Patience Jonathan Resigns As Permanent Secretary Over Rift With Governor Dickson


First Lady Patience Jonathan has surprisingly resigned her appointment as Permanent Secretary in the Bayelsa State Civil Service. There have been speculations that the 57-year-old Mrs. Jonathan and Dickson have fallen out over issues relating to governance and contract awards in the President’s home state.

Senior Bayelsa State Government sources with knowledge of the development said her resignation was voluntary even though her relations with the state governor have remained frosty in the past months.

According to civil service rules Mrs Jonathan still had at least three years to reach the mandated 60 years age limit before retiring.
