Mr. President, Where is our 1st Lady?

Some days ago I asked this same question.
It has gradually turned
into another AsoRock
theatrical show of cover
ups. Nigerians have come
to see it replayed before.
Following the news break
of the hospitalization of
the 1st Lady in Germany,
the Presidency was quick
to deny the news break. In
its official statement it
stated that the 1st Lady
was healthy and resting in Germany. They promised she will soon come
home. This was two weeks ago.
And the Presidency has maintained a cold silence since.
The seeming implications of the cold silence have informed observers
uneasy. In their take, it resembles the cold silence of Yar’Adua end days.
Many of them have become uncomfortable with the disappearance of the
1st Lady. Some have turned weary and have questioned her whereabouts
while many others have claimed 1st Lady’s whereabouts as a private
family affair of the President.
Some believe the 1st Lady to be a public property. To them, the 1st Lady
belongs to the People. The manner the office of the 1st Lady increasingly
[over the years] feeds off of the treasury of the Nation earns the office, a
public office.
And so the whereabouts of the 1st Lady becomes a potent enquiry upon
the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebelemi
If the 1st Lady is well and resting in Germany, why has the healthy 1st
Lady not made her customary appearances such as the United Nations
General Assembly in New York?
And if the 1st Lady is ill, why lie? Could there be something sinister?
It will be of great embarrassment to the Presidency should a blatant
public lie of this magnitude be exposed.
