It was a day of literal pain for the All Progressive Congress (APC) as the wife of President Jonathan, Dame Patience Jonathan told Nigerians on how the APC will be a bad party if elected into power.
Speaking in Igbo language at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Imo State, Owerri, Patience castigated the APC for saying they will scrap the office of the unconstitutional first lady. According to her, it shows that APC does not respect women. She told the mammoth crowd to vote away a party that sees women as illiterates.
She stated that her husband, President Jonathan has done well as a President and therefore should be elected again. She quoted seventeen ministerial positions as been given to women in Jonathan. According to her, the APC does not mean well for Nigeria, especially since their Presidential Candidate, Muhammadu Buhari was in power as a military ruler but never appointed a single woman into government.
On his part, the President said his new administration if elected will be geared towards the youth, as he will empower them more. He pleaded with the people to vote in Mr Emeka Ihedioha as the next governor of Imo State. He stated that he will not be happy to work with a governor from another party other than a PDP own.
