AS JONATHAN BEGS NIGERIANS FOR FORGIVENESS
Wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, Dame Patience Faka Jonathan has revealed that an ailment she has been battling since 2012, which required a major operation disappeared immediately after her husband lost the 2015 Presidential election.
She spoke yesterday at the Sunday service at the Aso Villa Chapel, the last one she and her husband would attend before the 29 May inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Patience said she was due for a major operation after the election. But after her husband’s defeat in the election, further tests carried out in hospitals abroad showed that she was healthy and no longer required any operation.
She however disclosed that she went through a major operation abroad in between campaigns in January. Although Mrs. Jonathan never disclosed the nature of her illness, she was reportedly battling ovarian cancer.
Patience thanked God for making it possible for her and her husband to leave office healthy and alive.
