The first lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, on Sunday revealed that she had suffered another round of serious health crisis during the re-election campaigns of her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan and had to sneak out of the country to undergo surgery.

According to her, the sickness was so serious that she was sneaked out of the country to Germany in January to undergo one major surgical operation.
The first lady said that the health challenge was made a top secret in such a way that she would attend campaign rallies in the afternoon and sneak to Germany with the last flight in the evening.
She also said she was billed for another surgery immediately after the elections but God miraculously healed her.
She testified that after Jonathan lost his re-election bid, she traveled back to Germany for the surgery and was at the edge of being taken in when doctors decided to carry out medical tests again.
“I went through four different hospitals in Germany for the test and they returned a verdict that it was no longer necessary to do the surgery,” she said.
