Abuja - The All Progressives Congress  has described the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan as “an incredibly crude woman", reports Thisday.

The party was reacting to Patience Jonathan’s comments during a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally in Kogi State, where she described the APC Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari as brain dead.

The party said it is not only insulting for Patience Jonathan to describe Buhari as brain-dead, it is also demeaning of her status as the First Lady.

The party urged President Jonathan to to call his wife to order.

The party thanked Nigerians for taking the First Lady up on the comment.
