The wife of former president, Patience Jonathan has compared herself with the wife of former American president, Michele Obama. She also asked that President Muhammadu Buhari to treat her the way her husband, former President Goodluck Jonathan, treated Aisha Buhari when he (President Buhari) lost the 2011 presidential election.
Patience, who is under investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), for alleged involvement in corruption in a statement by her Chief Press Secretary, Belema Meshack-Hart, yesterday said, she was being probed because of the prominent role she played during the build-up to the 2015 elections.
The statement read in part, “We believe that she is being systematically persecuted and punished because of her unflinching support for her husband during the 2015 elections. President Buhari should be reminded that his wife also supported him in all the elections he contested against her husband, former President Jonathan, but Dr. Jonathan did not at any point in time, carry out personal vendetta or go after Buhari’s wife.”
