Show the boys how it’s done: Amaechi’s wife visits the First Lady over her mother’s death
In public, their husbands are menacing, especially towards each other. She has been consistently named as playing a key part in destabilising Rivers, but during the weekend, Rivers first lady, Dame Judith Amaechi and Nigeria’s first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan – let the politics slide as Mrs Amaechi comforted Mrs Jonathan over the death of her mother.
Mrs Amaechi, in the company of state Deputy Governor, Tele Ikuru and other top government officials and their spouses, had earlier in the day, received Jonathan at Port Harcourt’s airport.
They paid Jonathan a condolence visit, at the King Perekule residence of the late Charity Obah, the first lady’s adopted mother. Speaking during the visit, Judith Amaechi described the late Charity Obah as a woman who made appreciable contributions to the development of the nation.
Obah died on Monday when her vehicle got involved in a ghastly motor accident on the East-West road. Her death prompted the first lady to cut short her trip to Switzerland and return home.
