Patience Jonathan, former first lady, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to call Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to order. Accusing Magu of being bent on destroying her family, the former president’s wife said she believes that she is being targeted for the role she played in the 2015 election.
In a statement sent to on Monday, Belema Meshack-Hart, chief press secretary to the former first lady, said despite campaigning against him in the presidential election, President Donald Trump did not move against Michelle Obama. President Buhari should be reminded that his wife also supported him in all the elections he contested against her husband, former President Jonathan, but Dr. Jonathan did not at any point in time, carry out personal vendetta or go after Buhari’s wife. Jonathan’s wife said she is the most vilified first lady in the history of Nigeria. She said it had got to the extent where all the “magnificent edifices in Abuja, Yenagoa or Port Harcourt” are presented to her.
