa o… May God forgive her sins and welcome her Soul in Merciful Repose… Amio o’jare !!!

      • perex

        Take heart your Excellency! God knows best!! And may her soul rest in the bossom of the Almighty God Amen!!!

        @Wahala, na one per end of year. 2012, 2013, early 2015(that one na for 2014). I have always been of the opinion that the Jonathan there now is not the Jonathan we elected. Something has taken residence in him and even God has rejected him.

      We know this, but my brother, this is not what the Qur’an teaches you. Even if you wanted to point this out, couldn’t you have extended yur greetings to her husband and children who might not be guilty of the happenings in this regime?
      Can’t you see Abdullahi Bukar’s comment below?
      What you are taught is: ‘Inna Lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un’.
      But since you are a bigot, i guess you feel she is an ‘infidel’.

    May her soul rest in the bossom of The Lord. Mr President,please take heart and remember that our Lord giveth and taketh at his own time.

  • Guguru

    He could not fly her abroad the way he flies his wife abroad.

    • sirjoka

      Me wonder why?

  • Enemona

    Our thoughts are with the president and his family. May her soul rest in peace. May God console the members of this family.

    Take heart, Mr President. Although your indifference and horrific governance has caused Nigerians monumental grief and loss of innocent people, I must commisserate with you. The loss of a sibling, offspring, parent, or spouse is an indescribably deep pain that should never be wished on anyone. And I hope you reflect on that so you can apologise publicly to Nigerians regarding the ignominious callousness which you arrogantly dished out to the families of the Chibok girls and the rest of us during the darkest hour of their lives.

    Remember also the 18 innocent youths which you sent the army and the Police force to shoot dead in January 2012. Their crime was that they often came out on the streets to dance every morning to some quality music as a way of showing peaceful protests against your offensive gutter policy of a fraudulent fuel subsidy removal, which your government has failed to explain to date. A subsidy that was had a budget benchmark of about N200b per annum mysteriously ballooned into nearly N2 trillion in just under two years under your watch. Rather than sending the criminal collaborators (including your Oil Minister) to life jail, you decided to punish Nigerians because you saw them as easy targets.

    I am not a typical Nigerian who often calls a bad person a good name on account of death. I don’t shed crocodile tears. I tackle the cause of death preventively and proactively. I speak the truth as a therapy for the conscience. Therefore, alongside my heartfelt condolences to you is also a reminder that you have consciencelessly sent many innocent Nigerians to the place where your beloved sister has gone. It is wrong and offensive to good conscience. And your sister’s unfortunate departure should help you to reflect on that. Take heart!

    • OmoLasgidi

      Bold words – so True from a Truly “True” Nigerian. Well said!

  • Abdullahi Abba Bukar

    We all come from Almighty God and to Him shall we returned. Your Excellency, please accept our sympathy. May her soul rest in peace amen.

    • Baba Messi

      You have spoken like a true Muslim.
      This is the type of maturity we need in this country. Even if one has to point out GEJ’S failure, for the sake of the woman’s immediate family who might be innocent to some of the happening in the country, a word to commiserate with them is good. Which u have done Abdullah Bukar.
      You are Blessed for this..

      • Abdullahi Abba Bukar

        Thanks, I appreciate. God Almighty created us to respect and value the lives of every human regardless of his or her tribe or religion affiliation. It is only fair to sympathize with any one who lost his or her dear one.

  • adekenny

    May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace! May Amighty ALLAH give her family the fortitude to bear the lost

  • musa

    May her soul rest in peace,your Excellency take heart oooh


    The Dummy president’s brother died last year, and the sister this year. Is Jonathan fettish?. The guy will do anything to remain the president


    @ BABUYANMA, you probably have never lost someone, otherwise, you will not be talking like a senseless human being. Come on have a heart.

  • paul eneke

    They don carry the poor woman do sacrifice for election.You will fail IJN. amen.

  • Peter Irene

    Death comes to all. Both Kings and Queens. My heart and prayers go to the family friends especially the mother. May the Lord protect the remaining to bury their mother at old age.

  • Jewa

    “…Put Alex Otti where he belonged…” this sums the drivel that you have written. I just don’t get how you have the gumption to write this dross when you and your lot brazenly rigged the election that go you into office and when karma catches up with you, you cry foul.

    The truth is that Okezie Ikpeazu does not deserve to be the governor of Abia state and even you, know this.
