Following the defeat of his husband at the March 28 presidential election, First Lady Patience Jonathan will be stepping down as the President of the African First Ladies Peace Mission, Punch reports.
Jonathan was elected the mission’s President at its seventh summit held in Abuja in July 2012 and her tenure would have expired in July 2015 when a new president would have been elected.
The inability of her husband, Goodluck Jonathan to retain the presidency automatically affects her position as the head of the peace mission which she has to quit two months before the expiration of her tenure.
The mission comprises of wives of Presidents of all African countries.
