‎Probe all ex-First Ladies or leave Patience Jonathan alone, Group tells Buhari | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

An Abuja-based anti-corruption movement, The Integrity Group, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to probe Nigeria’s former first ladies or stop the “seeming witch-hunt” of the country’s immediate-past first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.


Warning that the continued ‘media trial’ of the ex-president’s wife could trigger off more violent reactions in the Niger Delta, the group said the onus is on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC to prove its case rather than asking Mrs Jonathan to explain the source of her wealth.

At a news conference addressed by its Executive Director, Livingstone Wechie, the group contended that; “No Nigerian under any law, including Patience Jonathan is under any obligation to explain how he/she made his/her money. If the EFCC thinks anybody stole money, they should by evidence show how and wherefrom the money was stolen.

“The cumulative value of the monies in the Skye Bank account that Mrs Jonathan claims is less than $10 million. The report credited to the EFCC that the monies were in excess of $30 million is completely false, malicious and misleading and this is deliberate. The EFCC is challenged to provide public evidence of its claim of $31 million lodged in Skye Bank”.

The group added that, “this attack on Patience and Goodluck Jonathan may spark up avoidable security problems in the old Eastern Nigeria and we are willing to support Mr President in averting same.

“As such, our message is, arrest and prosecute all former first families including their aides and seize all their assets and money or leave Goodluck and Patience Jonathan alone and restore all their seized assets”.

  3. Sheer stupidity and arrogance. How can a sane group talk like this? Even if you must talk, not in the open of such manner. This is just setting a very bad and terrible presidence. Totally and absolutely wrong.

  5. This shows the level of integrity of the integrity group. They should have asked Buhari to start the probing from Nnamdi Azikwe period

  6. "leave Mrs Jonathan alone"? What exactly is wrong with Nigerians? Someone has in her possession millions of dollars of ill-acquired money and you are asking that she be left alone? my goodness, this country has truly gone to hell. patience Jonathan should be tried, and if found guilty, thrown in jail pure and simply. Whether she was first, second, or tenth lady is irrelevant. this leave her alone attitude is why the country has been consumed by corruption. Try her, and jail her stiffly if found guilty.
