Wike Back Patience Jonathan Over Honourary Doctorate Award by Ghydyon(m): 5:13am On Oct 21, 2013
ADO-EKITI — Minister of State for
Education, Nyesom Wike,
yesterday, faulted critics of
Nigeria’s first lady, Patience
Jonathan over the honorary
doctorate degree conferred on
her by a university in South
Korea.
The minister, who spoke in Ado-
Ekiti, said that the criticism was
“not only out of place, but also
bereft of common sense.”
Wike was in Ado-Ekiti for the
inauguration of the College of
Technology building in Afe
Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti,
ABUAD, named after President
Goodluck Jonathan.
It will be recalled that some
Nigerians, including the
opposition party, All Progressives
Congress, APC, had condemned
the decision by Mrs. Jonathan to
receive the award.
The critics had said that it was ill-
timed for the first lady to receive
the award, when universities in
the country were shut down
because of ASUU strike.
Wike said that there was nothing
wrong with the action of the first
lady as long as it was the
university that decided to extend
such rewarding gesture to her.

I think Wike is going out of his brief. He is not Patience's spokesman or media aides. He should as duty call live up to the task and ensure the resolution of the FG/ASUU impasse.
