Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has chastised the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu for engaging in ‘sycophancy’.
The former minister was reacting to an article by Garba Shehu titled ‘A President’s 32” TV’.
Shehu, in the article, praised Buhari for his simplicity as represented by a 32” TV.
In a series of tweets, Ezekwesili said Shehu would do better at writing scripts for Nollywood movies.
She wrote, “@GarShehu Why not move over to Nollywood and write scripts for their movies? Can’t you folks learn that GOVERNANCE is a SERIOUS MATTER?”
“Our public officials fail to #Benchmark what they spend their time on against their contemporaries in say, emerging economies. It’s tragic”.
“When information comes out from the stable of the President of a country, Citizens should want to take it SERIOUS. STOP YOUR COMEDIES pls”.
“The sort of Genuflecting sycophancy that you, [email protected] have written on the Pres @MBuhari makes it DIFFICULT for you to TELL HIM THE TRUTH”.
“No one who works with a leader& spends their time “singing their praises” is of value to them. FACE YOUR WORK, people. FACE YOUR REAL WORK!”
