1st Lady not ill, she’s only resting abroad - Presidency

An online portal, Saharareporters, had
reported on Sunday that the wife of the
President was being treated for “food
poisoning” which she contracted during a
visit to Dubai, United Arab Emirate 11 days
However, the Presidency, in its reaction on
Monday, denied that Mrs Jonathan had been
hospitalised for food poisoning.
Her spokesman, Ayo Osinlu, confirmed that
she had travelled out of the country but
denied the rumoured illness. Osinlu said the President’s wife travelled out of the country to
take a “moment’s rest”. He, however, did not disclose Mrs Jonathan’s whereabouts.
“If you look at her itinerary in August, you would be wondering how she was able to
accomplish that. In the course of this week, she will be back home. But remember, it all
depends on her plans,” he said.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, who also spoke on
the matter, dismissed Mrs Jonathan’s widely reported illness as a rumour.
Abati insisted that the story “was a rumour and there is nothing like that”.
