Patience Jonathan Denounces Tommy Tuck Allegations
Minutes before the convoy of Dame Patience Jonathan sped off to the villa where she strode into the warm embrace of her husband, President and Commander-In-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and her personal staff, the
First Lady made bold to prove the media and other cynics who blew up her ailment beyond proportion wrong.
Although Dame Jonathan expressed disgust over media comparison of her health situation with that of late Stella Obasanjo, former military dictator Sani Abacha and former President Umaru Yar'Adua, who had died while in Aso Rock, Abuja, she admitted that she went through an ordeal.
'Thank God Almighty for bringing me back safely to Nigeria. Wherever they are good people they are also bad ones. They are few Nigerians that are saying whatever they like not what God planned because God has a plan for all of us. And God has said it all that when two or three are gathered in his name that he will be with them. And Nigerians gathered and prayed for me and God listened and heard their prayers, so I thank God for that,' she told supporters and friends who received her at the airport.
"At the same time I will use this opportunity to tell those few ones that are saying that anybody that goes to villa or Aso Rock will die. They mentioned Abacha, they mentioned Stella Obasanjo, they mentioned Yar'Adua and other people. But those people why didn't they mention those ones that went there with their families and succeeded and they still came out alive.
"We should remember that Aso Rock is the seat of power and that is where God has ordained for we Nigerians that our leaders should rule from and to rule us right. God is wonderful and his infinite mercy endures.
"At the same time, I read in the media where they said I was in the hospital. God almighty knows I have never been to that hospital, I don't even know the hospital they mentioned. â€¨
"I have to explain what God has done for me. I do not have terminal illness, neither did I do any cosmetic surgery, talk more or less of tommy tuck.
'My husband loves me as I am and I am pleased with how God created me I cannot add anything. â€¨
"But at the same time, I will use this opportunity to thank my beloved husband and my children and my staff in general and all Nigerians for standing by me during my trial time.
"God has given be a second chance to come and work with women of Nigeria, children and the less privileged. I have come to serve Nigeria, I have come to work with Nigerians, I am there for them.
'Once more I am pleased to be back. I love Nigerians they are my family."
