Buhari, A Crawling Baby At 70 – Patience Jonathan

The First Lady, Patience Jonathan, has likened the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, to a crawling baby that has nothing to offer the nation.  She made the remark at the Benue State edition of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Women Campaign Rally held at IBB Square, Makurdi, on Friday.

According to her, a child that is still crawling at age 70 does not have anything new to offer anyone and indeed the people of Nigeria.  The First Lady said that the APC was trying to gain a foothold in the polity to no avail, even as she described the opposition as a sinking ship that would drown and remain under forever.

We Don't Talk About Change Because We Are Not Bus Conductors- Patience Jonathan

The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, Thursday, urged women in the country to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying no one loves Nigerian women than President Goodluck Jonathan. She tried a pun about the slogan of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), as she boasts that the PDP acts more and talks less.

“The PDP is a party that talks less and does more, unlike the APC that tells new lies every week. When you catch them today, they will tell another lie tomorrow. We (PDP) do not tell you about change because we are not bus conductors that ask for change,” said Mrs Jonathan at Orerokpe, Okpe Local Government Area of Delta State, where the PDP Women for Change Initiative Presidential Rally held.

Patience Jonathan resigns as 'Super' Permanent Sec. in Bayelsa

 Dame Patience Jonathan has resigned her appointment as 'Super' Permanent Secretary in the Bayelsa state Civil service, a position conferred on her in July 2012 by the Governor of the state, Dickson Seriake. Seriake said he gave the appointment to Mama Peace based on her good service to the state and nation.

A source in the state Ministry of Education who pleaded anonymity with The Nation confirmed the First Lady's voluntary resignation and said her resignation may likely not be unconnected to her deepening rift with the state governor. 

"The whole thing is political. It appears Madam Peace is not happy with the governor. With her resignation, the battle line has been drawn. I feel the President’s wife resigned to enable her to have the moral right to slug it out with Dickson ahead of the governorship poll in the state. Let no one deceive you, the whole thing is politics. After all, she is 57 and the retirement age is 60.” he said
