Patience Jonathan Makes Shocking Revelation


Former first lady, Patience Jonathan whose bank accounts have been frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has disclosed the source of funds in her frozen accounts.

Patience Jonathan claims that two of the accounts belonged to her late mother, Madam Charity Fyneface Oba. Counsel to the first lady, Charles Ogboli who disclosed this on behalf of his client on the Channels Television discussion programme, Sunrise, said that only three of the five accounts in dispute could be traced to the former first lady and her mum.

Ogboli dismissed suggestions that Patience Jonathan holds five accounts, insisting that they are three accounts. “The First Lady was the signatory of one account, and the mother was a signatory to the other two accounts,” he said. “These accounts were not on a company’s name; it is on a personal data name of the First Lady. If you check, the BVN showed clearly on a personal name. “And if you go through the BVN, it shows that it is her personal account; it is not connected with the companies facing trial. “The First Lady was never privy to the companies standing trial. The money that is in the account ($5 million) should be left to the First Lady.”



Ogboli said the first lady between 2013 and 2014 kicked against the use of unknown companies to open accounts for her by the former senior special assistant to the former President, Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel.

He said: “What I am trying to say is that the domestic servant, Dudafa, who was asked to open accounts, went ahead to use a company’s account which the First Lady discovered and said I am not part of this. “She said ‘I am not a director of this company, neither am I a shareholder. I did not present any certificate of incorporation; I didn’t ask them to open any account using a company or companies’. The discovery was made between 2013 and 2014 and immediately she kicked against it. “ So, you don’t link her with the company that she does not know anything about.”

Meanwhile, the Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) has attacked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over what it termed “deliberate witch-hunt” of former President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Dame Patience. He said it was unacceptable and illegal to place the former first family on media trial without following due process. Dame Patience, he said like most former First Ladies made her money from gifts and gratifications adding that there was no law against such gestures.

Similarly, the Niger Delta Youths (NDY) in conjunction with Civil Liberties Organizations (CLO) and other voluntary youths bodies on Thursday, September 23, staged a protest in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State. The protesters are against the victimization of former first lady Dame Patience Jonathan by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The group is calling on the EFCC to leave the former First lady alone.
