Abuja - The Director General of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organization, Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, has aimed a few insults in the direction of the first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, Naij reported.

Amaechi opined that the first lady was not acting as a proper role model to women across the country.

This comes after Dame Jonathan was found to be making hate speeches at Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Presidential campaigns across the country as well as making personal attacks on APC presidential candidate, General Buhari.

Speaking at a Buhari Meets Women programme, he unflatteringly compared Dame Jonathan to the wife of General Buhari, Aisha Buhari.

“Mrs Buhari has been going from one state to another campaigning for her husband. A very intelligent woman. Am epitome of a good wife. She has never abuse Mr President or those abusing her husband. She didn’t behave like the first lady," he said.

This continues a back-and-forth dialogue between Amaechi and Dame Jonathan which doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon.
