Jonathan’s wife is not above the law - APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) said has said that former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan was not above being investigated by anti corruption agencies in the country.

It described as shameful the habit of those who are backing her claim of owing several millions of dollars without a visible means of income.

Acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, Comrade Timi Frank said in a statement in Abuja that if Nigerians holding constitutionally recognized offices such as the President of the Senate can be investigated and currently undergoing prosecution, there was no reason why the former first lady whose office has no constitutional backing should not be investigated.

Frank said even former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar was once investigated by the anti corruption agency, wondering why Nigerian youths should defend act of corruption for just a pot of soup.

He described as shameful the threats coming from a Niger Delta group and the protest at Port Harcourt zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) in support of the former first lady Mrs. Patience Jonathan, over the freezing of her dollar account containing about $31.4 million.

He also described as baseless and empty the threat against the Federal Government by such protesting groups, saying it is high time people realise that the era of campaign is gone for now.
