Patience Jonathan Gives EFCC 14 Days To Defreeze Her Accounts

SOLICITOR to former First Lady, Mrs. Patience Ibifaka Goodluck Jonathan, First Law Associates, has given the Economic and Financial Commission, EFCC, 14 days with effect from September 18 to defreeze her accounts and tender a public apology to her. 





Senior Partner, First Law Associates, Timipa Okponipere Esq. in an open letter to EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu, urging the Commission to leave Mrs. Jonathan alone, warned that it refused to conform: “We shall file an action at the African Commission on Human Rights at the Gambia demanding N5 billion in exemplary and punitive damages.” The solicitor observed: “There is no established legal or political precedent for what the EFCC is currently doing to our client.


 How many former First Ladies in Nigeria have received the Patience Goodluck Jonathan Treatment (PGJT) to have warranted the EFCC to engage in the effrontery to freeze our client’s accounts and subject her to public opprobrium, ridicule and disgrace? 


This nonsense must stop forthwith.” He said: “Our client is a respected senior citizen of international repute, a retired Permanent Secretary and the immediate past First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Our Client is a law-abiding citizen who has never or at all been the subject of any criminal and/or financial investigation, whether at home or abroad. Accordingly, she has not been found guilty of any criminal conduct throughout a sparkling public service career spanning over 35 years.” 

“During the 5 years our client served as First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria between May, 2010 and May, 2015; she was the Initiator/Founder of the A. ARUERA WOMEN FOUNDATION as well as the WOMEN FOR CHANGE INITIATIVE; both of which Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) substantially contributed to the 35 per cent affirmative action for women in the country. 


Our Client is the recipient of numerous local and international awards in recognition of her untiring commitment towards uplifting the living standard of women, children and the aged in Nigeria. “Sir, it is against this sterling and meritorious background of our client that we most respectfully, write to draw your attention to the numerous breaches of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act 2004 committed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in cause of the Commission’s illegal and unlawful investigation of our client for alleged money laundering.


 These investigations have reportedly led to the freeze of our client’s accounts and led to untold consequences to our client’s health and wellbeing,” the solicitor asserted. He added: “The EFCC must realize that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Establishment) Act 2004 is inferior in content and quality to both the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (As amended) and the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, 2004.”

It looks like the Jonathans are also slow at learning, they haven't learnt a thing from what happened to them in govt, let the stupid woman keep allowing these sycophants deceive her, when the chips are down, I wonder how many of them will be there.
...and if the account remains frozen what will you do? fools! Look at the remnant of the economy you all looted dry.
Your client has never been investigated for any financial crime, so? All the people that has been subject to investigation were born with that inherent birthright of being under investigation? There wasn't a first time to it?
Instead of you idiots to focus on explaining how Patience came about aLl the millions Of dollars and why she had to impersonate several accounts with different people, is that also her right as a former first Lady? If the source of the money was genuine, why did she have to make an attempt to front with someone else.
BTW, permanent Secretary is one of the highest positions to attain in civil service, how much is their salary? Let's assume she was a perm second for 10years and she hasn't spent a dime from the salary, please how much will it amount and why convert it to dollars?
There are overwhelming signs of laundering,theft and otherwise. Do not start a media/legal war you cannot finish. Go to Olisah Metuh and learn his lessons.
Don't let the devil use you!

So how come no other past first lady's account has ever been frozen before now? Why single her out? If she was a northerner, would they have touched her account? I believe she always has her way in issues like this. That woman may not be too educated but she's very smart. She will win them. All these are attempts to ridicule Jonathan. Leave the woman alone, you went after tompolo and they started blowing pipe lines which had greatly afftected the Nigerian economy, now you want to go after mrs Jonathan? I will not be surprised if Rotimy Amechi has a hand in this.

Lily simple you're the idiot here. All those insulting buhari who's their grandfathers age mate, you didn't check them but now you think you can try to check anon 9.31 for saying the truth against your hero? Abeg go and eat a dick, after all you even laugh at some really despicable comments here when it's not against someone you like. Hypocrite

It shows how simple how simple minded you are for you to think she's being targeted when she was the one who shamelessly came out to try and claim suspicious funds under various accounts. You're obviously not bright enough to under what you read, just another blockhead eager to display their ignorance online

zubairu Mohammed said...

Exactly, what about Turai?? Well, patience already dealt with Turai, she used her power as first lady to claim a landed property that was already allocated to Turai... tables just turned. meanwhile before you claim no first lady has been investigated, remember a certain Abacha family loot is still being returned

zubairu Mohammed said...

I don't think they seized her money, they seized money in the account of that Pluto company and Co.. in other words, they seized those companies money. But what do I know, I'm neither a lawyer nor a banker.

You are really simple and lily hearted. LMAO.
Keep reasoning with your anus. People wen get AIDS had the virus that same day they were diagnosed of AIDS. The AIDS just flew and got there, it didn't pass thru HIV stages.
KEEP talking trash. The economy just flew into recession without passing thru series of looting and corruption that you are supporting.
Patience Jonathan is very very stupid. Yes, she is. A woman that has been caught pants down, doesn't know when to give up. Oya nau, you lot should explain where she got all the money from. Foolish Niger deltans always making mouth. Where is Asari, where is Tompolo? I thought they said if GEJ loses, they will blow up Nigeria.
Empty delusional idiots. That is why Development will keep eluding you all. Local village people without any sustainable infrastructure. Buhari should have left that nonsense clean up and opening of drinking water for you dirty lot.
Let's see how far you will drink your dirty oil. Umu anumanu.
Suffering under Buhari my feet, people like you who supports evil and looting deserves nothing but SUFFERING. ...and this suffering is yet to start. better go and meet patience to give you some dollars. Onyeara. Kitikpa lachapukwa gi ike there.

No be only defreeze.Na defrost

I was reading and hoping to read from her lawyer how she accrued all the monies in question. Rather, he was threatening and went on a vague citation spree, mentioning her meritorious awards and NGOs that registered no personal monetary incomes. At least officially. Like seriously?? Duhh

Even as a first lady there was no salary earned officially because the office in unconstitutional. Her being a first lady was ceremonious. Whatever she got money-wise was from her husband and other undocumented deals. Which is why she cannot claim her monies were earned as a govt official. Well, she was a permanent secretary and her salary cannot be up to 200k a month. Even her husband who was president had a salary that was less than 2m naira.. Anything outside his official salary and other benefits will have to be explained.

Her lawyer is issuing baseless threats instead of digging into how to strike a deal with the commission so to stop further embarrassment. This is a battle that cannot be won unfortunately. She should forfeit those accounts quietly, instead of dragging herself through the court where she'll lose woefully and be humiliated.

Let me play the Devil's advocate. It's obvious that Mrs Jonathan is the "scapegoat" here because her husband cannot be touched or interrogated. Loll

OK bye

sisi eko said...

Lmao. Defreeze ko... She's just being a bully. Forgetting that this will only lead to further nyansh opening of all her financial atrocities.

I can boldly say that this woman engaged in deals that even her husband couldn't touch. She was the pillar of Jonathan, still is. Very brave woman. The reason I like her is because in the history of Nigeria, no first lady has ever campaigned for her husband like Mrs Jonathan did. Esp during the first election. She combed every nook and cranny of Nigeria to campaign for her hubby and she won.

She engaged all the women up to the state level. She really tried, regardless of her challenge with the English language, she broke barriers for her hubby and she can't do wrong in my eyes for that singular act. Mama Peace lol.

sisi eko said...

Turai dealt with Jonathan and Patience to the extent that Mama Peace cried one time Turai embarrassed her in Aso rock whilst her hubby was still VP.
Mrs Jonathan faced a lot of humiliation.

Turai used the period her hubby was away sick to clean out as much as she could of the treasury. Jonathan knew this as VP, so why didn't he go after Turai? He chose to keep quiet out of respect for his dead boss Y'aradua.

So it is not Buhari's job to start to probe the Y'araduas or the Obasanjos. Whoever comes in next can also probe the Buharis if there's proof that there was misappropriation of funds by them.

I tell u. Very bland
