Patience Jonathan mocked Buhari on Wednesday,
March 4, during a PDP rally in Lokoja, Kogi state calling
him an old man whose brain had died completely.
The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode has
said that the First Lady, Patience Jonathan was right to
call the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives
Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari brain-dead.
Mrs Jonathan mocked Buhari on Wednesday, March 4,
during a PDP rally in Lokoja, Kogi state calling him an
old man whose brain had died completely.
“The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, was
absolutely right. To say that General Buhari is “brain
dead” is an understatement and to suggest that he is
suffering from dementia is nothing new,” Fani-Kayode
said in Abuja on March 5.
“The First Lady has spoken in a courageous and
forthright manner and, most important of all, she has
spoken the bitter truth. Instead of crying like spoilt little
brats and complaining, the APC and the Buhari
Campaign Organisation should live with that bitter truth
and leave her alone,” he added.
“She has every right to express herself in any way that
she deems fit and she is entitled to her opinion. This is
especially so given the fact that her husband, President
Goodluck Jonathan, is in the presidential race,” Fani-
The PDP spokesperson also accused Buhari of being
condescending to women.
“This is a man that said that he would scrap the office
of the First Lady if he is elected President. If he is not
ready to face public scrutiny and criticism for his often
times irresponsible, retrogressive, nonsensical and
asinine views, he should quit the presidential race and
consider retiring from politics,” Fani Kayode said
“Our counsel to the APC is as follows: leave the First
Lady alone or prepare yourselves for a relentless verbal
blitzkrieg, the likes of which you have never seen
before,” he added.
Members of the PDP, including Fani-Kayode and
Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State have repeatedly
accused Buhari of nursing a secret medical condition.
