With the elections just three days away, First Lady, Dame Jonathan, may have just said that voting for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari, will only see Nigeria ‘move from bad to better’.
According to the wife of the president, if sworn in on May 29, Buhari would only build prisons, instead of schools.
Patience Jonathan made the utterance at a rally organized by the women wing of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Akure, Ondo State, on Tuesday, March 24.
She said: “If you vote Buhari, you vote for prison. When the PDP is busy building schools, they are busy thinking of building jails. We will not allow our children to be put in jail, God forbid. We pray for oneness, we pray for unity, we pray for peace.”
“He was a former Head of State, he did not build Almajiri schools. It was Goodluck Jonathan that built the schools. Ask him what he did for women when he was Head of State. It was Goodluck Jonathan that remembered women.”
“They said we should change, we can only move from bad to better, not from better to bad. Jonathan has done well and will do even better if returned. They have nothing to show,” she added.
However, it should be noted that Dame Patience Jonathan has recently been involved in series of controversies over her scandalous quotes directed at the opposition. She was criticised over trying to incite violence in the country ahead of the general elections, to which the president’s wife responded that she is “a woman of peace” who hates violence.
