Nigeria’s First Lady, Patience Jonathan has likened the All Progressives Congress (APC) to expired drugs.

Mrs. Jonathan also criticized the APC for claiming that it would fight corruption as if it’s not corrupt.

The First Lady made the statements during a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Women’s Presidential Rally in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

“Akwa Ibom people, judge o. Because we are not here for lies. We are not here for propaganda. Because their own number one campaign is corruption. As if them are not corrupt. They are not corrupt,” Mrs. Jonathan said.

“What do you call corruption? He has a house. You, are you living outside? Are you living in the forest? It’s corruption. In abroad, if a young boy works so hard and buy a copter, we praise the boy. But in Nigeria, if a young boy works so hard and buy a copter, we say he’s corrupt. Why?” she added.

She also urged her supporters to vote the PDP in order to avoid going to prison.

“A bird at hand is worth a million in the bush. Nigerian women, let us shine our eyes. Women of Nigeria, are you ready to go to prison? Are you ready to go and give your father food in the prison? It is not our portion. We reject it,” Mrs Jonathan said.

“Akwa Ibom State is a PDP state. It’s not for expired drugs, because APC cannot heal you, outdated drugs cannot heal you. Let them call it any name. Just like as my husband younger brother (Governor Akpabio) have said, they will continue changing name until they will reach Ebola. And they will call it Ebola,” she added.

 “So let them continue changing their name. If they fail this time, because I know they have failed, you will hear they will change their name again. They will change it and answer another name,” the First Lady said.

Mrs. Jonathan had earlier been criticized for urging her supporters to stone members of the APC.
