The special adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Reuben
Abati has denied reports indicating that the First Lady, Dame Patience
Jonathan was indisposed and flown abroad for proper medical attention.

While
responding to reports which emanated from an online news platform,
Abati said the story “was a rumour and there is nothing like that”.


According
to reports from the first lady’s spokesman, Ayo Osinlu, Dame Patience
Jonathan did actually travel abroad, but she was only away to take a
“moment’s rest” given that she has not taken a rest since President
Jonathan’s election last year.

“If you look at her itinerary in
August, you will be wondering how she was able to accomplish that. In
the course of this week she will be back home. But remember, it all
depends on her plans,” he concluded.

In earlier reports, the
first lady suffered from food poisoning and was transported in an air
ambulance to Wisbanden in Germany for proper medical attention.

information emanating from the seat of government.
