Nnewi — Wife of the President, Dame Patience Jonathan, yesterday in Onitsha described the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the name of an expired drug already rejected by Nigerians.
Dame Jonathan said the train service, the analog former President and APC presidential candidate could not repair when he was in power was what her husband has repaired.
Describing APC as an unsteady party that was always changing from one name to another, Mrs. Jonathan said the party would die its final death on March 28, 2015, presidential election when Nigerians would vote her husband into office.
“They have changed their name again, very unsteady party, this time it is APC, the name of an analog expired drug Nigerians rejected because of its ineffectiveness, they will change name again to Ebola and then, they will die their final death, Saturday March 28 will mark the end and final death of APC because they will be disgraced again by Nigerians who have always rejected them,” she said
She described the APC presidential standard bearer as analog, against digital PDP and urged Nigerians not to vote APC, being a backward party that would not offer them any reasonable thing.
According to her, the opposition party will instead, destroy all the things President Jonathan and his predecessor had built.
She said: “Before, we were using typewriter to type and it took all our time, today we are using computer to type and it is saving our time and energy, why should we go back to typewriter and leave computer, we must move forward. We cannot leave digital stage of life and go back to the analogue stage, God forbid.”
She reminded Anambra and South East women that in 2011, they made her proud as one of their own, and told them that she was expecting more from them since she and her husband never forgot them after the elections.
‘’Remember what Jonathan did for us during the burial of late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, he made us proud and ensured that he was given a befitting burial and this is the time to pay him back, by voting massively for him to ensure that some of the projects he started in Anambra State and in South East in general, like the second Niger Bridge are completed.
“If you vote for APC all the projects President Jonathan started will be abandoned, it is their way; they do not build, but they know how to destroy that is why their Deputy Govornor and their members are decamping to PDP, you have to be careful with that party that is comfortable in jailing husband and wife for no justifiable offence,” Mrs. Jonathan said.
She said that the welfare of women and their children was upper most in her mind, adding that the government of President Jonathan would fight to increase affirmative action of the PDP government to 50 per cent from its present 35 per cent.
She said: “Do not vote for the presidential candidate that does not have regards for women; when he was Head of State, he refused to let Nigerians know his wife until recently when he was reminded by PDP women that women are no more for the kitchen alone, and he hurriedly decided to bring her out.”
Also speaking, wife of former governor of Anambra State, Dame Margaret Peter Obi and PDP Director of Women Mobilisation, Mrs. Bekky Igweh, said, Dame Jonathan was not supposed to campaign in the South East in general because she and her husband had done enough to get their votes.
She urged the women and their children to vote massively for President Jonathan.
