Patience Jonathan petitions House of Representatives over alleged attacks, harassment by security agencies

Former First Lady, Patience Good luck Jonathan has petitioned the House of Representatives over alleged persistent personal attacks and harassment by some agencies of the Federal Government.

In the petition written by her lawyers and presented during the House's plenary by Hon. Bright Tamuno, the lawmaker representing Okrika Constituency of Rivers, Rep. Bright Tamuno, 
Mrs Jonathan alleges that the attacks on her is being orchestrated by the officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and other agencies of the federal government.

According to her, no former first lady has been harassed like this before. Therefore, putting into consideration the sacrifices that her husband has made for the country, she is asking the House to call the agencies to order in view of their refusal to obey court orders. 

The petition has been referred to the House Committee on Public Petitions for further legislative action.

Abdullahi Mohammed @ 18:14! Your subterranean, misogynistic, and asinine comment reveals a shallow minded individual on free fall. Its worrisome to note that you totally left the crux of the matter and started chasing shadows, commenting on inanities, absurdities, imbecilities.

Patience Jonathan is a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria like you, like me, like any other 200 million Nigerians. The Federal Agencies mentioned in the story operate under the guidance of laws establishing their existence, laws that are subject to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that frowns at the infringement of the rights of ANYONE, including you Abdullahi Mohammed. If the Federal Agencies strongly believe that Patience Jonathan has a case to answer, then by all means let them FOLLOW DUE PROCESS. Media Trials, which has become a norm in the last 2 years, coupled with unlawful searches without valid search warrants, and Nazi gestapo-style arrests without a valid cause but based on mere suspicion and speculations are an anathema to our constitution NO MATTER WHO IS INVOLVED! The Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria assumes the innocence of an individual until proven guilty by a court. This is the gospel truth which I expect a reasonable person with a sound mind and ecclesiastical sense of equity and justice to ascribe to. Sadly you do not present yourself as such by your biased view.

May I strongly advise that you rise above infantile emotions, sewer conniption, and near-institutional antipathy for the person of Patience Jonathan and present a matured, highly elevated opinion on the subject matter.

What ur profession Mr. Grammarian? Obviously you like gospel sense of reason by believing the law you talks about applies to your unlearned family members.

This is a public forum, so rise above the gutter. If you must address a commentator, then go ahead. There is no need making reference to a person's family members. It raises GREAT DOUBT about your civility.

Please permit me to offer the following correction. You said "you like gospel sense." I am sure you intended to say "you lack gospel sense." It is "the law you talk about"and NOT "the law you talks about." I guess you seriously need to brush up your English Language. Cheers!
