Presidency Advises Ezekwesili To Contest For Presidency In 2019

The Convener of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) and former Minister of Education, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili, on Saturday, said President Muhammadu Buhari didn’t deserve to be president, due to his lackadaisical attitude to the plight of the 2000 Nigeria Immigration Service recruits, who slept at the entrance of Aso Villa in Abuja from Friday till Saturday morning.




But the Nigerian presidency in a swift reaction challenged the former minister to run for presidency and take over from President Buhari.

We recall that NIS recruits were trained on weapons handling and dispersed on August 20, 2015 from their various camps, following a circular, which emanated from the NIS headquarters in Abuja, directing them to go on two weeks break. Since then, they have not been recalled to their respective camps.


According to The Nigerian Tribune, Ezekwesili, while appealing to the protesters to maintain decorum, also challenged President Buhari to come out and publicly address the alleged illegal recruitment which has permeated his administration in the last couple of months, saying “that was not the change Nigerians voted for.”

“You are great Nigerians. So, you slept here, Oh my God! Inside this cold of Abuja. Somebody holds you a better explanation, and if President Muhammadu Buhari says he doesn’t know that you slept here since yesterday, it means he doesn’t deserve to be there.

“This government should not punish those who did not deserve to be punished. Nothing should be done secretly. This is not the change Nigerians voted for. President Buhari should come out and address the allegation of illegal recruitment going on in the civil service,” she added.

She further alleged that the federal government was employing those who did not have knowledge, skills and required literacy through the backdoor into civil service without minding the consequence, while promising to join the recruits until their demands were acceded to by President Buhari.

Ezekwesili stated that the impunity Nigerians fought during the immediate past administration has resurfaced in the present administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
She frowned on the situation in which the underprivileged were being subjected to hardship before they could be employed into the civil service, pointing out that only the children of members of the National Assembly, Federal Executive Council and bigwigs in the country were gainfully employed, even without merit.


Also speaking, another convener, Mrs Aisha Yesufu said the immediate past administration deserved to be commended for redeeming its image by employing the recruits, wondering why President Buhari, who promised ‘change’ had subjected the youth who had undergone rigorous trainings, especially in weapons handling, to such humiliation.


Some of the other protesters, Godwin Ladi Mercy, Adeleye Adejoke, Salomi Yohanna and Usman Ugbede Yusuf, condemned government action, saying the Federal Government should not refer to the 2,000 youths as applicants, because they have been given provisional offer of appointments, NIS uniforms, identification cards and posted to various commands nationwide.
As of the time of filing this report, the protesters, who slept at the entrance of the Villa till Saturday, have vowed to remain there, until the president or any of his aides comes out to address them.


While reacting, the Senior Special Assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, advised Ezekwesili to form a political party to run for presidency if she felt Buhari was not doing well.
He told The Nigerian Tribube in Abuja that if she did so and won the election, Buhari would hand over to her.
Asked to react to Ezekwesili’s claims, Shehu said: “Did I hear you say that Madam Ezekwesili said President Muhammadu Buhari is not fit to be in that office?

“That is a political statement. What I will advise her to do is to come out of the shadow of the grieving Chibok parents, register a political party and go into the election against the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari.
“If she thinks she is a better person to be in that office, let her present herself to the Nigerian people in an election. She has the right to do so under our constitution.”

“The issue of democracy is that there is a right to vote and be voted for. If anybody thinks that they can do a better job than President Muhammadu Buhari as president of Nigeria, let them go and run for the office to win election and take over.”

Wow did the presidency really say this? We are finished in this country! This administration is far worse than the last

James said...

ROTFL. Things fall apart. Madam Oby knows that Buhari has bad qualities she mentioned and more but still went ahead to mislead Nigerians into voting him into office. She is now speaking out bcos her northern muslim colleague has been appointed NPA Director while she has been ignored.
Talk about Karma.

"she should come out of the shadow of the grieving chibok parents", such insult! During GEJ's tenure, you praised and commended her efforts for championing the cause, she was in the forefront now you've reduced her to a coward hiding in the shadows.

BLUNT said...

What a wicked, heartless and insensitive statement from the reserve of serial gaffes of this devil-inspired aboki government. I saw these kids sitting on the road-tar. They all looked tired, frustrated and hungry. How did we end up with this coven of clowns please? What indeed motivates that Certificate-less dinosaur and his charlatanic aides?

Jay Moore said...

Arrogant and unnecessary comment by Shehu Garba. Why can't he address points raised by Oby?
Those who advise our leaders are their problem, they are badly advised.
Mallam Garba, if Oby contest for presidency with PMB, she will surely win over your leader with current situation faced by Nigerians so please swerve.
Same woman most of you praised the past years can't voice her opinion because you all want her to be "follow follow" she's not.

I will also advise Oby & Remi Sonaiya to form all female race to contest in 2019, both should contest for President/Vice. They will surely win the race with the help of Nigeria women who truly want change in our male dominated country/continent.
Nigeria women should be given a chance to rule us since our men has failed us.
PMB should revisit the plight of the young recruits, their job should be reinstated.

Nnenna King said...

That was a very harsh and deep response.what ever happened to this present government and the people employed under it?have they all lost every form of human sympathy and goodwill?why the deaf ears to our cries and tears and why is everyone so scared to rise up together and protest heavily?one man can never be greater than whole country.change my a***.its all nothing but backyard and hidden corruption going on wth this government but their turn will come and we will all definitely spit on them.it has never been this bad in this country and to think the idiot at the helm of affairs doesn't do nothing nor listen to anyone.only does as he pleases...we shall see.

calabar Chick said...

Kikikikikikiki!
Serves her right.

Cynthia Iyede said...

So this government cannot take criticism without too much talk!

Blossom said...

She didn't relent in her fight for what she believes is right. She was condemned by the previous govt cos they feel she was an APC member.

She was a staunch supporter of Buhari's govt. She like many,were deceived. Now see how Nigerians are treated in their own country. This govt doesn't accept constructive critism.

Madam due process,i hope your eyes are open now to see Buhari for who he really is.

Jasmine said...

As in. The insult is go 'big'

christabel said...

It's her cross, let her carry it. Zero respect for this woman

Adadioramma said...

Serves her right. Wu go vote for her? Wu her cheap blackmail don elp?

Eka Joy said...

Johnspeak Uwangue said...

Isn't that what she has ever wanted? Isn't that why she has been pretending to care? Nigerians will respect her if she doesn't contest for any political office.
She should go joor

The 'finished' has just begun

Mawii said...

They will never win! Nigerians, both men & women will never vote for a female president, worse still president & vice. Haven't u noticed that women are their own enemies? Haven't u noticed how much men hate to feel 'under' a woman? This will not happen in our time o, maybe in generations to come. I remember telling everyone I was gonna vote for Remi during the last elections. Everyone i told laughed at me like I was cracking a joke. She stood no chance. No one even bothered to check her out. Forget Nigerians abeg! We are not ready to move forward.

Y'all notice how sisi eko won't comment on this post. Tribalistic faggot...ode oshi.

Jay Moore said...

Hahahahahah @Fab mum, you just cracked me up. How is your little one? My greetings. Funny comment thou, truth must be told. I told you months ago, I don't do party politics but I support good people like Oby. I criticise without sentiment.
@Pipelee, I have been talking since ohh..

@Mawii, those 2 ladies I mentioned can swing voters. We know women are their own enemies but same time women are formidable force. Just imagine both women coming out with the support of market women,female celebrities, youths both male and females, Female bloggers, it will be tsunami.
Nigerians are always ready for change since last election, social media is helping us aswell. Another alternative leader i want to see come up as next president is Ibe Kachikwu.

Mrs James said...

If Mrs Clinton can do it, why cant she?????

Mrs James said...

You lack respect i must confess

I am the queen and the boss of this blog said...

Have you seen her comment since morning? Take your tribalistic comment out of here pls.

DonMayor said...

How old are you ?

Datruthsisreal said...

Bro methinks you hit the nail on the head.
He left the pertinent issues and rather pettily to her person.

Datruthsisreal said...

Also his communication structure must be overhauled if somebody somewhere thinks this response is in order, what a national embarrassment to have young people sleeping under the hot sun and possible rain for jobs they have been recruited for. Insensitivity.

Hmmm. What a description, and it is not far from the truth.

sisi eko said...

Pipi Lee pay no mind to this degenerate. So you think I'd avoid commenting on any post if I have anything to say? Tribalistic what? You are in sane my dear.

Some of us have a certain time that we comment here. So don't go looking for my comments at 'odd hours" to prove ur watery nonsense. Have u ever seen me engage in any tribal fracas on this blog? Do u even know which of the tribes I belong?

The discourse here is about Oby speaking for aggrieved job applicants. So where did the tribal debate set in?

I'm tempted to ask u to send ur curses back to whoever trained u. They did a woeful job.

sisi eko said...

Why not. People fail to realise that the fact that u support a person irrespective of the party that they belong to, doesn't mean that u practice partisan politics. You can root for an individual u belive in, and u can also criticise them when they misbehave.
But No, Nigerians will scream for ur head simply because u support a person and u later criticise them or thier act. As if freedom of expression has become a crime.

I have learned that if you love someone and u want the best out of him, you should be able to criticise him constructively.

I am for Buhari, I don't care about Apc, even though Buhari won on their platform. It doesn't mean that I won't criticise him when the need arises. So those of u who always roll the drums out whenever the presidency messes up should not bother. Na me go first flag them before u remind me. Lol

Hahahahahaha well said @SisiEko, my honourable political partner.😀😬
