Let's Talk About President Jonathan's 22 Years Old Wedding Ring [Photos]

Every married man or woman’s wedding ring is special but President Jonathan’s ring is among his most important jewels sentiments-wise because of its provenance and significance. But we don’t get to talk about Jonathan’s ring because there are so many other things people relate with away from this.

It’s not news that Jonathan met his wife Dame Patience Jonathan while he was a lecturer at the Rivers State College of Education, Rumuolumeni. At that time, Jonathan had just concluded his M.Sc programme, and was preparing for his doctorate. It was during this break that he got a job as a lecturer, teaching students preparing for Nigerian Certificate of Education(NCE) and the B.Ed. Degree, and Patience was one of them.
Jonathan later proposed marriage to her and in November 1993, having done the traditional Okrika marriage rites, the couple married at the Yenagoa registry which had his best friend HRH Amalate J. Turner as one of the witnesses.

It was at the event they exchanged rings and Jonathan today still wears the simple yet timeless 22-year-old ring. As for the First Lady, her wedding ring is hardly noticed because she will rather do the cocktail rings.
