Lagos - It appears as though Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan's luck might have rubbed off on his wife.

A spokesperson for Union Bank says First Lady Patience Jonathan has won a motorcycle in a draw the bank held for its customers.

Union Bank spokesperson Francis Barde told The Associated Press on Friday that officials have informed the first lady that she won and invited her to claim the motorcycle, known throughout Nigeria as an "okada".

Previously, Jonathan became a state governor after the elected governor was indicted on corruption charges.
