First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan has disclosed that she had another round of health challenge during the re-election campaigns of President Goodluck Jonathan and was sneaked to Germany in January for a major surgery.
The First Lady who spoke yesterday during a farewell service organised for the First Family by the Aso Villa Chapel, said the challenge was made a top secret in such a way that she would attend campaign rallies in the afternoon and sneak to Germany with the last flight in the evening.
The President’s wife said she was billed for another surgery immediately after the elections but God miraculously healed her.
She said after her husband lost his re-election bid, she returned to Germany for the surgery and was at the edge of being taken in when doctors decided to carry out medical tests again.
“I went through four different hospitals in Germany for the test and they returned a verdict that it was no longer necessary to do the surgery,” she said.
Meanwhile, the Chapel formally bade President Goodluck Jonathan, his wife, Patience, and members of their family farewell yesterday.
That was the last time Jonathan and his family would be worshipping in the chapel before handing over power to Gen Muhammadu Buhari on May 29.
An interdenominational service has been scheduled to hold at the National Ecumenical Centre next Sunday to commemorate the nation’s Democracy Day.
The Chapel Committee as well as the children’s church presented gift items to Jonathan, his wife and his mother, Eunice.
The President and his wife danced to the front of the building in appreciation of God’s kindness to them in the last five years.
The Chaplain, Ven. Obioma Onwuzurumba, in a message titled “To God be the Glory,” thanked God on behalf of the First Family.
