Outgoing Nigerian First Lady Patience Jonathan made a strange confession on Sunday, revealing what she called a plot to use her for rituals in order for her husband to win re election.
Dame Jonathan took the congregation by surprise when she made the revelation at the thanksgiving and farewell service organised for her and her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan, at the Aso Rock Villa Chapel.
She said she had to sneak out of the country in order to have surgery adding that in 2013 alone, she had 12 major surgeries in a German hospital within one month.
“I thank God for keeping me alive today. God is so wonderful. Just two years ago, I went through operations upon operations. Within one month, I passed through 12 operations. It’s wonderful.
“Some people said she is dead, but God resurrected me. God told me, my daughter, go back, I’ll give you second chance, go and finish your work. And today, if my husband lost this election, I believe God has made me finish the work.
“At the same time this year, my husband was campaigning. That campaigning time was a trial for me. Satan came in again and those that know the former president and his wife, her corpse was carried out of this place.
“We thank God that I and my husband are going alive. Thank God today we’re parting with life, not with death. Our doors are open. This campaign period, devil struck and came in again.
“In pains, I was rushed to the hospital in January and the doctors told me, mama, you’ve to go for a major big operation now. What again! the campaign was still going on and I wondered how we were going to explain to Nigerians.
“You know even when you go for a check-up, they’ll be writing on papers saying all sorts of things. I said I and my family have to hand over. My husband will continue with his campaign crowd until the last day. That was how I went in for the first major operation in January ending.
“And by God’s grace, I went for the operation and came out and it was from that operation that I went to the campaign ground. And they (doctors) told me, mama, there is another bigger operation you’ve to go in for.
“This one would not be in this hospital. It’s too small for this type of operation. You’ve to go to a bigger hospital and I said ah ah. I’ll go, I’ve faith in God and that my God will see me through. He has brought me out for a purpose. I called my pastor to continue praying for me. They want me to be a sacrifice, but I will never be,” she said.
