Wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, may have embarked on another medical trip to Germany.
Sahara Reporters, quoting two presidential sources said the president’s wife was flown out of the country discreetly.
One source, the medium claimed, disclosed that Mrs. Jonathan had kept a low profile several weeks before her movement to a German hospital.
“She has not been in good health for a while now,” a source close to the Jonathan family reportedly said.
After a medical trip in 2013, which her spokesman denied, Patience later returned to the country to admit that she went to a German hospital for treatment.
The agency also quoted another source as saying, “Nigerians are paying for her treatment and deserve the courtesy of being informed about her movement.”
The Presidency, however, denied the report.
The First Lady’s spokesman, Mrs. Ayotunde Adesugba, told SUNDAY PUNCH on the telephone that there was no truth in the report.
Adesugba said she left the President’s wife in the Presidential Villa a few minutes before speaking with our correspondent at around 9pm on Saturday.
“There is no truth in the report. I just left her in the office now,” she said.
Mrs. Jonathan had on Wednesday played host to the Chief Executive Officer of Water and Sanitation for Africa, Mr. Idrissa Doucoure, who sought her support on ways to improve sanitation on the continent on behalf of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation.
