Former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili, on Wednesday, urged the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to ‘swiftly’ hand over power to her.
Ezekwesili said this in a tweet shared on her official Twitter handle (@obyezeks).
In her tweet, she described Buhari as an “ineffectual Commander-in-Chief of the Nigeria Armed Forces.”
Her tweet came following the outcry of the President’s supporters over his inability to secure the country and its citizens.
The former minister added that she welcomed Buhari’s supporters’ vote for her.
“Let’s ask the ineffectual Commander-in-Chief of the Nigeria Armed Forces @MBuhari to swiftly hand over power to me so I can satisfy his supporters cry on his ignoble failure to secure the country, citizens and residents of Nigeria. I welcome their vote of confidence in me. “I welcome their vote of confidence in me,” she tweeted.
She added in another tweet, “Once I analytically surmised that demanding action on any governance issue from @MBuhari was equivalent to expecting the impossible, I stopped. We have a so-called Commander-in-Chief of Armed Forces, who sorely degenerated the state of our country’s security. Ignoble legacy.”
It is clear the former minister was being sarcastic in response to supporters of the president who were criticizing her on her views on insecurity.
