"First Lady" Undergoes Surgery In Germany

Contrary to denials by presidential spokesman
Reuben Abati, and the bare faced lie by Dame
Patience Jonathan’s spokesman, Ayo Osinlu that
the first lady is only “resting” in a foreign country,

hospital, suspected to be Horst Schmidt Klinik in
Wiesbaden, Germany, had been contacted”. By last
weekend, she was said to have regained “full
consciousness” on her sick bed and was willing to
return home
