War of the First Ladies: Patience Jonathan Vs Turai Yar’dua

Nigeria’s First Lady, Patience Jonathan, will this week host wives of other African leaders in Abuja during which a foundation laying ceremony would be performed on a land in central Abuja that has become a subject of deep acrimony between her and her predecessor.

The contentious land, allocated to Mrs. Yar’Adua’s Women and Youth Empowerment Foundation (WAYEF) in February 2010, was revoked by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Bala Mohammed, in November 2011 and immediately reallocated to Mrs. Jonathan-led African First Ladies’ Peace Mission after President Umaru Yar'Adua died and his wife slipped into political irrelevance.

Mr Mohammed said he revoked the allocation in overriding public interest with Mrs Jonathan saying she wants to build the secretariat of the First Ladies Peace Mission on the land.

On November 23, 2011, Mrs. Yar’Adua’s WAYEF sued the FCT minister, his ministry and the Attorney General of the Federation challenging the revoking of the allocation.

On March 5, 2012 , Justice Peter Affen of the Abuja High Court granted an injunction restraining the Minister or any other person from affecting the title or interest of WAYEF over the plot of land pending the determination of the case.

But in spite of the ongoing litigation and petitions to the police by Mrs. Yar’dua, Mrs Jonathan is now set to effectively take possession of the land.

Goodbye Doris Ehikhamhen Obaseki

I join with so many others who knew Doris in offering our deepest sympathy on her passing. Although it is little consolation at this sad time, It is true that she was taken from us too soon, and I think you share my sentiment that it feels a little unfair that such a smart and talented young woman life has ended with so much living left to do. It is my firm belief that bad things that happen to good people serve a greater good, and Doris's death will, I believe, teach us all something if we only let ourselves be taught. Right now, we all are trudging through the mourning process, but with support from friends and family, I think we can find ourselves whole again.
