Abuja, Oct. 17, 2012 (NAN) The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, on Wednesday in Abuja denied rumours that she travelled abroad to receive treatment for a terminal illness.
Jonathan made the denial while addressing a cheering crowd on arrival from Germany at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.
She said: ``God is wonderful and He has done a miracle in my life. I read in the media where they said I was in the hospital.
``God Almighty knows I have never been to that hospital, I don’t even know the hospital they mentioned. I have to explain what God has done for me; I do not have any terminal illness.
``I didn’t have cosmetic surgery more or less tummy tuck. My husband loves me as I am and I’m pleased with how God created me, I cannot add to myself.
``I want to thank my husband, my staff, Nigerian women, the men on the streets for standing by me during my time of trial.
``God has given me a second chance to come back and work with our women, children and the less privileged and I’m pleased to be back,’’ she said. (NAN)
