Our former first lady, Turai Yar'Adua and current first lady, Patience Jonathan took themselves to court over a property they are both squabbling over. And to save the country from further embarrassment, the Attorney General of the Federation has asked the court handling the case to discontinue further hearing on the case.
The property in dispute is located in the central business district of Abuja and was originally allocated to a Non-Governmental Organisation, NGO, “The Registered Trustee of Women and Youth Empowerment Foundation, WYEF”, a pet project initiated by Turai Yar’Adua.
After Turai left as First Lady, the property was revoked by the FCT minister and re-awarded to Dame Patience Jonathan for the construction of a secretariat of the “First Ladies Peace Mission.”
Turai has been promised any alternative property of her choice in the business district in the FCT as compensation.
