Patience Jonathan revealed yesterday that she left the public scene to attend to a pressing health condition that necessitated a 13th surgical operation.
According to the First Lady, a sharp pain on her side led to her leaving the country given that doctors had recommended an immediate surgery. She said she left the country secretly in January for Germany where her operation was conducted. She also said there was supposed to be another surgery just immediately after President Jonathan’s election loss to General Buhari, but following several tests in hospitals in Germany, it was discovered that she no longer needed surgery.
She attributed the act to God, upon which she burst into singing during her testimony yesterday, at the Aso Rock Villa chapel.
