Dame Patience Jonathan's N1m Cash Gift Causes Big Wahala At Law School, Abuja

Dame Patience at the Law School
Dame Patience Jonathan had been in Bwari yesterday for the convocation of graduands from her NGO, A. Arueba Foundation.
After the convocation, she decided to pay an unscheduled visit to the Bwari campus of the Nigerian Law school, Abuja to see two of her adopted daughters. 

But the visit which was meant to be a private family affair eventually turned into a PR stunt and money sharing bazaar.

The high point of her visit was the introduction of the Student Representative Council President, Mr Frank Urthur by the First Lady's adopted daughter. 
The benevolent first lady did not waste any time in doling out one million naira to the president to be shared amongst the students. 

But rather than declare the correct amount given to them, the SRC President Mr Frank Urthur (a close confidant of Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue state) wanted to play a fast one on the students by informing them that the first lady gave them N500,000 and not N1 million.

This infuriated the students and they insisted that the money should be counted in their presence. 

Before one could say Jack Robinson, two volunteers stepped out, took possession of the wads of naira and counted it in the presence of all. 

Lo and behold, the cash gift was N1m and not five hundred thousand as was declared earlier by Mr Frank.

At this juncture, commotion and pandemonium broke out, with the aggrieved students running haywire in a bedlam of confusion.
