Why I shunned Rivers deputy Gov in P’Harcourt - Patience Jonathan


According to media reports, the first lady shunned the deputy Governor of Rivers State who came with other government officials to receive her at the airport in Rivers state on Sunday as she arrived in the state for a private visit to make arrangements for her late mum's burial. In a statement released yesterday, Mrs Jonathan explained that the reason she shunned the deputy governor and other state officials was because the governor of Rivers state, his wife and other top officials of the state didn't pay her a condolence visit when she lost her foster mother. Read the statement below...
The attention of the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, has been drawn to reports carried in some sections of the media alleging that top officials of the Rivers government, including the Deputy Governor Tele Ikuru who came to receive the First Lady, were shielded from Dame Jonathan on her arrival at Port Harcourt International Airport on Sunday, (18/08/2013). Some of the media reports went to the extent of alleging that Dame Jonathan “snubbed” the Deputy Governor.
