Patience Jonathan Pledges Support to Oluremi Tinubu
Former president Goodluck Jonathan’s wife, Dame Patience Jonathan, has pledged to support the First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, to move the country forward.
Jonathan made the assurance on Wednesday during a solidarity visit to the first lady at the presidential villa in Abuja.
She thanked the first lady for how far she has impacted the lives of Nigerian women.
You are one of the women that I look forward to because you can make Nigerian women proud,” Jonathan said. “I am here to encourage and support you because we are one country and our country must move forward.”
Jonathan also commended women groups for their support for President Bola Tinubu and his wife, and pleaded that they should maintain their support for the government to sustain the patriotic efforts.
“When we talk about presidency, we have come and left, it is your turn, we that left must support you to achieve what you are here for like we have achieved so that Nigeria will move forward,” she said.
“I use this opportunity to plead to the women of this country to support this government; she carried us along when she was a governor’s wife, now that she is a first lady, the sky is her limit.”
The first lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, commended Jonathan for her support and advice.
We thank God that she is here on a solidarity visit and for us to talk on how to move the nation forward,” she said. “I appreciate her visit, her support and all the tips she is always giving.”
Jonathan’s visit is a sign of solidarity between the two first ladies and a commitment to working together to move Nigeria forward.
