    I’m Being Probed For My Role In 2015 Elections – Patience Jonathan

    Wife of former President,  Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, says she is being investigated for her role in the build-up to the 2015 elections.

    The allegation followed the seizure of the sum of $15.5m purportedly owned by the former First Lady by a court, at the request of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
    Mrs Jonathan made the claim in a statement signed on Monday by her Chief Press Secretary, Belema Meshack-Hart.
    “We believe that she is being systematically persecuted and punished because of her unflinching support for her husband during the 2015 elections,” the statement said.
    She asked President Muhammadu Buhari to treat her the way the former president treated Mrs Aisha Buhari when he (President Buhari) lost the 2011 presidential election.
    The ex-president’s wife noted that she should not be prosecuted for whatever happened during the election and asked the president to caution the acting chairman of the anti-graft agency, Mr Ibrahim Magu, against harassing her.
    The statement read: “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.
    “That is the standard practice in all democracies around the world. For instance, Michelle Obama campaigned vigorously for her husband’s party during their last presidential election, but we have yet to see President Donald Trump move against her.
    “One thing is clear: No matter what they do to Mrs Jonathan, she will continue to stand by her husband, the father of her children, even if it means paying the supreme price with her life.”
