Recently, reliable sources in the presidency have confirmed to Sahara Reporters that Nigeria’s First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan (Mama Peace) was flown out to a German hospital for treatment. Last year, Sahara Reporters broke the news of Mrs Jonathan’s hospitalization in Germany for a series of serious health problems and it was initially denied by the presidency.
A source told this to a correspondent: “She was flown out about a week ago,” the source also added that he was not aware of the First Lady’s immediate ailment.
The first lady’s spokesman, had claimed last year that the president’s wife was not sick but had traveled abroad to rest after hosting a meeting of African First Ladies. However, Mrs. Jonathan herself later admitted that she had been gravely sick, crediting God with rescuing her from a comatose state.
However none of the sources at the presidency could tell how long Mrs. Jonathan would stay in the German hospital.
