Addressing journalists at the airport, the First Lady debunked the rumour about her illness or admission at a German Hospital as she made reference to talks about deaths that has preceded the Jonathan administration in the presidential villa.

“Those that are saying that anybody that goes to Villa (Aso Villa), that person will die, they mention Abacha, they mention Stella Obasanjo…They even wrote some numbers …I don’t even know that hospital they are talking about…I do not have any terminal illness or cosmetic surgery,” she said.

The aircraft conveying the first lady landed at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe international airport, Abuja at 3.45 pm, Wednesday evening.

Hundreds of women and members of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) were at the airport to welcome the first lady back home.

Mrs Jonathan had travelled out of the country for treatment of an undisclosed illness in Germany about two months ago and series of questions have been raised by civil society and some opposition parties, seeking to know the where about of the president’s wife.

However, while the saga was on, the president reportedly visited his wife in Germany. The Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) had broadcasted a short video clip showing a smiling Mrs Jonathan receiving her family in Germany.

Transcript of Mrs Jonathan’s interview

It is wonderful, first of all seven million people, that show you that wherever there are good ones there must always be a bad one.

But amongst the Nigerians, there are only those few that I feel that they might be talking what they feel, not what God has planned.

Because God has a plan for all of us and God has said it all that when two or three are gathered in His name, that He will be in their midst and Nigerians has gathered and prayed for me and God is there and answered.

And I thank God for that, but the same time, I will use this opportunity to tell those few ones that are saying em’ anybody that goes to the villa or Aso Rock that the person will die.

They mention Abacha, they mentioned Stella Obasanjo, they mentioned Yar’dua and other people but those people why didn’t they mention those ones that went there with their families and succeeded but they still come out alive and God save them, we should remember that Aso Rock is the seat of power.
