Yoruba Ronu Leadership Forum Tells GEJ To Call Patience Jonathan To Order

March 11, 2015 – Yoruba Ronu Leadership Forum Tells GEJ To Call Patience Jonathan To Order

A socio-political organisation, Yoruba Ronu Leadership Foum, has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to call his wife, Dame Patience, to order over what it described as unedifying comments.

In a statement signed by the group’s Secretary General, Akin Malaolu, it said though her (Patience’s) desire to support her husband and promote the rights of women was within her constitutional rights, she should be watchful of her choice of words.

The statement read in part: “We wish to remind the first lady that every right comes with a corresponding duty. Mrs Jonathan’s choice of words has fallen short of edifying on some occasions. Calling her husband’s rival ‘senile’ and ‘brain dead’ in the name of politics is inappropriate.

“Asking Nigerians calling for change to be stoned is illegal and unbecoming. It amounts to hate speech, which is forbidden by the electoral law. That she has been tolerated so far is testament to Nigerians’ quest for peace and respect for her position, but she is carrying it too far and needs to be called to order.

“If that cannot be achieved at home, we as guardians of our culture and tradition are compelled to do so from outside. Mrs Jonathan would do well to listen, lest she continues to bring ridicule not only to her beloved husband and his candidature, but also to the people of Nigeria.”

  1. which yaruba RONU leadership? the bipolar yaruba leadership that accepted bribe from Jonathan? they should shut up.

    • @Obi – You must be the world’s greatest **** for your comments. ****! How dare you generalize when you make comments. ***! Your Igbo people have been accepting bribe from day one till date and yet sensible people would not classify that as all Igbo people. Do you even know the meaning of bipolar you moron? U probably heard the word and it sounded good in your ears and you thought to use it, idiot! Better mind your language cos it would get you into trouble big time. Oponu ayirada!

      • Haba i believed you are all matured and reasonably educated people, so please don’t behave like Half backed, half Educated Madam Patience Johnason. ‘DIYARIS GODOOOOOOOOOOOOO’

  2. It is okay for you or any one to speak evil of her husband without throwing back the stones. Uhmmm, Patience Jonathan is playing the game you men said you have become expert at. This culture sucks, that allows a 50 year old man to take a child of 10 years old as a wife. Enough of the abuses that you men have levied on women for decades, maybe is high time that women start exercising their rights as a being not slaves. To hell with the culture that allows only men to speak their minds and woman are supposed to be paraded as slaves. Enough of the slavery mentality. Women in Nigeria are taking controls of their rights if you don’t like it suck your thumbs and be quiet.
