Ailing Patience Jonathan Can't Make It To UN General Assembly - Her Doctors

Patience Jonathan


Patience Jonathan's ailing conditions would restrain her from joining President Jonathan when he travels next week to New York City to attend this year’s session of the United Nations General Assembly. This was according to team of doctors attending to Nigeria's First Lady.


A presidency source reported that the president and his wife had hoped to be in New York together in order to quell speculations that Mrs. Jonathan’s health condition had turned dire. However, the source revealed that the president’s wife went through two relapse episodes during the week and had to be put under intensive care. “The doctors in Germany have informed us that she cannot – and should not – go on a long trip at this time,” said the source.

Another source also indicated that Mrs. Jonathan was unlikely to return to Nigeria this weekend as the Presidency had hoped.

Our  sources disclosed that it was now unclear how long Mrs. Jonathan would remain in a hospital in Wiesbaden, Germany. “The plan was to take her on the trip to the United Nations in order to silence critics and reporters that revealed that Madam was not on vacation but in a precarious medical state,” said one of the sources.

At the moment, the presidency has not made any official pronouncement on Mrs. Jonathan’s condition. President Jonathan, who last week cut short a state visit to Botswana has maintained total silence since the news broke out.

Meanwhile, President Jonathan will be accompanied on his New York by 11 ministers as well as the governors of Bauchi, Delta and Akwa Ibom. President Jonathan and his delegation are expected to arrive in New York on Monday.
