Patience Johnathan's Illness is a Rumour – The Presidency

 The darling First Lady of Nigeria always seems to be trending in the news. If she isn’t the butt of grammatical error jokes,otherwise known in Nigeria as ‘Gbagaun’, then it is from her job as a Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa State. Recently, Sahara Reporters had carried the news of her being rushed out of the country to a hospital in Germany because she had taken ill from food poisoning and needed emergency treatment. Sources say this German hospital is the same one the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua was also hospitalized for kidney treatment.

The Presidency has refuted these claims saying news of the First Lady’s illness is just a rumour. Like we Africans say, “Nobody loves being the harbinger of bad news.” I really pray Dame Patience is sound in health and her illness truly a rumour.

Though I dislike the ‘Silent Style’ of her husbands government, which has resulted in untold hardship for millions of Nigerians, I do for some odd reason truly like her and wish her well.

Stay strong, First Lady!
