Report gathered that, Patience Jonathan, wife of Nigeria’s President, Goodluck Jonathan, who is campaigning for the re-election of her husband, has avoided the northern part of the country following her hate speeches against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, General Muhammadu Buhari.
Instead of the First Lady leading the campaign team, wife of the Vice President, Hajiya Amina Namadi Sambo, has been having a huge task standing in for Patience Jonathan.
Patience was absent in Minna, Niger State capital and Adamawa State during the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, campaigns recently.
PDP stalwarts in the north are worried about Patience and Femi-Fanikayode’s hate campaigns and the possible backlash in the north is what Patience is trying to avoid.
Jibrin Aminu, a stalwart of the PDP was quoted as saying: “I think we have a problem, some issues to clear up as fast it we could. We had Fani-Kayode to contend with over hate speeches and advertorials, and recently the First Lady who described the opposition presidential aspirant as ‘brain dead’ to worry about. And as party faithful, we deem it necessary not to allow her go to the north for the rallies, you don’t know what will happen.”
