In Ibadan, First Lady Predicts Jonathan’s Victory


The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, has predicted a massive victory for President Goodluck Jonathan in Saturday’s presidential poll.

Speaking in Ibadan at the Peoples Democratic Party Women Presidential Campaign Rally in Oyo State, Mrs. Jonathan told the women to further liberate themselves by voting for Jonathan.

Dame Jonathan, called Mama Peace, said over 50 percent of appointive positions at the Federal level are now held by women.

President Jonathan is pitched against All Progressives Congress candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari in the tight presidential poll.

She said Jonathan had revived the train system in the country, explaining that when her children yearned to see train service, she took them to London so they can see train and take it to Paris.

She, however, said “Nigerians don’t need to travel to see train: they will be here and see train. President Jonathan has brought back the train system”

Mrs. Jonathan said both President Jonathan and his deputy Namadi Sambo are good materials who would take the country to greater heights.

The PDP governorship candidate, Senator Teslim Folarin, urged the people of the state to use the umbrella, the symbol of the party to pull votes for PDP in the election.

Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory and President Jonathan’ s Campaign Coordinator in the state, Oloye Olajumoke Akinjide, claimed the people had seen through “the lies, propaganda of the APC and they would demonstrate it by voting PDP on March 28 and April 11.”

She claimed there is no vacancy in Aso Rock as Jonathan would be re-elected.

Those who also spoke at the rally held at the Liberty Stadium, Ibadan were PDP National Woman Leader, Mrs. Kema Chikwe, Oluwakemi, wife of Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko, Angela, wife of PDP governorship candidate in the state, Mrs. Bekky Igwe and wife of former governor Peter Obi of Anambra State.
