July 13, 2013 – Patience Jonathan Blasts Prof Wole Soyinka “You’re An Embarrassment To Nigeria”

……Wole Soyinka is a good old professor – Patience Jonathan

The First Lady of Nigeria, Dame Patience Jonathan has replied Professor Wole Soyinka who called her a domestic appendage over Rivers State House of Assembly crisis on Friday.

According to her spokesperson, Ayo Osinlu, the wife of Nigeria’s first unpopular president Jonathan, Dame Patience said Wole Soyinka betrayed the moral duty that  expected him, as a respected member of the society, to carefully consider all shades of issues that informed his opinions on any matter.

The statement further states;

“Unfortunately, Soyinka betrayed moral duty in his recent diatribe against Mrs. Patience Jonathan.“Of course, this would not be the first  time he would reach out against the First Lady, usually from  self-righteously indignant lecterns.“In this particular instance, his  verdict was that Mrs. Jonathan was ‘stoking the crisis currently rocking  her home state of Rivers…’, and thereupon asked Mr. President to  caution his wife.

“The good, old Prof. reminds one of the  truth that indeed, most of the giants on the street are men of like  passions like everyone else. Worse still, most of them are actually  standing on clay feet and would fail the test of a gentle push.“Otherwise, who would have believed that  the social, civil, constitutional and sundry rights crusader Prof.  would maintain a safe distance from the heart of an activity that is a  potential threat to the peace, security and safety of the people of a  state, then collect exaggerated stories and jaundiced perspectives from  familiar propagandists and character assassins, and promptly summon the  media to a “state of the nation” address.

“It’s an embarrassment to his throng of  admirers and followers, that a sage of Prof. Soyinka’s status, who used  to be a gauge of public morality in this nation, would lend himself to a  propaganda of high drive, to save a governor who elected to launch into  a river without applicable survival skills.”Mrs. Jonathan argued that the  calculation was to attack the President and pull to pieces anyone  associated with him, as a strategy for attracting public sympathy to the  “clear underdog.”She said Soyinka was only contributing to the project when he claimed that she was Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s problem.

    What Soyinka said about Mrs. Jonathan is absolutely true. She is a total disgrace to the nation. Her reply to Professor Wole Soyinka shows that she lacks respect for elders. That rejoider to Prof., was written by another person. She can not construct good sentence, nor can she speak well.

    Patience should leave prof alone. Whoever wrote the article am sure our first lady lacks the intellectual guts to challenge Prof Soyinka to a fight.

    U mrs first lady is embarrase to Nigeria not Wole,cos i see no reason a president wife will want to rule with her husband as same time,only in Nigeria.and go back to ur name as married house wife or find another job as groundmother,not ruleing for office with ur husband.

    People like patience should learn from the mistakes of her husband challenging proff Wole Soyinka to a popularity contest could prove more unpopular than the pardon granted Alaghmesiya.patience is the real disgrace.

    Can we be honest for once and see issues the way it should. No matter the short coming of our first lady, that does not change her status and every good Nigerian should accord her that respect, so lets start that now.

    I wonder hw dis bitch, addressing an elderly man like dis. Dis depete her home atitude, and so recalcitrant to her useless husband, who can nt even control a family, let alone a country, as a result of their gross incompetency and illogical to face realities. Dis is a total deformity and disgrace from “Dane patient” to entire humanlity, and she doese nt surpose to exist among humans, because she lacks d qualities of humans. I rest my case.

    If these replies were actually written by Nigerians then a lot of people are still thinking with their pe**s & need some sence.

    Well prof. That ur a prof. or an old man does not make u d wisest & give u no right 2 challenge a leader cos u r not. People will call u wise but I fail to see d wisdom in u; if u were wise u cud av given ur advice in private but no u wanted 2 make news. Who do u think u are, y not come out 4 d presidential election & see hwmany dt will vote 4u & even if u make 2 the presidential post u can’t make nigeria perfect ok? The best thing is 2 pray 4 our leaders & not criticise them.

    My follow Nigerians! why are you people insulting this woman? is it her fault that God has lifted her up? believe me this woman 15 years ago never knew she was gonna be a president wife now she found her self there and trying to cope up and you people are making this kind of abusive comments on her. How many of you mother can speak well than her? Please people should learn how to appreciate good things so they can get there one day. Life changes nobody knows tomorrow, maybe you will get married to an illiterate and find your self in a public office and people will insult your spouse this way. Nobody knows tomorrow so mind what you say and how you say it so your words will not come after you. Thanks and God bless.

    Fellow Nigerians, this country needs repentance. People in high offices should learn to speak graciously and have respect 4 one another esp, elders.
