''My Husband Must Complete his Two Terms'' – Mrs. Jonathan

The wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, on Saturday insisted that her husband would remain in office for eight years to complete his two terms in office, no matter the opposition. 

PUNCH reports that Mrs. Jonathan, said this during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) women rally, under the endosement of the "Women for Change and Development Initiative", in Benin, Edo State. She was accompanied by national and state leaders of the party. They were chosen from different support groups across the state turning out for event as early as 9am in the morning. 

They, however, began to leave the stadium in the afternoon at about 1.30pm, when Mrs. Jonathan arrived at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, venue of the rally. ‎Unable to bare the intense heat, two women fainted but were later revived by the medical team provided by the party. 

A little drama was displayed shortly before the ‎First Lady’s address, when two men, said to be aggrieved PDP youths, tore down some banners bearing the image of the President’s wife. They were, ho‎wever, whisked away by some security operatives at the arena. Addressing the women, she said that the presidency had been occupied for eight years by other ‎geopolitical zone and wondered why the South South should be denied the opportunity. 

She also noted that the Jonathan administration had performed plausibly in various sectors, such as transport and education, and by her assessment, was satisfactory. Mrs. Jonathan described the present administration as a gender sensitive government, which had prioritised women development through the appointment of several women in key positions, the Subsidy Re-investment and Empowerment Programme and the YouWin initiative. She stressed that re-electing of her husband was an opportunity for Nigerian women to appreciate his good performance, adding that the opposition party cannot be trusted ‎and had nothing to offer.
