Patience Jonathan: I Was Dead For 7 Days, God Woke Me Up – Friends Sold My Properties Hoping I Won’t Return

Feb 17, 2013 – Nigeria’s First Lady Patience Jonathan Died For 7 Days, God Woke Me Up – Friends Sold My Properties Hoping I Won’t Return

Here is a serious warning to those who think NaijaGists na joker. When we first broke the news, critics said it’s a lie.

In another vindication episode, Patience Jonathan herself made the confession today in Abuja that she actually died for more than a week during a critical surgical operation in Germany.

According to the Premium Times report, the First Lady of Nigeria actually died physically for more than seven days.

Mrs. Jonathan, who spoke at a special thanksgiving service at the Aso Rock Chapel where the first family worships, said she underwent multiple surgical operations and at some point her doctors lost hope after she “passed out for more than a week.

“It was not an easy experience for me,” Mrs. Jonathan told the congregation which included senior government officials. “I actually died. I passed out for more than a week. My intestine and tummy were opened.”

“I am not Lazarus but my experience was similar to his. My doctors said all hope was lost. It was God himself in His infinite mercy that said I will return to Nigeria. God woke me up after seven days,” she narrated.

Mrs. Jonathan’s remarks at the church service, was the first time the presidency would admit the First Lady was seriously sick as widely speculated in 2012.

Mrs. Jonathan was on admission at the Horst Schmidt Klinik in Germany for an undisclosed ailment although multiple reports suggested she was treated for lungs and abdominal problems.

While the news circulated, the presidency ensured an anxious public remained in the dark about her condition, repeatedly insisting Mrs. Jonathan traveled for a “deserved rest”.

The thanksgiving service was delayed for two months, after the initial schedule was moved due to the helicopter crash deaths of former governor of Kaduna state, Patrick Yakowa, and the former National Security Adviser, Owoeye Azazi.

President Goodluck Jonathan, ministers and top government functionaries attended the event on Sunday.

During a stirring session, the First Lady narrated how she went through “hell” while in hospital and said she has dedicated her life to serving the needy.

“It is the Lord’s doing that I returned alive,” she said. “When God says yes, nobody can say no. People are always afraid of operation (surgery). But in my own case, while my travail lasted, I was begging for it after the third operation because I was going to the theatre every day. It was God who saw me through. I did eight or nine operations within one month.”

While she lay dying in Germany, friends and associates who hoped she will not be making it back to Nigeria with life, scrambled for her properties, selling those they could,” Mrs. Jonathan said.

She accused some of those she trusted of leaking information to the public that she had passed on.

“I know that some people somehow leaked the information that I was dead. They are people that I trust and rely on. To them, I was dead and I would never return to the country alive,” she said. “Some of them even sold my things off. “I won’t say everything here.”

She said she believed she had not completed her assignment on earth, which was why God spared her.

“It was not an easy one. The day I came back, I said God I have nothing to say, I offer myself to you. I will be doing things that will touch the lives of the less privilege. God gave me a second chance because I reached there. He knew I had not completed the assignments He gave me that was why I was sent back,” the First Lady said. (Premium Times)

    What do she meant she passed out? Was she brain death or she was in a vegetative state? Nigerian government officials should stop making a fool of themselves, instead of equipping and utilizing Nigerian hospitals, they are running overseas looking for help they can eventually get at home. Pathetic.Yes, God saves her life but have she changes her old ways of doing things?

    If you are not educated you can not deferentiate between death and state of coma during surgical operation. Of course you can not be alive during surgical operation, multiple one for that matter. All i have to say is that if they dont amend their ways God will continue to inflict terrible diseases on them until they would eventually pass on. Millions are jobless after years of graduation yet you careless only to divert 4billion Naira to yourself. God is watching, you can only have peace except if those pregnant women in my village can freely gain access to free medical service. Repent from excessive looting and cater for the needy and not in your own style anyway.

    MRS JONATHAN, WHY DID YOU GO ABROAD FOR MEDICATION? You should have told your hubby to set up more hospitals in Nigeria. The poor are failing to get proper medication and yet politicians fly abroad for treatment. In the eyes of God we are all equal.

    We give God the praise. God brought you back for a reason, apparently you don’t even know why he brought you back, but am sure it must surely be fulfilled….
