Mrs Patience Jonathan, wife of the former President Goodluck Jonathan has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is persecuting her because of her role in the 2015 election.
Mrs Jonathan, who is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission called on Buhari to treat her with some respect as her husband did to Mrs Aisha Buhari in 2011 election.
She said that former president Jonathan never victimized Aisha, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2011 after he won the presidential election.
Mrs Patience Jonathan said that her role during the 2015 presidential campaign was a normal thing to do to support her husband Goodluck Jonathan.
In a statement by her Chief Press Secretary, Belema Meshack-Hart, the former first lady called on Buhari to caution the acting Chairman of EFCC, Mr Ibrahim Magu to stop harassing her.
She said Buhari should take a cue from the United States President, Donald Trump, who did not go after Barack Obama’s wife, Michelle, despite the fact that she campaigned against Trump.
Mrs Jonathan is being investigated for various crimes, including money laundering, financial misappropriation and illegal acquisition of property.
