The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described Nigeria’s First Lady, Patience Jonathan as a ‘crude woman’ in response to recent comments she made regarding the party’s Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.

Mrs. Jonathan, during a rally in Lokoja, Kogi State, described Buhari as an old man whose brain was already dead.

She also mocked him for contesting elections with his child’s contemporary.

The APC, in a statement released by the spokesperson for its campaign organization, Garba Shehu described Mrs. Jonathan’s remarks as insulting.

“It is not only insulting for Mrs. Jonathan to describe Buhari as “brain-dead, it is also demeaning of her status as the President’s wife to speak in the manner with which she did,” Shehu said.

He added that it was “discourteous and inexcusable for a wife of any President with a modicum of decency to make such a false and infantile pronouncement about the health status of another man on account of politics,” he added.

The statement reads further:

“The APCPCO similarly observed that much as indecent and disgraceful as the outbursts of Mrs. Jonathan was in an attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of Nigerians about her husband’s incompetence to lead the country, it is typical of the PDP’s modus operandi to confuse Nigerians with mundane issues instead of the issues of corruption, for which her husband has achieved an unbeaten record; his appalling lack of capacity to secure life and property of citizens and a glaring incompetence in dealing with the challenges facing the country.”

Mrs. Jonathan had also, during another rally in Calabar, Cross River state, urged supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stone members of the APC.
