The Presidency seems confused as to the exact state of health of the first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan or could this be another of their hide and seek game that has since come to be associated with news of ill-health of any member of the ruling family?
Reuben Abati, spokesman to President Goodluck Jonathan, had told reporters that the first lady is in a good state of health. He claimed “everybody saw her in the church on Sunday” but didn't say where she was on Monday.
Now, compare this to Patience Jonathan's principal media aide, Ayo Osinlu, who claimed that he couldn’t tell of her movements because he was not in Abuja at the moment. Also, a top Presidency source also revealed that madam only travelled for a quick “check-up, nothing more”.
So, who do we believe here? Why all the secrecy if nothing is wrong?
