Patience Jonathan Hurriedly Flown Out To GermanyFeatures, National, Patience Faka Jonathan, Politics Tuesday, January 15, 2013
This development comes less than 24 hours after SaharaReporters revealed that she was billed to depart for Spain to attend to her health.
There is no official word from the presidency regarding her trip. Her principal media aide Ayo Osinlu told SaharaReporters by phone that he couldn’t tell of her movements because he was not in Abuja at the moment.
In August 2012, Mrs. Jonathan was airlifted to Wiesbaden, Germany, where she spent several weeks in a hospital for an undisclosed ailment.
The presidency did not confirm her condition or whereabouts throughout the period. She returned to Nigeria on October 14 and denied having been hospitalized in Germany or having any terminal condition.
“I don’t even know that hospital they are talking about,” she said. “I do not have any terminal illness or cosmetic surgery.”
