My wife's medical trip is supposed to be a secret -President Goodluck Jonathan
Following the leakage of his wife’s medical trip to Germany, President Goodluck Jonathan might direct that some of his aides and that of his wife be either transferred or removed. Investigations indicated that the President and those close to him had planned to keep Mrs. Jonathan’s trip “a top secret.”
Mrs. Jonathan is presently in German, where she was said to have undergone surgery for ruptured appendicitis/food poison.
When the story was published by an online medium, the President was said to be angry that there were moles among those considered to be trusted aides.
A Presidency source said, “The President is angry that the story could still leak when a very few staff of the President and security men knew about the travelling.
“He had thought that the movement could be kept secret as planned, but was astonished when news started filtering on the Internet about the sickness that made her to travel.
“At some point, he felt bad that despite the overhaul of the security system in the Villa, the movement of his wife would still not be kept secret.”
It was learnt that the entire security system in the Presidential Villa had been overhauled more than three times since the President assumed office.
