Defreeze my accounts in 14 days- Patience Jonathan tells EFCC

Former First lady, Patience Jonathan, has issued a 14-day ultimatum starting from September 18th to the EFCC to defreeze the $15m found in the accounts of four companies she has links with or face legal action.

Patience Jonathan last week claimed ownership of the money found in the accounts and said they were meant for her medical bills as well as personal purchase.

 According to Vanguard, counsel to Patience Jonathan, First Law Associates, in a letter addressed to the acting chairman of EFCC Ibrahim Magu, asked the antigraft agency to defreeze the accounts and tender a public apology to her and that failing to do this, they will file an action at the African Commission on Human Rights at the Gambia demanding N5 billion in exemplary and punitive damages.” Part of the letter reads
“There is no established legal or political precedent for what the EFCC is currently doing to our client. How many former First Ladies in Nigeria have received the Patience Goodluck Jonathan Treatment (PGJT) to have warranted the EFCC to engage in the effrontery to freeze our client’s accounts and subject her to public opprobrium, ridicule and disgrace? This nonsense must stop forthwith. Our client is a respected senior citizen of international repute, a retired Permanent Secretary and the immediate past First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Our Client is a law-abiding citizen who has never or at all been the subject of any criminal and/or financial investigation, whether at home or abroad. Accordingly, she has not been found guilty of any criminal conduct throughout a sparkling public service career spanning over 35 years. During the 5 years our client served as First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria between May, 2010 and May, 2015; she was the Initiator/Founder of the A. ARUERA WOMEN FOUNDATION as well as the WOMEN FOR CHANGE INITIATIVE; both of which Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) substantially contributed to the 35 per cent affirmative action for women in the country. Our Client is the recipient of numerous local and international awards in recognition of her untiring commitment towards uplifting the living standard of women, children and the aged in Nigeria. Sir, it is against this sterling and meritorious background of our client that we most respectfully, write to draw your attention to the numerous breaches of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act 2004 committed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in cause of the Commission’s illegal and unlawful investigation of our client for alleged money laundering. These investigations have reportedly led to the freeze of our client’s accounts and led to untold consequences to our client’s health and wellbeing. The EFCC must realize that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Establishment) Act 2004 is inferior in content and quality to both the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (As amended) and the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, 2004.”

We don't actually care about her titles, awards, position. What we care about is for justice to be served .Im almost certain this ultimatum won't stand for long.

Oh! Mg country Nigeria, when did we get to this level of moral decadence, those her lawyers are disgrace to the legal profession. How do you defend such level of criminality, she came out to claim the money is hers and that it was for medical purposes.cant she come out and explain how she made such fortune.
Same Nigerians that wouldn't waste time in setting a Nigerian that stole a mobile phone ablaze are the same ones supporting some one with billions she can't account for.

Patience Jonathan your husband husband is the cause of these whole busshit happening to u. He is a weakly and efulefu. Tell me how many ex president money is being siezed or frozen. Before babaginda handed over power, he made sure he put things in oder and hand over to someone that will not mess him up, also abdulsalam and obasanjo . and today these people are still the one rulling this country indirectly. They are still in power. But your husband that is a fool handed power to his enimy that is messing him up. And now goin to meet other ex President to help him beg. Its a shame on him. Even his naija delta people foresaw these things happening and wanted to disrupt the fake election where children and animals where voting in the north. But your efulefu husband was too scard to support the disruption and cancellation of the election. Now the aboky buhary has no ajenda no plans for the country. All what he needed was power. Now everything has gone worse in the country. Pls blame your husband for what is happening to u. And I pray naija deltans forgive him as well.

She's not above d law and d office of d first lady receives NO financial disbursement under d constitutions.To hell with her guts and pretence!

The genuiness of this money is what is in contention not the accolades or positions held. Let her prove beyond reasonable doubt that it was credibly and legimately gotten and she won't need all this unwarranted media explanation.

Nigeria is really fantastically corrupt, not because of its elite who disregard all known laws and conventions enshrined in the constitution or otherwise contained in charters to plunder the common wealth of the citizens, but because the citizens rise in their numbers defending the stealing and mismanagement by these corrupt elements. It is ridiculous how a congregation of self serving lawyers want Nigerians to accept that thieves have rights to enjoy their loot as though thieving is a legitimate business. They justified Mama Peace's encumbrance on grounds that her predecessors in the unconstitutional office she held were never investigated, found wanting and asked to account for all the monies entrusted to them. They believed their client enjoys life immunity from prosecution having served as first lady of the Federation. While presenting their diversionary position, they conveniently avoided telling Nigerians what venture she engaged in that yielded such humongous benefits within the five or six years that her husband was accidentally the number one citizen of the country. It is even astounding how they claimed that she served meritoriously in Bayelsa where she retired as a permanent secretary, conspicuously avoiding to mention that her bank balances are savings she had made while she was in active service. They threatened a commission which derived its powers from the constitution as though the are not knowledgeable that in the exercise of its mandate, EFCC is subject only to the constitution, not some African Charter. What a mirage. The painful thing is how the teaming population of youths from a section of the country continue to express their disdain for due process and disrespect for orderliness and unrighteousness. They feel aligned with dubiousness, highhandedness, and docility. Indeed they venture into such unwholesome activities as oil bunkering, kidnapping, baby factory production, and election rigging. What a disaster to a country, which if rightly directed would have been among the world powers 17 years ago.

I thought she already sued the EFCC, she must explain how she acquired all the billions because even if she goes to the Hague, she 'll still need to explain how she became an overnight billionaire.

Mama Peace work hard to steal this money and na her sweat she take steal am.
E take long time before E reach wetin E reach and no be only her waka go steal.
When you don steal something for where she come from, dat thing don become ya own.
Why una no understand say na she own the money wey she steal?
Una wan steal the money wey she steal from am.

Don't be stupid. Did Remi Tinubu come out to say frozen money was hers. You need to stop reasoning from your arse.

If you have evidence against Remi lodge a foreal complain and be ready to defend it..

Patience case is that of an arrogant woman who wasn't under investigation coming out to claim money was hers. When similar money was traced to Stella Oduah she intelligently denied it why couldn't mama p do the same.

Let her prove the source of the money simple and not come up with market woman excuses to whip up sentiments from gaullible people like you.

Do you know the law? Don't you know that EFCC can freeze any suspicious account and ask you to come explain?
