Patience Jonathan doesn’t stop amusing Nigerians with her statements…read what she said today again!

 Mrs. Patience
Jonathan, on Saturday declared that her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan would remain in the office till May 2019 to  complete his two terms in office, against all odds.

Highlights of what she said:

1. “Everybody is staying there for eight years. Now it’s our turn. We
must complete our eight years. It is a constitution of this country. We
will complete our two tenure and hand over.

2. “I am a peaceful person and I preach peace anywhere I go. They are
looking for fight, they are looking for war. They are troublesome
people. That is why they went and take expired drugs.

3. “Now they are crying. They are the people stoning people and
nobody talk. They are dragging stadium but me I am ready to go to the
street and do my campaign.

4.“They were there years back. They have nothing to offer. Ask them
what they offered to us when they were there. They were in Aso Rock
before, what did they forget in Aso Rock they want to go and take. Days
are gone when old people will continue to dominate us”.

She said all this during the
Peoples Democratic Party women rally, under the auspices of Women for Change
and Development Initiative, in Benin, Edo State.

The first lady was accompanied by national and state leaders of the PDP to the event that drew women from different support groups across the state. Many were already in attendance as at early as 9am. They, however, began to leave the stadium at about
1.30pm, when Mrs. Jonathan arrived at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, venue of
the rally.
‎Unable to bare the scorching heat, two women fainted but
were later revived by a medical team provided by the party.
A mild drama ensued shortly before the ‎First Lady’s
address, when two men, said to be aggrieved PDP youths, tore down some banners
bearing the image of the President’s wife.
They were, ho‎wever, whisked away by some security
operatives at the arena.
Addressing the women, she said that the presidency had been
occupied for eight years by other ‎geopolitical zone and wondered why the South
South should be denied the opportunity.
She also noted that the Jonathan administration had
performed creditably in various sectors, such as transport and education, and
by her assessment, was satisfactory.
Mrs. Jonathan described the present administration as a
gender sensitive government, which had prioritised women development through
the appointment of several women in key positions, the Subsidy Re-investment
and Empowerment Programme and the YouWin initiative.

She stressed that re-electing of her husband was an
opportunity for Nigerian women to appreciate his good performance, adding that
the opposition party was not dependable ‎and had nothing to offer.
