Nigeria's First Lady Patience Jonathan hands out envelop to female candidates

The wife of the Nigerian president, Patience Jonathan, on Wednesday night, played host to female candidates totaling 809, who made the Independent Electoral Commission’s (INEC) list for the 2011 general elections at the banquet hall of the presidential villa, Abuja. She then, through her group, the Women for Change and Development Initiative, handed out an undisclosed amount to the five female governorship aspirants, 88 women contesting for senatorial seats, 218 House of Representatives aspirants, and 493 state Houses of Assembly.

“I will give you my widow’s mite, no matter how small. Take it from me and my twin sister, the wife of the vice president, Mrs. Sambo. It is not much, but it is to encourage you. The little we have, take it with love and I wish you success,” she said. - 234next.

Wasting our money and resources on Bribery and corruption.
When will Nigerians learn that until people stop using money to bribe their way to winning election things wont change. If he/she gives you money, he will have to find other means to get the money back.
Nigerians Enough is enough, we need credible leaders who we can trust our resources with.
Light up Nigeria, Fix of roads, create Jobs, Capital NO TO CORRUPTION.

Linda, I saw a TV advert and Mr President said, " My fellow Nigerians..." First Lady copied him, isn't it?

Why wasn't she supported Sarah Jubril against her husband during the PDP primary Election? PDP are desperate to return to their various seats and may God forbid bad thing.
