Group demands Patience Jonathan explain source of wealth

An activist group, Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL) is demanding that wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, must explain funds
used to build a N10 billion hotel in Bayelsa State.
Patience, according to The Financial Times, a United Kingdom newspaper, allegedly inaugurated the hotel, known as Aridolf Resort Wellness and Spa, in Yenagoa,
capital of Bayelsa State, in April 2015, about a month before the end of her husband’s tenure.
Regardless, CACOL, which recalled in a statement on Tuesday that Patience was only a permanent secretary in Bayelsa State at a time, said the ex-president’s
wife must be made to explain the source of her wealth.
The statement, released by the group’s acting Media Officer, Abiodun Rabiu, quoted the Executive Chairman of CACOL, Debo Adeniran, as saying that the Economic
and Financial Crimes Commission needed no further petition to invite Patience for questioning.
