[The Activism Blog] Operation Python Dance II: Oby Ezekwesili chides Buhari

A former Minister of Education and Co-Convener of #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG), Dr Mrs Oby Ezekwesili has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop being a sectional leader.

Ezekwesili, gave the advice in a series of tweets yesterday September 13, 2017, while reacting to the deployment of soldiers for Operation Python Dance II in the Southeast.

The tweets read, “It is tragic that you, our President, Muhammadu Buhari, have deliberately or inadvertently alienated a segment of the people you lead. It is tragic.”

“The leader of a country cannot be friends only of those he/she likes. No. That is not leadership. The leader builds up groups. Not divide. You cannot lead only those that worship and swear by you. You are the leader. You must carry the burden even of those that detest you.

“It is the lowest form of churlishness that is unbecoming of a leader to send signals that you dislike anyone of the groups you lead. A leader is a winner. When a winner acts like a loser, things go wrong in their kingdom. Real leaders build a bond with all their people.

“Worst is when a leader makes enemies of most because he abhors the action of one or a few. That is not leadership! That is ethnic prejudice. A real leader does not suffer from the destructive disease of ethnic prejudice. It endangers his/her people and real leaders cannot bear such.”.

The former minister also said it was wrong of the President to alienate an entire geopolitical zone because of the actions of a few.
