Recently, Patience Jonathan, was honored with a doctorate degree in South Korea on Thursday October 10th; that’s her fourth Honorary Doctorate degree since becoming Nigeria’s First Lady.
The ceremony was attended by wives of the governors of Benue and Ebonyi, wives of the Chief of Army Staff and the Chief of Naval Staff, among other dignitaries.
On receiving her latest honorary degree from the Hansei University in South Korean, our first lady said “I was just doing my own thing not knowing that in far away Asia everything was being noted. I want to assure you all that with God’s help I will do more. My grandma used to say: `Whatever little you have, share; If you have a thousand and you can’t share, you won’t share a million if you have’.” Mrs. Jonathan said.
Meanwhile, the university said they honoured Patience because she had worked ‘hard for many good causes’.
“She’s a humanitarian who has dedicated her life to working for the less privileged in Nigeria and Africa especially for women and children. Her vision as the defender of the poor in Nigeria fits into Hansei University’s motto of a practising Christian. Now she’s part of our community.” The university chancellor Sung-Hae Kim, said “I was surprised that she travelled here for the Church Growth International conference years back to pray for Nigeria. For her selfless work, Hansei University confers this degree on her,” Yonggi Cho, co-founder of the Hansei University, said
