APC Thugs Destroy Patience Jonathan's Image Threatens Fire has reliably gathered that the posters bearing the images of the wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, were on Saturday tore by youths believed to be APC members when mama Peace visited the area.

Our correspondent said the men allegedly sent by Governor Adams Oshemolle in order to boo PDP rushed to the venue of the event, shortly before the ‎President’s wife’s address tore down some banners bearing the image of the President’s wife.

According to our report, they were shouting "APC! APC! APC", and insisted that the occasion would not hold, as a result, security men rushed and whisked them away to avoid further damages.

It was on Peoples Democratic Party women rally held under the auspices of Women for Change and Development Initiative in Benin, Edo State.

Mama Peace in a speech during the visit said her husband would remain in office for eight years to complete his two terms in office. 

She was accompanied by the national and state leaders of the party as women, drawn from different support groups across the state, had turned out for the event as early as 9am, although some left the stadium at about 1.30pm when Mrs. Jonathan arrived at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, venue of the rally.

Mrs Jonathan said the Presidency had been occupied for eight years by other ‎geopolitical zones and wondered why the South-South should be denied the opportunity.

She also noted that the Jonathan-led administration had performed creditably in various sectors such as in transport and education, and by her assessment, the president’s performance had been satisfactory.
Mrs. Jonathan described the present administration as a gender-sensitive government, which had prioritised women development through the appointment of several women in key positions, the Subsidy Re-investment and Empowerment Programme and the YouWin Initiative.
She stressed that re-electing her husband was an opportunity for Nigerian women to appreciate his good performance, adding that the opposition party was not dependable ‎and had nothing to offer.
