The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, must learn to stay out of the face-off between her husband, Dr Goodluck Jonathan and Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, or in the alternative, vie for the governorship of Rivers State in 2015, Abubakar Tsav, said yesterday.
Tsav, who was responding to a remark widely attributed to the First Lady that the city of Port-Harcourt had lost its beauty since Amaechi became governor, said the comment was capable of breaching public peace and urged the President’s spokesman, Reuben Abati, as well as security agencies to take note with the view to putting a stop to such.
Tsav, a former commissioner of police in Lagos State police, said, “Since she has immense interest in the crisis, she has the option to wait for 2015 so that she can contest for the governorship of Rivers State and govern the state as she so wishes.”
He added, “we have had first ladies, but this is the first time we are witnessing this sort of thing. She needs caution. The best she can do in the feud between her husband and Amaechi is to act with caution, to pick the role of a mother”.
