Thursday December 8, 2016 – Money Laundering: Patience Jonathan Writes House Of Representatives Over EFCC Harassment, Calls For Urgent Intervention

Ex-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s wife, Patience yesterday sought the help of House of representatives over what she termed harassment by EFCC operatives.

In the petition laid down before the House yesterday, Mrs Jonathan claimed that the agency infringed her fundamental Human Rights.

A PDP member of the House from Delta State, Mr Idisi Lovette submitted the petition on behalf of Jonathan’s wife.

Idisi, while conveying the complaints of Mrs. Jonathan to the House, said under the Nigerian constitution, mere allegations did not amount to guilt until a proper conviction by a competent court of law.

He added, “This petition is in line with Section 36 where every citizen is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Mr. Speaker, the constant harassment of the former first lady is in a petition emanating from her that was sent to my office.

“With the leave of the House, I seek your permission to lay the petition before the House.”

The Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, referred the petition to the House Committee on Public Petitions for hearing.

It is expected that the former President’ wife will come to the National Assembly when invited, to defend the petition.

The key issue raised by the groups on behalf of Jonathan was that the EFCC had frozen her accounts and those of some of her close associates on account of corruption allegations.

They noted that some of the affected individuals were not under investigation by the anti-graft agency, but the agency still froze their accounts.

Part of the document read, “A simple cost benefit analysis of the EFCC’s current approach would reveal that it is harming this government’s strategic interest far more than the brief publicity it gets from its current modus operandi…

“We are urging you to caution and rein in the EFCC to operate within the confines of its enabling laws, lest it becomes victim of the corrupting influence of absolute power.

  1. doesn’t she know that Saraki himself is struggling to save himself from corruption case against him. common Madam wake up to reality, and this is to confirm to you that your hubby is a weakly.

  2. This illiterate woman has brought more than enough shame and ridicules to her husband than any other First Lady since Nigerian independence. she has no shame, thief woman begging another shameless thief to rescue her so that the federal government could release billions of naira stolen from the people’s money. She is the first Nigerian First Lady ever directly involved in looting, embezzlement, and money laundering operations in the highest office. She is a total disgrace to womanhood, and to the nation at large. I wonder what would all these Nigerian morons and vagabonds in political offices across the nation will do with billions of dollars stolen from the national and state treasures. Awon Ole, Olosa, Jaguda, Onyoshi, and Barawo bansa.

  3. Patiens if you was tiff money make you bring am out. I am dey poor. Sometimes I am not eat and you are follow cause my wahala. So make you no de worry pipul. Saraki is your follow tiff for the followship.

  4. This woman is a big jester. You wrote a petition to Saraki who is also under the investigation of EFCC. Fighting EFCC will further reveal your ignorancy about money laundery. EFCC knew all your tricks and the agency is ready to give you a big surprise if your life.

    Do you think you are still relevant? You are just an ex- First Lady nothing more. Madam Umblella you better tread it softly so that you don’t bite more than you can chew. Your case is in the court already, if the court found that you legitmaly own this Billions of Dollars, your money will be remitted back into your account which I really doubt you will ever get back.
    So let this agency do its work ok! Everybody is starving to death while you are playing with Billions of Nigerians money and you call yourself a mother. A mother who ever cares if her children eat or not.
