APC: Patience Jonathan's Making Empty Promises

The All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State has accused wife of the President, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, of making empty promises to the people.
It will be recalled that Mrs Jonathan spoke in Ado Ekiti, on Monday, during the rally of the women’s wing of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). In a statement by the State Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun, on Tuesday, the party noted that her speech lacked the grace of a First Lady.
Olatubosun said, “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 blasted Mrs. Jonathan for attacking the APC presidential candidate, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
“She was consistently painting Buhari 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.”
Olatubosun challenged the president’s wife to tell Ekiti people the benefits of SURE-P ‎she flaunted at the rally, saying the programme was just a bazaar for a few selfish party leaders without any benefit for the entire citizenry.
 “Fayose has a four-man cabinet running his government. Apart from the Secretary to the State Government, where are the other women Fayose has appointed?
“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,” Olatubosun explained.
Stressing that Ekiti people had made up their minds to vote Buhari, he added that ‎they had become wiser and would not vote a regime that did not hold any promise for their future.
