First Lady Patience Jonathan says she has not started packing out of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Jonathan was reacting to a media report on Wednesday that she had
summoned her domestic staff and ordered them to pack her personal
belongings in readiness for a change of guard.
The report had
said that when it became evident by 6pm on Tuesday that President
Goodluck Jonathan had lost his re-election bid, a truck made two trips
transporting the first lady’s property to an undisclosed destination.
But Mrs. Jonathan’s spokesman, Mr Ayo Adewuyi, in a telephone chat with Daily Trust described the report as untrue.
Adewuyi also dispelled the rumours that the first lady had traveled out of the country.
(Patience) is at home. Just leave us out of any controversy. She did
not travel to anywhere. She is very much around in her residence,”
On why Mrs. Jonathan had not gone to office since
her husband lost the Saturday’s presidential poll, Adewuyi simply said:
“You should know that she does not have to be in the office every time”.
