Nigeria's First Lady Patience Jonathan Faults Calls To Scrap ‘First Ladies’ Office

Dame Patience Jonathan, wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, has faulted the calls in some quarters for the scraping of the office of the First Ladies, arguing that “First Ladies have made profound contributions to the development of Nigeria.”

Mrs. Jonathan said this in Umuahia, Abia State while speaking at the grand civic reception in her honour by her maternal kinsmen of the Ohuhu clan in Sunday.

She said contrary to opinions and wrong impressions by some people, First Ladies played essential roles in moving the country forward, adding that those behind the calsl might not have appreciated the good parts being played by First Ladies.

The wife of the President recalled that she had, through her office, touched positively on the lives of many Nigerian women and youths, adding that in the same vein many governors’ wives had also impacted positively on the lives of people in their various states.

She maintained that First Ladies all over the world played supportive roles which, she noted, were very germane for the successes recorded by their husbands.

  1. Madam, that doesn't answer the fact that your office is unconstitutional and duplicates the ministry of women affairs duties. Budgets to your office is unconstitutional as well as criminal. Just say it's another avenue to steal money. Let's call a spade a spade. Show me the country where a first lady is a political public figure making money from a corrupt government. Your husband was voted for and not you so go back and support his remaining term from home as a loving wife and mother to your children.
