The wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience Jonathan on Thursday said that she will be performing her duties as a permanent secretary in Bayelsa State from Abuja but with no salary earnings.

Mrs Jonathan who was appointed alongside 17 other civil servants by the governor of Bayelsa, Seriake Dickson disclosed this through her spokesperson, Ayo Osinlu in an interview with an online newspaper, Premium Times.

“She is on leave of absence, She is not going to function in the office of the permanent secretary in Bayelsa state,” Mr Osinlu said.

“It is a civil service position; she is a staff of the Bayelsa state civil service,” he added.
Mrs Jonathan will also not collect any pay for the office, Mr Osinlu said insisting that “It will be illegal for her to draw salary from the office,”

Mr Osinlu argued that the appointment is a routine civil service career promotion, as opposed to insinuations that it is a political appointment by the governor to curry favour from the president’s wife, whom many believe was influential in the governors climb to his office.

This is not good enough. She should just say no to the appointment….that is the moral thing to do. She and the president should be ashamed. Do they know what is wrong from right or are they drunk?Huh??? …....chop and quench.... This president knows exactly what he is doing. He might as well enlist his whole family in the civil service.  Don’t forget this is the same chic that was caught with $13.5 or more at the airport few years ago now the next attempt will be billions of dollars. Like the children of the oil minister their children or relatives may even have private jets as well since the oil belongs to them. No wonder we have the finance and oil ministers from the same state. Transparency…………!

Mind you, she has been a serving Civil Servant before her husband become what ever he is today. She has been a Director and she grew from the scrash before she got to the position of a Director. Directors are not made by appointment or selected. You go for interviews when you are due and you grow from one Grade Level to the Other before you get to that position. Also, a Permanent Secretary must be a serving Civil Servant who has attain the level of a Director. Permanent Secretaries are not picked from the outside as you think. She was a Director, who is now on Secondment in the Office of the Wife of the Presidency. It can happen to anybody so, I don't see any reason why hers should be a problem. Also note that, Nigerians Public Service Rule  is different from that of any other country.

Hahahahahahaaaa.................... Ashamed of what? Ashamed that a  Director in the Public Service was appointed a Permanent Secretary in her own State? She has been a Civil Servant right from when her husband has noting so, don't think she is appointed because her husband is the President, no. The Level of a Permanent Secretary is the Highest Grade Level in the Public Service and every Civil Servant pray to get to that level before retirement. No bi 2day the journey to that position start o.
