A source in the Presidency has confirmed to EkekeeeDotcom that the wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, Dame Patience Jonathan, was flown to Germany yesterday (Monday) for a ‘routine medical check-up’.
Mrs Jonathan had disappeared from the radar for weeks sometime last year, sparking rumours that her health was in critical condition. She returned to the country on October 14, 2012 from Germany and denied she was ever admitted into any hospital, as she sought to quell several online reports to the contrary at the time. Days later in a presidential media chat, her husband, Dr Jonathan had to admit that she was indeed ill.
Mrs Jonathan was last publicly seen at the interdenominational service held as part of activities marking this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day at the Ecumenical Centre, Abuja, last Sunday.
