[EDITORIAL] Patience Jonathan is “an incredibly crude woman" - APC

christian nwodo - Thursday, March 05, 2015

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation has described the First Lady, Patience Jonathan as “an incredibly crude woman.”

The comment was in reaction to the statement of Patience Jonathan, who described the APC Presidential candidate, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), as brain dead and too old to lead Nigeria, at a campaign rally in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, on Tuesday, March 3.

She had said: “Vote for my husband, Jonathan. Do not vote for Buhari. He is an old man. People, when they become old, may not reason well and their brain may even be dead.”

In a statement signed by the APC’s campaign’s Director of Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Wednesday, March 4, the party said: “It is not only insulting for Mrs. Jonathan to describe Buhari as “brain-dead, it is also demeaning of her status as the President’s wife to speak in the manner with which she did.”

Stating further, Shehu said “it is discourteous and inexcusable for a wife of any President with a modicum of decency to make such a false and infantile pronouncement about the health status of another man on account of politics.”

The APCPCO added that in recent times, Mrs Jonathan had made utterances “invoking violence like she did in Calabar over the weekend, when she urged the PDP supporters to stone all those canvassing for change.”
While commending Nigerians for putting up with her, the party stressed that it was below the standard of a wife of a President to stoop so low to call for violent attacks against members of the opposition.

The statement also said “it is important for her husband to put her in bridles in the spirit of the Abuja Peace Accord.”

The statement read: “The APCPCO similarly observed that much as indecent and disgraceful as the outbursts of Mrs. Jonathan was in an attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of Nigerians about her husband’s incompetence to lead the country, it is typical of the PDP’s modus operandi to confuse Nigerians with mundane issues instead of the issues of corruption, for which her husband has achieved an unbeaten record; his appalling lack of capacity to secure life and property of citizens and a glaring incompetence in dealing with the challenges facing the country.”
