I Was Flown Out For Surgery During campaigns – Patience Jonathan


Wife of the President,   Patience Jonathan, on Sunday disclosed that she battled with another round of ill-health   during the re-election campaigns of her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan. Mrs Jonathan, who was flown abroad about two years ago on health grounds, said the latest   was so severe   that she had to be sneaked out of the country to Germany in January for a   major surgery.

She spoke during a farewell service in honour of the Jonathan family at the Aso Villa Chapel. The President’s wife said before she left the German hospital after the operation, she was billed for another in a bigger hospital immediately after the elections but that God miraculously healed her.

She said after her husband lost his re-election bid, she returned to Germany for the surgery. According to her, she was about to be taken into the theatre when doctors decided to carry out another round of checks on her. Like her previous health challenge about two years ago,   Mrs. Jonathan   did not disclose the nature of the last ailment.
