Ever the fiercely supportive partner, the wife of President Goodluck Jonathan has come out to sound a note of warning to any who believe they can destabilise the government of her husband.
“My husband is a man of peace,” she said, speaking in Bayelsa at a thanksgiving organised by the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Benson Kombowei.
“The growing cases of insecurity in the country are being handled with utmost commitment and it is of great concern to him. Those involved in this act should know that he did not make himself president of Nigeria.”
She also went on to state that the violent activities of the Boko Haram sect were simply orchestrations by a set of individuals who were out to discredit President Jonathan.
“It is becoming increasingly clear that some people are preoccupied with sponsoring of sharp criticisms against Jonathan and the same set of individuals are funding the ignoble activities of Boko Haram and their efforts would end up in nullity.”
“Nigerians voted him into office to lead this country and all they are doing to disrupt and derail the peaceful co-existence of this nation as a corporate entity would definitely fail.”
Hmmm. Strong words!
