'First Lady not sick or seeking medical treatment abroad' - Presidency

According to a statement released today by Patience Jonathan's Special Assistant on Media, Ayo Osinlu, our dear First Lady didn't travel abroad for medical treatment. See the statement below...
“Our attention has been attracted by some curiosity in a cross section of the public and particularly the media, about the movement of Her Excellency, the First Lady, Dame (Dr) Patience Goodluck Jonathan. For the avoidance of doubts and ambiguities, we wish to state that the First Lady travelled to Dubai, after which she proceeded to Paris, France, to participate in the 1st Green Women Conference, which took place in Paris on March 17, 2013 where she received the 2013 Global Women Leaders’ Award for Peace.
“She thereafter proceeded to Italy from where she went to Germany to see her mother, Mama Sisi, who is currently receiving medical attention.
See the rest of the statement after the cut...


“The First Lady is spending sometime overseeing the management of her mother’s condition.
“She is also using the opportunity to spend quality time with her holidaying children before they return to school, as they are with her to see their grandmother.
“It is unfortunate that again, some media houses have allowed themselves to be used by dedicated mischief makers against the basic tenet of professional journalism, which regards truth as sacred.  
“It is notable that Her Excellency has a history of visiting the hospital in Germany even before she became the First Lady, thus making her medical trips routine.
“It is also instructive to state that medical experts have recommended that every human being should undergo medical check up every six months, even if not suffering ill health.
“Therefore,  hospital visitations of our leaders should not become leading media issues or attract disrespectful comments”.

Story story!! When you are being lied to over and over again, even the truth sounds false to you, the presidency has done that too many a time. Well, I give them the benefit of doubt for now, waiting when we see our Dame again.

Who cares, how about those that can't afford medical checkup here in Nigeria, have they died? U are busy squandering the masses money, after u call urself, "mother of the nation" a mother that does not know when, where, what n how the children needs her, no wonder why u can't have a child of ur own.

Abigail said...

So true medical experts recommends check up every six months "ABROAD"for only nigerian leaders!ewu abi NELSON MANDELA was flown to ur mothers village for treatment or d princess of ENgland wld b delivering in Abuja.d issue is nt going to hospital but not having good health facilities in our nation.she goats like u shd think b4 releasing statements.

Anonymous said...

My major issue with the nigerian government is the fact that they think information to nation isn't important. They think we are stupid and should remain so. Its like waking up as a nation to find out that our governance has been taken prisoner by another country. Its really sad with all these media (s) good or bad and they still can learn! Big shame on them. Linda you better post this after all I didn't call any names!

Don't we have Doctors and hospitals in Nigeria that these people can use? Why waste our tax payers money on expensive trips and treatments oversees? There are a lot issues and matters that need urgent attention and yet, the little resources that should be used for the betterment of our country is siphoned abroad. Nonsense excuse. Like he is talking to illiterates! So pissed off!'n

Ace Bentley said...

She's back on the prowls of insanity...

The last time they lied about it, she came back to tell the country how she's the new Lazarus in a flamboyant thanksgiving cum fund-raiser cum gala/dinner.

Nigeria will not shift from it's geographical spot to achieve change, it's the evil doer politicians and their cronies that'll have to shift.

Oh Shut Up Mr. Ayo! Isn't that what they said before??!! Denied like it was going out of style. All of a sudden, she came and did 500 million naira thanksgiving!!! Ugh! These people think we're stupid. Don't blame them Though. The Siddon look mentality prevails.

Madam Patience, there is absolutely nothing wrong in admitting that you are ill. If anything, you will find that even as much as a lot of us can't stand you and your hubby, we still offer words of prayers for you. And YES you do owe it to us because you have chosen to enforce the "Office of the First Lady" and it is our taxes that fund you and Mr. Ayo's salary!

RNC said...

I have said it na... You can not cheat people or a nation for that matter and hope for peace to reign in your house. Sickness upon sickness will not depart from household because you are wicked and evil. You will work and labour in vain. It is not a curse but reality.... I am waiting for an obituary from aso rock soon. God can not be mocked. Unless there's a CHANGE you will sow and never reap. Continue the way you are and think you are enjoying.... Let's wait and see

If of all who gave her Dr.? And these publicity manager or whatever they are called make matters worst by releasing senseless statements,they are not ashamed to say she goes for frequent medical check up abroad wasting huge money in foreign exchange using tax payers money to enrich foreign countries instead of providing solid and top class medical facilities and standard training to Nigerian doctors..we are heading for doom if we are not careful may God help the federal republic of Nigeria and deliver us from the hands of oppressors.

madam special adviser, you are a THIEF and a FRAUD, there WAS no green women conference in France at least this year! Neither was there a global women's award for peace. if she did indeed receive those awards,it will be on google if you type in her name and the name of the award. I googled both teh conference and the award, NADA. Idiot, maybe you can fool some Nigerians sha, not me! OLOSHI all of you.
