Patience Jonathan Cries Out

patience-jonathan-1Dame Patience Ibifaka Jonathan, wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria is very bitter with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) presently. She revealed that the EFCC is plotting to steal her hard-earned $15million (about N6.3billion). She issued a statement to that effect through her media aide, Chima Osuji: “This is a clear evidence of the desperation of the prosecution to pull down the former First Lady and confiscate her hard-earned money.”

“It is an irony. it was the former First Lady who went to court for the repatriation of her confiscated money when she realised that the EFCC and its co-travellers were playing politics with this issue after she  had come out publicly to say that the said money belongs to her and that she has all evidence to prove the sources of her money. Up till this very moment, EFCC has refused to interrogate or invite her for questioning.”

“The biggest twist in court on Thursday, 15th September, 2016 was that the fourth to seventh defendants pleaded guilty to all the 15-count charge. It is clear that these unknown faces were agents of the EFCC, who have been stage-managed and tutored to come to court to complicate the case as a strategy to confiscate her money.”

“Mrs. Jonathan is not a director, shareholder, promoter and/or participant in any of the four companies now under trial, and that she was the sole signatory to all the said accounts, contrary to the fabrication that she used her driver and cook as proxies.”
