Due to her long absence from public functions, the Presidency has issued a statement on the whereabouts of First Lady, Patience Jonathan in order to address widespread concerns.

According to the Presidency, Mrs Jonathan is currently in The Republic of Congo to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the launch of the Congo Assistance Foundation.

The foundation is the brainchild of Congolese first lady, Madam Antoinette Sassou-Nguesso.

The update on Mrs Jonathan’s location was provided via a statement released by her media aide, Ayo Adewuyi.

It reads:

“First Lady, Dame Patience Faka Jonathan is in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, joining other African First Ladies for the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Congo Assistance Foundation, an NGO of Congolese First Lady, Madam Antoinette Sassou-Nguesso.”

 The First Ladies of Benin Republic, Senegal, Mali, Tchad, Niger, Guinea Conakry are also in Brazzaville for the grand finale of the week-long programmes during which a National Center for Sickle Cell disease was inaugurated.”

“Dame Patience Jonathan was received on arrival by Nigeria’s Ambassador to Congo Brazzaville, Princess ‎Onipede in company of top Congolese officials.”

Mrs Jonathan has remained unusually silent ever since her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan lost the March 28 presidential elections.
