"Will you Keep Quiet" - Remembering Patience Goodluuck Jonathan and Some of Her Funniest Quotes

The glory of every administration is the legacy left behind. Our one time first lady to the President Goodluuck Ebele Jonathan (GCFR) Same Mrs. Patience Jonathan is an epitome of legacy. A woman whose impact was felt even by the stoic minded.

She made a Mark that can never be forgotten and that is the virtue of her loyalty and support to her husband. The was recorded as the first Nigerian first lady who stood by her husband, the president throughout his stay. She was a shoulder he leant on, she was his handbag. Anywhere the president was seen, he was seen with her.

This made her buy the hearts of many Nigerians even when she did nothing specially for them.

However, her Grammer did not leave us frowning. She made us laugh away our sorrows with her choice of words. She headed many occasions and presided over many affairs, this often brought her to the TV screen where she broke our Lingua Franca.

She didn't care, and we didn't complain. Her motherly heart was enough for us.

Below is a list of many of her quotes that made us roll on the floor laughing.

1. Chai! There is God oo (if you have ever come across this exclamation in Nigeria, it started in her government).

2. A good mother takes care of his children.

3. My fellow widows (she made this statement in a meeting where her husband was also seated)

4. I donate my family on behalf of 20 million Naira

5. Ojukwu is a great man, he died but his manhood lives on (Chai!)

6. Na only you waka come?

7. Will you keep quiet?

(She made this statement on this very scene in the picture. You don't talk nonsense to her hearing)

8. The people sitting before you are once a children.

9. Thank God the doctors and nurses are responding to treatment.

10. Instead to kill myself, let me commute suicide.

11. My husband and Sambo is a good people

12. The president was once a child and the Senators were once a children.

13. We should have love for our fellow Nigerians irrespective of their nationality.

14. The bombers, who born them? Wasn't it not a women? They are once a children, now an adult. Now they are burning women and children making some children a widow (Lord).

15. Nigerian history will not be completely without Ojukwu.

16. So, do I have to signature the certificate? (This was said in March 2015 at a public speech)

These among countless others made our days between 2010 - 2015.

Worthy to note that this article is meant to be a remembrance to how she made us happy and excited. It is not in anyway made to defame anyone. She got my respect full time.
