For the second time in a couple of months First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan has again been flown to Spain for medical check up.

A highly placed source in the State House told THISDAY in confidence Monday night that Mrs Jonathan had left the country for an undisclosed hospital in Spain.

Although the details of her sojourn and the actual reason she embarked on it are still not clear, it may not be unconnected with the same controversial illness for which she was hospitalised last year.
