Speculations on the health of Nigeria's First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan continues to flourish as recent reports say her highly anticipated return trip to Nigeria, has again been canceled by her hospital in Germany.
Online news medium Sahara Reporters quotes a source at the hospital as saying that Mrs. Jonathan could not be discharged to leave as was requested by her husband because there are still several unresolved issues concerning her health.
SaharaReporters says it was unable to determine what those issues are, but it seems obvious that her condition is still poor.
Only a few days ago, however, the presidency, through spokesman Reuben Abati, said she was in good health.
Commenting on a three-second video allegedly shot recently when her husband visited her, in which she was shown to be well-dressed, he said, “You can see that the setting does not resemble that of a hospital. She is hale and hearty.”
Her doctors evidently do not share that view, and no new date has been given as to when Mrs. Jonathan, who is also a Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa State, will leave Germany. She has now been away for six weeks.
