The Ekiti State Branch of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described First lady, Patience Jonathan as a comedian.
The Ekiti APC also said that Mrs Jonathan and the State Governor, Ayo Fayose only entertained their supporters during a March 16 rally in the state.
The party made the comments via a statement released on Tuesday, March 17, by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun.
The statement reads:
“Throughout her speech, she manifested an image of a village masquerade providing a momentary comic relief to a poverty ravaged community not in a hurry for socio-economic salvation.”
“You would have thought that the First Lady would list her husband’s achievements in Ekiti State and then give the people some hope that her husband would build upon those achievements.”
“But she engaged in a duet with her host and soul mate, Governor Ayo Fayose, in an empty campaign comedy to a thoroughly dazed enlightened Ekiti people. It was a perfect duet by two comedians that one does not need any counsel that Nigeria must be rescued from the captivity of the costumed ‘people of power’ without responsibility.”
“She was consistently painting Buhari as a man that would herd Nigerians into jail without committing any crime whereas Buhari only insisted that criminals during his coming administration would go to jail. She said she was not ready to prepare food for Fayose in jail. Inadvertently, Mrs. Jonathan was telling Nigerians that Fayose is a candidate for the prison if Buhari wins.”
“Mrs. Jonathan only came to Ekiti to entertain in a political theatre full of deceits and false props constructed by Fayose for maximum personal profits.
The First Lady also described the APC as poison during the rally and urged her supporters not to vote for the party.
