The wife of former president, Goodluck Jonathan has continued her ongoing battle with the EFCC.

Patience Jonathan recently,  had her staff remove all inscriptions the commission had put on her hotel .

The hotel worth N2bn was reportedly under investigation, but she seems to be daring the anti-graft agency.

Patience Jonathan, has recovered  the  N2bn hotel which was sealed off by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in June 2017.

The EFCC had placed the red inscriptions saying: ‘EFCC Under Investigation’ all over the hotel which is located near Setraco Construction Company, off the Mabushi Kado Expressway.

However, according to The Punch, recently, the EFCC inscriptions had been covered with patches of grey paint. Three men who spoke to the press said they acted on the instruction of Mrs Jonathan.

When asked if they had the right to enter the building, one of them said: “Go and ask the EFCC if they had the right to put their sign all over the building in the first place. If you want more information, go and ask madam.”

Mr Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesman for the EFCC said he did not know much about the seizure of the building and thus could not say if it had been returned to Patience or not.

He also told the press: “I have spoken to the appropriate people but I was not able to get any answer on the matter.”
