President Jonathan Needs Rest, He's Taking The Needed Rest In Germany ––Nigerian Ambassador

 Nigeria’s ambassador to Germany, Abdu Usman Abubakar, has claimed that Jonathan, who was abruptly flown to Germany from Abuja on Thursday, is taking a deserved rest in Germany.

It was reported that President Jonathan was flown to see doctors in Wiesbaden, Germany a few hours after the Nigerian president rounded off the National Confab in Abuja.

    President Jonathan’s sudden departure from Nigeria’s capital city and the cancellation of the scheduled dinner with members of the just concluded National Confab triggered panic and alarm amongst presidential aides and the Nigerian political class.

But Nigeria’s top diplomat in Germany told SaharaReporters that President. Jonathan traveled to Germany for a well-deserved rest. To underscore his claim that the president was in fine shape, Ambassador Abubakar told one of SaharaReporters correspondent that Jonathan would have spoken directly to him but for a pep talk he was scheduled to give to the Nigerian female soccer team, the Falconets.

The Ambassador  also asserted that the Nigerian president was staying in a hotel and not in a medical ward at a hospital. According to the Nigerian diplomat, President Jonathan was eager to go back to work, but might observe a few  more days of rest after watching Falconets play in the women’s World Cup finals on Sunday.

It would be recalled that during the days of late President Umaru Yar'adua his voice was faked to wish Nigeria soccer players well during a qualifying match in Angola in January 2010.

Despite the ambassador’s assurances about Mr. Jonathan’s robust health, a source at the Presidency claimed that the president was flown out of Nigeria for reasons related to ill health.

In 2012, President Jonathan’s wife, Patience, spent several weeks in a hospital in Wiesbaden, Germany. She was treated for a series of ailments. After Sahara Reporters broke the news of Dame Patience’s hospitalization, her then spokesman claimed that she just traveled abroad to rest.

Funny enough, the Dame Patience later came out and confessed that she was indeed sick and almost died.

Fellow Nigerians, politics aside, please wish our president well.

Body nor be firewood, take all the rest you  need......
