Former First Lady, Patience Jonathan, has told President Muhammadu Buhari to call Ibrahim Magu, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to order.
Mrs. Jonathan, in a statement signed by her chief press secretary, Belema Meshack-Hart, also accused Magu of being desperate to destroy her family.
She also claimed she was being targeted for the role she played in the 2015 election.
“We believe that she is being systematically persecuted and punished because of her unflinching support for her husband during the 2015 elections,” the statement read.
“President Buhari should be reminded that his wife also supported him in all the elections he contested against her husband, former President Jonathan, but Dr. Jonathan did not at any point in time, carry out personal vendetta or go after Buhari’s wife.
“That is the standard practice in all democracies around the world. For instance, Michelle Obama campaigned vigorously for her husband’s party during their last Presidential election, but we are yet to see President Donald Trump move against her. One thing is clear: No matter what they do to Mrs. Jonathan, she will continue to stand by her husband, the father of her children, even if it means paying the supreme price with her life,” she said.
