The First lady opened up on her controversial medical trip last year, she admitted for the very first time that she was closed to death. Patience Jonathan who spoke at a thanksgiving service where the first family worship at Aso Rock Chapel, said she went through multiple surgical operations and at some point her doctors lost hope after she passed out for more than a week. It was not an easy experience me the first lady told the congregations.
She further said my intestine and tummy were opened, i know i am not Lazarus but my experience was similar to his. My doctors already lost hope but it was God in His infinite mercy that said i will return to Nigeria. Baba God woke me up after 7 days she narrated. The first lady was on admission at the Horst Schmidt Klinik in Germany for an undisclosed ailment though lots of report suggested that she was treated for lungs and abdominal problems.
The presidency make sure the anxious public remained in the dark about her condition, while the news was in circulation, they repeatedly insisted that the first lady traveled for a deserved rest. Thanksgiving was delayed for two months due to the helicopter crash that lead to the death of former governor of Kaduna state, Patrick Yakowa and Former National Security Adviser to President Jonathan, Owoeye Azazi.
Mrs Jonathan said during the stirring session that it is the lord doing that i arrived safely, when thy Lord (God) Say yes nobody can say no. Lot of people are always afraid of operation, but in my own case, i was going to the theatre every day. I did eight to nine operation within a month, it was God who saw me through. She continue by saying she accused some of those she trusted of leaking information to the public that she is dead. They even went to the extend of scrambling for my properties and selling those they could, Patience Jonathan said.
