President Goodluck Jonathan moved on Sunday to dispell rumours concerning his wife’s sickness, releasing a few seconds video clip on Nigerian Television Authority showing the President and Patience Jonathan together.
According to SaharaReporters, a reliable source at the network said the clip of the purported visit was brought to the station by Presidency officials. The source said the tape might have been shot when Jonathan stopped by in Germany on his way to the United Nations General Assembly in New York last week.
Presidential spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati, said the President actually travelled to Germany on Saturday and returned to Abuja today(sunday), a secret visit aimed at dispelling rumours of Mrs. Jonathan’s negative condition.
Pushing the new line today, Abati said, “You can see that the setting does not resemble that of a hospital. She is hale and hearty.”
Mrs. Jonathan has been out of the country for about five weeks, having been rushed to Germany in an emergency, but the presidency has told the public nothing authoritative about her condition. Media reports have reported her as having undergone cosmetic surgery that went awry, while some have reported that she is suffering from Parkinson’s disease and cancer after she had fibroids removed from her womb.
…. If the First Lady is hale and hearty, what has she been doing in a German Hospital or Hotel?
