NIGERIA: No first lady has been harassed like me, Patience Jonathan cries out

NIGERIA: No first lady has been harassed like me, Patience Jonathan cries out

Patience Jonathan


Nigeria’s former First Lady, Mrs Patience Jonathan, on Thursday alleged harassment of her family by security agencies and sought House of Representatives intervention.

In a petition to the Lower Chamber, Jonathan urged the Federal Government to call the agencies to order.

The petition was presented at the House’s plenary by the lawmaker representing Okrika Constituency of Rivers, Rep. Bright Tamuno.

Presenting the document, Tamuno urged the house to wade into the matter in consideration of the sacrifices her husband, former President Goodluck Jonathan, made for the country.

According to him, no former first lady has been harassed like this before, and in view of the sacrifices that her husband has made for the country, the house should consider and call the security agencies to order.

In the petition, Jonathan alleged that the harassment was being orchestrated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and other agencies of the Federal Government.

The Speaker, Mr Yakubu Dogara, referred the petition to the Committee on Public Petitions for further legislative action.

The former first lady had petitioned the House on a similar in December, 2016. (NAN)

  1. You are correct! No First Lady in the history of Nigeria has ever been interrogated and harassed like you even when they used the nation's wealth more than you. This has taught you and your husband that there's nothing like home and family. You cannot please the Hausa-Fulani and Yoruba and forsake your people. Now, you and your husband are being hunted all over Nigeria. What about Abacha’s family, IBB, Obasanjo, Abubakar, Yar'Adua's family, etc. You better advise your people in Niger Delta join hands to restore Biafra nation. That's the only future we have in that evil and wicked contraption called Nigeria. A word is enough for the wise.
