First Lady ,Mrs Patience Jonathan has distanced herself from the crisis rocking the All Progressive Grand Alliance,APGA. An online news report on Friday quoted factional Chairman, Chief Victor Umeh describing how he received assurances of support from the First Lady in Abuja, regarding a matter before the Court of Appeal, Awka, over the disputed leadership of the party.
But Ayo Osinlu ,media aide to the First Lady said Friday night “nothing is farther from the truth, as the First Lady did not, at any time, meet with Chief Umeh on any account, least of all the crisis in APGA.”
“Indeed, the First Lady is not in anyway interested in APGA or its internal crisis, neither is she associated with any of the stakeholders in the crisis rocking the party. She therefore takes strong exception to her being dragged into the mud-slinging between the war-lords of APGA” her media aide said.
Osinlu added “The First Lady remains a strong advocate of the rule of law, as that is the only guarantee that everyone, whether weak or strong, can legitimately expect to benefit from justice and equity.
“She will therefore not be found in any activity, or in the company of anyone seeking to pervert the course of justice.
Osinlu’s remarks came on the heels of a story on Friday insinuating that the First Lady, Patience Goodluck Jonathan is “the unseen force” behind a faction of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), in the protracted crisis rocking the party.
