Former minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s Independence day speech was divisive.
Buhari in his speech had expressed disappointment in the leaders of the South-East for not reigning in on IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
In a series of tweets on Monday, Ezekwesili said the President should know that he belongs to all Nigerians.
She wrote, “So I read OUR President @MBuhari ‘s #NigeriaAt57 Speech and wondered how OUR Leader could be so DIVISIVE & UNINSPIRING on a DAY LIKE THAT.
“LEADER of a country BELONGS TO ALL. There is a HIGH PEDESTAL of a LEADER that is BEST DEPLOYED FOR BUILDING ALL. NEVER DIVIDE YOUR PEOPLE.”
