Former minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili, has said that Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari is overemphasizing Nigeria’s governance, making it look more difficult than it is in reality.
Mrs Ezekwesili made the statement on her Twitter handle on Friday.
She said: “Governance of our country Nigeria is undoubtedly a complex and tough task.
“However, let’s be honest with our Buhari and collectively let him know that it is definitely not as hard as he makes it.
“There are Nigerians like me who can do 1000 times better than this.”
Mrs Ezekwesili, a presidential candidate under the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, ACPN, in Nigeria’s last election, noted that good governance remains a puzzle for Mr Buhari.
She alleged that the president has refused to see that the country currently “wobbles badly” under his administration.
“I don’t know how they fail to see the reality (not perception) of a systematic governmental failure that stares every truthful Nigerian today,” Mrs Ezekwesili said.
Mrs Ezekwsili, a co-convener of Bring Back Our Girls group, said Mr Buhari failed his promise to Nigerians after he said he will not claim to “have defeated Boko Haram without rescuing the ChibokGirls & all other innocent persons held hostage by insurgents” in his 2015 inaugural address.
She further stated that the reality that Boko Haram still has some of the girls in captivity was a proof for her claim.
DAILY NIGERIAN recalls that 276 Chibok school girls were kidnapped four years ago from their school dormitory on April 14, 2018, in Chibok town, Borno State.
57 of them escaped while being taken away and three others were found or rescued by the military.
However, on October 13, 2016, 21 of the girls were freed after the Swiss government and International Committee of Red Cross brokered a deal between Boko Haram and the Nigerian government.
On May 6, 2017, the Nigerian government said the 82 of the schoolgirls were freed in exchange for some suspected members of the terrorist group held by the authorities.
