A Former Minister of Education and foremost campaigner for the return of the kidnapped Chibok girls, Dr Oby Ezekwesili, has said that she lost respect for President Muhammadu Buhari when he failed to follow sound economic policies and led the nation into recession.

She said this in an interview with The Sun NG on Saturday where she also blasted former President Jonathan for failing to tell Nigerians how many times he begged her to be minister during his administration.

Ezekwesili, in addition, stated that the administration of President Buhari, has been woeful in terms of critical issues that mattered, most importantly, the dignity of human life.

She, however, dismissed any hope of a merger with the Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola-led Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) which was set to take the country out of the woods.


She pointed out that the Red Card Movement (RCM) she is championing is meant to disengage whoever that had been part of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the polity.

The former minister also explain what brought the emergence of the RCM. She said, “It was as a result of my angst at the empathy deficit attitude of the government that reached to the top or to the zenith during the gruesome killing of the Benue people by Fulani herdsmen earlier in January.”
