-2018, is the Last Year of Delivery by this Government – Ezekwesili –
Oby Ezekwesili, Nigeria’s Minister of Education during the second tenure of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari’s led Federal Government “has effectively barely 1 year left to deliver on their mandate.”
She stated this today on her twitter account @obyzeks.
According to her, “2019 is the election year and so does not count cos of distractions. All they effectively have left is 2018. I wonder if they realize it.”
In this vein, she admonished that: “The counsel, ‘you must hit the ground running’ is most relevant for new administrations. Once missed, it becomes too hard to catch up. Hmmm.”
The former Minister also expressed displeasure with the current state of affairs in Nigeria, stating that: “I detest the fact that in having so far failed to deliver anything significant, the country is merely going from election to election. Kai!”
She challenged Nigerians in these words: “Citizens have to start making it harder for our politicians to merely take us from one election cycle to another with no results delivered.”
Oby Ezekwesili is a leading crusader of BBOG (Bring Back Our Girls), an advocacy group that has been at the forefront of drawing global attention to the plight of school girls who were abducted in April 2014 in Chibok, Borno State, by members of Boko Haram, an Islamic Militant group.
Her series of tweets today submitted thus: “One can only wish this FG that it maximizes 2018 & delivers tangible governance results. That much is what it owes long-suffering citizens.”
It would be recalled that last Wednesday (October 25th) Oby Ezekwesili posted this tweet: “People harmful to Leaders:
- Those that ‘protect’ Leader, as if he were a Baby (2011-2015)
- Those that ‘worship’ Leader as Saint (2015-2017).”
Her Twitter account profiles her as: “A fiercely passionate believer in the public good of nations, serving before leading. Validated by God & my Dad who taught me to never dignify nonsense.”
