First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan has been in the headlines a lot lately for her controversial comments. Due to some of those comments, the International Criminal Court (ICC) is set to probe her. However Mama Peace, as she is fondly called, is not letting that deter her from campaigning passionately for her husband and speaking her mind. Her latest controversial outburst occurred on Monday in Ekiti State during the rally of the women’s wing of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), when she stated that she is not ready to feed her husband in prison.
Here are excerpts from her speech, as reported by Punch:
1. What did they forget in Aso Rock? If you vote the PDP and Jonathan, it would be better for you. If you vote the APC, you will go to prison. How can you jail somebody for 300 years? I’m not ready to carry food to my husband inside prison oh!
2. If you drink APC, you will die
3. Since my father was born, they have been around changing from one name to another. Very soon they would answer Ebola. The name can’t change you; it is only performance that can change you. If you like change it 100 times
4. Nigerian women shine your eyes, don’t go for analogue, go for digital. PDP is digital, APC is analogue
