House of Representatives member, Abike Dabiri-Erewa has said that First Lady, Patience Jonathan is an embarrassment to Nigerians.

Mrs Dabiri-Erewa, who is the Chairman of the House Committee on Diaspora Affairs, also described Mrs Jonathan as the worst First Lady Nigeria has ever had.

The legislator spoke in response to a statement made by the First Lady describing Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, as brain-dead.

“Mrs. Jonathan is an embarrassment to the whole country. The only people shouting her praise or listening to her are the sycophants; outside them, nobody else does,” Dabiri-Erewa said.

“She is crude and unrefined. When you travel out of the country, Nigerians keep asking you how we came this bad,” she added.

Mrs Jonathan made the comments during a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally in Lokoja, Kogi State while asking supporters to vote for her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan and not Buhari.
