Patience Jonathan pays courtesy visit to Remi Tinubu, pledges support



On Wednesday, Dame Patience Jonathan, the former First Lady, graciously visited the current First Lady, Remi Tinubu, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja. During the visit, Jonathan expressed her commitment to aiding the First Lady’s efforts in advancing the nation, and she encouraged fellow women to do the same.

Jonathan extended her gratitude to the First Lady for her significant contributions to the betterment of Nigerian women’s lives.

She said it was imperative for her, as a former president’s wife, to also support and encourage Mrs. Tinubu on the things that would move the nation forward.

Mrs Jonathan commended women groups for their support for President Bola Tinubu and his wife and pleaded that they should maintain their support for the government to sustain the patriotic efforts.

“You are one of the women that I look up to because you can make Nigerian women proud. I am here to encourage and support you because we are one country and our country must move forward.

“Twenty-four hours, I am with you; call me anytime, any day, I will work with you for the country to move forward and to be better because it is our country. We have no other place to go.

“When we talk about the presidency, we have come and left, it is your turn, we that left must support you to achieve what you are here for like we have archived so that Nigeria will move forward.

“I use this opportunity to plead to the women of this country to support this government; she carried us along when she was a governor’s wife, and now that she is a First Lady, the sky is her limit.

The First Lady had earlier commended Mrs Jonathan for her support and advice.

“We thank God that she is here on a solidarity visit and for us to talk about how to move the nation forward. I appreciate her visit, her support, and all the tips she is always giving,’’ the First Lady said.
