Patience Jonathan's Health: 1st Lady scheduled to return to Nigeria today?

Patience Jonathan has been scheduled to return to the country today (Thursday) after about six of undergoing treatment abroad according to SaharaReporters.

The report said a presidential jet was scheduled to fly out of Abuja on Wednesday night to bring back President Goodluck Jonathan’s wife home.

SaharaReporters quoted presidency sources on Wednesday as saying that the wife of the President would return to the country early today barring any unexpected developments,.

According to the report, Patience was flown overseas nearly six weeks ago after developing complications from a cosmetic procedure she had undertaken in Dubai.

It further said that upon returning to Nigeria from Dubai, the President’s wife was allegedly flown to Germany in an air ambulance following an emergency which was allegedly diagnosed her with “food poisoning”.

SaharaReporters said its investigation revealed that her condition was more complicated and precarious. Among others, in the early stages she lost her power of speech for four days.

Her spokesman, Ayo Osinlu, had earlier told journalists that the President’s wife was only resting abroad after the stress of hosting African First Ladies recently.

Jonathan on Saturday visited his wife in Germany in company with two of their children.

The visit was aired on the Nigerian Television Authority on Sunday evening.

In the short footage, Patience was seen to be in high spirit as she took photographs with the children as well as her husband and members of his delegation.
