Patience Jonathan plead to Nigerians to help fight against Terrorism

First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, has called on Nigerians to join her husband in the fight against terrorism.

According to her, “terrorism can defeat anyone including my husband, President Goodluck Jonathan, if he fights alone, because terrorism cannot defeat us collectively.”

She made this clarion call at the 44th Birthday celebration of the National Coordinator of the Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, organized by Mr. Gani Adams, and held in Ikeja, Lagos.

The First Lady, who was represented by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Youths and Student matters, Mr. Jude Imagwe, said that addressing the insecurity in the country was a shared responsibility.

She said, “I want to thank all Nigerians but as I appreciate your effort, I must remind you that you all have a responsibility to play in the security challenges facing this country.”

Prominent dignitaries at the event include: Mr Joseph Evah, Coordinator, Ijaw Monitoring Group, Chief Shina Williams, Special Adviser on Culture to Governor Kunle Amosun of Ogun State, Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, represented by Basorun Akinade.
