Patience Jonathan: Why I Don’t Wan’t To Return To Aso Rock

Former First lady, Dame Patience Jonathan says she would decline if she is requested to return to the presidential villa to function as Nigerian First Lady.

In a viral video clip, Mrs Patience, who spoke on Friday at a public function, described her experience as the wife of the president of Nigeria as a “stressful” one.

“If you call me now for villa, I won’t go there. I won’t. Don’t you see how young I am? The stress is so much.”

“The stress of Nigeria is so much. If God manages to bring you out of it, you should glorify God and thank him. It is the Lord’s doing and it is marvellous in our eyes.

“He has taken you there once, why do you want to go there again? Me I won’t go oo!!!”

Daily Trust reports that the former president, Goodluck Jonathan exited the presidential villa in 2015 after losing the presidential election to Muhammadu Buhari.

In the buildup to the 2023 elections, Jonathan was linked to the presidential race under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

A group was said to have purchased the N100 million primary forms for him and he was pictured with Senator Abdullahi Adamu, former National Chairman of the party.

There were reports that Jonathan consulted widely on returning to the villa and he was encouraged to do so.

During her reign as the First Lady of Nigeria, she was popular for creating memes in her usual pidgin English such as “na only you waka come”.
