FOLLOWING her absence from the country for about two months, First Lady, Mrs Patience Jonathan, returned to Abuja on Wednesday denying speculations that she had undergone a cosmetic surgery.
She also lambasted those she said had speculated her death on the grounds that some occupants of State House were destined not to leave the place alive.
Speaking in an interview at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport moments after arriving in a presidential jet, she thanked God for bringing her back safely and expressed her commitment to the welfare of the Nigerian people.
She was received by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, wife of the Senate President, Mrs Helen Mark, members of the National Assembly, wives of state governors, women groups, among others.
Mrs Jonathan stated: “Thank God Almighty for bringing me back safely to Nigeria. Wherever there are good people, there are also bad ones.
“There are a few Nigerians that are saying what they like not what God has planned. God had said when two or three are gathered in His name, He will be with them. And Nigerians gathered and prayed for me and God listened and heard their prayers. So, I thank God for that.
“At the same time, I will use this opportunity to tell the few ones that are saying that anybody that goes to Villa or Aso Rock will die. They mentioned Sani Abacha, Stella Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’Adua and other people. But they didn’t mention those that went there with their families and succeeded and came out alive.”
