The First of Lady of Nigeria, Mrs. Patience Jonathan has stated why her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan should be re-elected and why his rival, General Buhari isn’t the right man for Nigeria.
Speaking yesterday, February 26, Mrs. Jonathan stated that her husband deserved the support of women in the country because he had delivered on the promises he made to Nigerian women in 2011.
She spoke during the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Women Campaign Rally held in Makurdi, the state capital. Dame Jonathan said,“today pregnant women enjoy free antenatal care, we have realized our 35 percent affirmative action and more women are beginning to realize their potentials under this administration”.
Speaking on why General Buhari should be rejected, Mrs. Dame Jonathan advised women not to vote the APC presidential aspirant because,“a 72 year old man has nothing to offer Nigerians,”in her words. Also addressing the women was the wife of the Benue state Governor, Arch. Yemisi Suswam, who in her speech lauded the efforts of Dame Jonathan for carrying women along, particularly in the actualization of 35 percent affirmative action for women.
Mrs Suswam said Benue women were desirous of President Goodluck Jonathan’s return to Aso Rock because of his impressive achievement in all sectors of Nigeria’s economy.
Governor Gabriel Suswam, on his part described the first lady as a reliable woman who had remained firm in supporting her husband to record resounding success in governance.
Meanwhile, speaking also in Delta state, Orerokpe, Okpe LGA, The First Lady also said that Nigerians should vote her husband because PDP do not tell you about change because we are not bus conductors that ask for change.
