There are indications that doctors attending to the first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, who is generally believed to be receiving treatment in a German hospital might soon be on her way back home.
Reports say her doctors in Wiesbaden, Germany have given her a clean bill of health to return back to Nigeria.
She was speculated to have expressed her wish to accompany the president to New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly but was advised against it by her physicians.
The source said, “She wanted to follow her husband to the 67th United Nations General Assembly in New York but she was advised against that by the doctors that, as they they told her that she needed some more time to rest.
“I can tell you that she is now in a good state after a successful surgery. She was only treated of appendicitis through surgical operation at the German hospital. The First Lady is in a stable state. The doctors at the hospitals have confirmed her fitness, but she needs more time to rest.”
The source did not give a definite date for her arrival.
Special assistant to the first lady on media, Ayo Osinlu, continues to maintain that Patience Jonathan is in the European country for a “moment’s rest” after hosting the first ladies’ conference in Abuja.
Mrs. Jonathan has been out of the country for 34 days.
