Wife of president Goodluck Jonathan, Dame Patience Jonathan at the farewell service in Aso Villa Chapel yesterday has disclosed that she suffered a severe health crisisduring the re-election campaigns of her husband which required a major operation but disappeared immediately after her husband lost the 2015 Presidential election.
According to her, the health crisis was so severe that she was sneaked to Germany in between campaigns in January to undergo a major surgical operation.
Patience revealed she was due for a major operation after the election. But after her husband’s defeat in the election, further tests proved she was healthy and no longer required any operation.
“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.
