First Lady, Patience Jonathan a.k.a. Mama Peace has debunked claims by Governor Rotimi Amaechi that she’s in Rivers State to strategize on how to use the
Resident Electoral Commission and the Security Apparatus in the State to Rig the Governorship Election in Favor of Mr Nyesom Wike, the state PDP governorship candidate.

In a statement released by Director of Information in her office, Ihuoma Priscilla, April 10th, the First Lady Has refuted all claims by Amaechi:

“The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan has dismissed the allegation that she was pressurising the Independent National Electoral Commission (and the Security Agencies to rig tomorrow's April 11, 2015) elections in Rivers State.

As an apostle of peace and non-violent elections, the First Lady distances herself from any alleged actions that could hinder successful elections in Nigeria, especially in her home state, Rivers State.

She countered the insinuations that she was in her home town, Okrika for the purpose of the governorship election, pointing out that she registered in her husband, President Jonathans village, Otuoke in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

The First Lady, a highly respected indigene of Okrika in Rivers State visited her home town on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 to a tumultuous welcome by her kinsmen and women who thronged the streets to welcome and appreciate her wonderful support to her husband, the President and for bringing development to Okrikaland.
