My name is no more Patience but now 'Mama Peace' - First Lady

The First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan on
Friday inaugurated the Subsidy Reinvestment
and Empowerment Programme Maternal and
Child Health otherwise known as MAMA
Project with a declaration that henceforth she
should no longer be called Patience but
“Mama Peace.”
According to her, the peace evangelism is
what she would be preaching to bring an end
to insurgency and terrorism in the country.
Speaking at the Banquet Hall of the
Presidential Villa, Abuja venue of the event,
she also stated that her Non-Governmental
Organisation, Women for Change Initiative,
has signed a Memorandum of Understand with
some international health agencies and
hospitals, which have agreed to build, equip
and manage the best hospital for women and
children in Africa.
The SURE-P MCH is a direct intervention by
the Federal Government using the savings
from the fuel subsidy removal to reduce the
incidence of maternal and child mortality.
The First Lady said, “My name is no more
Patience but now Mama Peace because I
believe that without peace, there will be no
more women, no more children and no more
health sector. Without peace, our international
community will be afraid to come and invest in
our country.
“Peace is from the heart and not from the
tongue or lips; not what you say but what is in
you. We pray for genuine peace because
peace is the key to our arriving at our desired
destination as a nation.
“We are approaching the new year which is a
year of peace, progress and so many good
things to come. 2014 is going to be a year of
no militancy and no Boko Haram because God
will shower peace and make us take a U-turn
from disaster.”
