Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has said she detests the leadership style of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Ezekwesili took to her twitter handle and said Buhari’s “ethnic chauvinism and condemnable clannishness” have “deepened the gullies of disagreement and disaffection among people, ethnicities, regions, religions and classes.”

She went on to slam the National Assembly which she described as “absolute lackeys and genuflecting sycophants of Buhari” while advising citizens to take responsibility in salvation Nigeria.

The former minister tweeted, “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.”

Ezekwesili lampooned Buhari whom she accused of ethnic bias, adding that Nigeria is dangerously sitting in a tinderbox.

“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.

“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,” she wrote.

Ezekwesili called on all citizens to stand up in condemnation of these acts saying, “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.

“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.

Urging citizens to take action, the Bring Back Our Girls co-convener said, “Citizens better get ready to take up responsibility for steadying our tottering country.”
