The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation has commended the First Lady, Patience Jonathan, for describing the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari as “brain-dead.”
Mrs. Jonathan had on Wednesday at the PDP Women Presidential Campaign Rally in Lokoja, the Kogi state capital, stated that Buhari’s brain was dead.
“Wetin him (Buhari) dey find again? Him dey drag with him pickin mate. Old man wey no get brain, him brain don die pata pata,” she said in pidgin English.
The Director of Media and Publicity of the PDPPCO, Femi Fani-Kayode, in a response to the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation on Thursday in Abuja, said, “The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, was absolutely right.”
“To say that General Buhari is ”brain dead” is an understatement and to suggest that he is suffering from dementia is nothing new.
“The First Lady has spoken in a courageous and forthright manner and, most important of all, she has spoken the bitter truth. Instead of crying like little brats and complaining, the APC and the Buhari Campaign Organisation should live with that bitter truth and leave her alone.
“She has every right to express herself in any way that she deems fit and she is entitled to her opinion. This is especially so given the fact that her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan, is in the presidential race”.
Lamenting Buhari’s alleged disdain for women, Fani-Kayode noted that “This is a man that said that he would scrap the office of the First Lady if he is elected President.
“If he is not ready to face public scrutiny and criticism for his often times irresponsible, retrogressive, nonsensical and asinine views, he should quit the presidential race and consider retiring from politics.
