The first lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dame Patience Jonathan, has taken a major swipe at the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) General Muhammadu Buhari saying his brain is dead, according to Naij report.
During the women presidential campaign rally held in Kogi state, on Tuesday, the first lady stated that Buhari is “unfit and too old to be the Nigeria’s president”, Daily Times reports.
“Wetin him dey find again? Him dey drag with him pikin mate,” she said in Pidgin English.
“Old man wey no get brain, him brain don die pata pata.”
She beckoned on Nigerian women to vote en masse for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) during the forthcoming presidential election.
Moved by the cheers of the crowd, the first lady sporadically sang to taunt her husband’s main challenger at this month’s presidential election:
“If you vote Buhari, na your prison; if you vote APC, na your wahala,” she sang.
“What is change? Why did you not change things when you were there? Is it now that you want to be doing the things you weren’t doing before?
“Jonathan looked at us and said women, I am giving you the position of the chief justice of this country. Okonjo-Iweala is a woman, Diezani is a woman. Seventy percent of his cabinet are women.
“He also gave us the opportunity to start enrolling for the regular combatant course at the NDA (Nigerian Defence Academy).
“He wants continuity because he has vowed to do more. He places Nigerians in his mind and if he says he will do this, he will do it. So what are we looking for? If we women of Nigeria don’t appreciate Goodluck and we are looking for bus conductor, it is left for us.”
