Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has revealed she does not hate President Muhammadu Buhari but only have total dislike for his government.
The former presidential candidate in a post on her verified Twitter account on Monday, January 25, urged Nigerians to all join heads to condemn Buhari’s bad leadership.
Ezekwesili condemned the incumbent leader for taking sides on the matter of insecurity in the country at this time. “The congenital ethnic chauvinism and condemnable clannishness of Buhari as President of a multiethnic country like Nigeria have deepened the gullies of disagreement and disaffection among people, ethnicities, regions, religions and classes,” Ezekwesili noted.
She expressed disappointment with the leadership of the 9th National Assembly, describing the lawmakers as “absolute lackeys and genuflecting sycophants of Buhari”.
Ezekwesili while admonishing Nigerian to wake up from slumber and take responsibility said, “They would have you believe we speak about bad the governance record of Buhari because one is “bitter towards him” and “hate him so much”.
“No, I neither hate nor at all bitter towards the person of the President. But I totally detest everything of his leadership style. I do,” she said.
The former added that “The country Nigeria is most dangerously sitting on a tinderbox at this time because President Buhari lacks the minutest modicum of “The-Leader -as-Unifier” in his leadership style.”
“We all should condemn his proclivity for fanning the embers of ethnic conflicts. It is bad.
“What is going on in the country under the watch of a President who blatantly and irresponsibly uses the office of the Presidency to take sides in matters of Security and Lives of his citizens is abominable,” she said.
“Buhari is Nigeria’s highest risk at this time. This must change. I have little faith in the leadership of the National Assembly to call the President to order. They have proven themselves to be absolute lackeys and genuflecting sycophants of Buhari.
“Citizens better get ready to take up responsibility for steadying our tottering country,” Ezekwesili reiterated.
