President Goodluck Jonathan has explained why his wife, Patience Jonathan was absent at his polling station at Otuoke yesterday.

Only his mother, Eunice, accompanied him to the polling unit 039, Ward 13 in Ogbia Constituency 3.

Responding to a question, President Jonathan said he and his wife had flown different aircrafts from Abuja.

He added that Patience was being expected in Otuoke to undergo accreditation and also cast her vote.

“We used different aircrafts. She was supposed to be here. And we’ve been expecting her and we hope she will still come.

“The only problem is whether she will meet up with the accreditation period. But, she is supposed to be on her way,” Jonathan explained.
