"Nobody can stop me from visiting Bayelsa" - First Lady, Patience Jonathan blasts youth groups

Wife of the President, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, on Thursday said nobody or group could threaten her if she decided to visit any part of the country.

Mrs. Jonathan, who spoke through her media assistant, Ayo Adewuyi, was reacting to statements by some youth groups threatening to disgrace her if she attends the grand rally of the Peoples Democratic Party in Yenagoa on February 5.

Two youth groups – Bayelsa Youth Vanguard and the Mangrove Boys of Bayelsa – had, in different statements, issued in Abuja and Yenagoa, barred the President’s wife from accompanying her husband to the rally in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital.

The youths, who accused Mrs. Jonathan of instigating political crisis in the state and working against Governor Seriake Dickson, had vowed to embarrass and disgrace her at the rally.

But the spokesman for the President’s wife described the groups as faceless.

He said Mrs. Jonathan would not be cowed into avoiding any part of the country because of threats from such groups.
He said, “We will not descend so low to be joining issues with faceless groups.

“The fact however remains that the First Lady as the wife of the President cannot be threatened by anybody or any group if she decides to visit any part of the country.”
