First Lady, Patience Jonathan has denied the allegation that she receives $1 million monthly from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate for Rivers State, Nyesom Wike.

Governor Rotimi Amaechi had earlier alleged that Wike was making the monthly payments to Mrs Jonathan to gain political favour.

The First Lady has however described the allegation as “ridiculous and laughable.”

“The allegation that the First Lady is collecting money from Chief Wike monthly is laughable and ridiculous” Mrs Jonathan told Punch on Monday, March 23, via her media aide, Ayo Adewuyi.

“You cannot but hear things like this from someone who is home alone,” Adewuyi added.

Wike has also denied the claim attributing it to an attempt by Amaechi to cover up his own corrupt dealings.
