May 14, 2015 – Group Drags Patience Jonathan To Court For Blocking Aisha Buhari From Becoming President Of African First Ladies Peace Mission

The wife of Nigeria’s outgoing President, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, is pulling all the necessary strings to stop wife of Nigeria’s president-elect, Aisha Buhari, from becoming the President of African First Ladies Peace Mission, AFLPM.

However, a group of women who are sympathetic to Aisha’s cause have decided to fight back on her behalf by going to court to scuttle Patience Jonathan’s plot.

The women, Deborah Oboh, Ekemma Ugborough Arisa, Nana Module Onwodi and Louisa Ono Ekhomun, filed a suit at an Abuja High Court seeking to restrain Patience Jonathan from holding an emergency meeting of the AFLPM, saying the meeting was called in bad faith to scuttle Aisha Buhari’s chance of becoming the President of the group.

Apart from Patience Jonathan, other defendants are Kate Duru, Juliet Mene, Sonia Adolf and Juliet Pearce.

The matter which is before Justice Husseini Baba-Yusuf comes up today ahead of the AFLPM emergency meeting summoned by Patience Jonathan in Abuja on
Friday.

The plaintiffs said Patience Jonathan became AFLPM president after Turai Yar’Adua stepped down following the death of her husband.

They argued that the 3-year tenure of Patience Jonathan would expire in July 2015 when a new President is to be elected but Patience shifted the summit forward to prevent Aisha Buhari from becoming the group’s president.

Aisha will assume the role of the first lady only after Buhari has been sworn in on 29 May.

According to the plaintiff, “the other African nations who are members of the Mission have unanimously agreed that the summit and the election be held in July,” arguing that, Patience Jonathan’s decision to hold the summit on Friday, two months before the expiration of the current tenure was “selfish and totally in bad faith”.

    Jamoon or what do you call yourself. When will you all grow up and stop playing the devil’s advocate. You irritate a lot of us here with your silly comments. I don’t know how much you have been paid by these imbeciles always hungry for power. Are you in anyway justifying what this woman is doing? Either there’s office of the first lady or not, the fact remains that the wife of the president is the first lady. Get that into your *** before it evaporates. I know you will definitely continue with your silly comments…I won’t be surprised!
