I Never thought I’ll be First Lady – Patience Jonathan




The First Lady,Dame has revealed she was flown abroad for surgery during the election campaign period.She also thanked God for making her leave Aso Rock hale and Hearty,emphasizing she never thought she would be a First Lady.Speaking at the Farewell and Thanksgiving service at Aso Villa yesterday,Sunday,she said

“During the   last campaign period, the devil struck   again. I was in pain and was rushed to the hospital in January and the doctors told me, ‘mama, you have to go for a major operation now now.’

“What again? I asked. The campaign was still going on and I wondered how we were going to explain to Nigerians.You know that even when you go for medical check-up, they will be writing in newspapers, saying all sorts of things.I said my husband will continue with his campaign until the last day. That was how I went in for the first major operation (surgery) in the end of January.
“By God’s grace, I went for the operation (surgery) and came out. On my return from there,   I went straight to the campaign ground.They said to me when I was leaving the hospital: ‘mama, there is another bigger operation that you have to go in for again. This one will not be in this hospital. This hospital is too small for the type of operation you need when you come back. You have to go to a bigger hospital.’
“I said ‘ha! while   will you tear   my body again after I had done 12   operations within one month last year?
I said my God will see me through because he created me for a purpose. I told my prayer partner to continue praying for me. I said to myself that I will never be used   for a sacrifice.I was booked for the operation in a bigger hospital and I was asked to go back to Nigeria and return after the campaign. They gave me a date. When I went back, I paid for everything and just when I was   to be taken into the theatre, the doctors   said, ‘let’s check her again.’
