administration built more prisons than schools
in the name of fight against corruption.

administration has recorded remarkable
milestone in its fight to reduce maternal child
death in the country even as she mentioned late
Biafran warlord, Chief Ikema Odumegwu Ojukwu,
Chief Jim Nwobodo, former governor old Anambra State and Chief Sam Mbakwe as those
who got Buhari’s rough end of the stick in prison
as head of state.
According to Mrs. Jonathan: “The change that is
APC’s mantra is for bus conductors and drivers.
That is why they keep changing there name each
time they fail elections. This time in 2015, they
will change there name from APC to Ebola
because they are dead.
“That is why there members are decamping. As
you can see in Rivers State. Governor Amaechi’s
deputy dumped APC for PDP. Everybody will leave the party because its a party built on
propaganda, lies and deceit.
“Buhari who is as old as Jonathan’s father
should tell us what he forgot in Aso-Rock. During
Buhari’s era, he said women should be confined in the kitchen.

the ease of getting fertilizers.
27 schools has been built across the country
where women and youths can acquire skills.
“This administration has initiated the ‘You Win’
programme which is under SURE-P where women
and youths are given grants and loans to establish their own businesses.
All these lofty projects are what i guarantee you
as a mother this administration will continue to
improve upon if re-elected.
“Buhari abolished the office of first lady during
his time. You should not allow our people to go
back to the analogue age. We are in a digital era.
Buhari is too old. He should allow the youths to lead.”

Ekweremadu urged the audience to demonstrate
their love and support by voting Jonathan in the presidential election.
