Oby Ezekwesili, Nigeria’s former Minister of Education has reacted to a tweet from a follower who slammed her for being unpatriotic.
“I actually believed that at some point the FG would have “advised itself” & known that the so called “National Carrier project” IS A WASTE.
Sadly not so as they are determined on what is CLEARLY A WRONG PRIORITY. It SHALL FAIL. For the sake of the country, it MUST FAIL”
“I have seen a number of commentaries on this my Tweet. Let me REITERATE it now
I fundamentally consider a “National Carrier Project” A WASTE. Before we once again SINK SCARCE PUBLIC RESOURCES into a WRONG-HEADED PRESTIGE project like an airline, I am GLAD to STAND ALONE on this.”
“A ‘National Airline’ which disclosed details raise more questions than they answer.
They chorus:”Yen, yen, yen. FG is only 5% & private sector is 95%.” Which Private Sector, please?
“What is the Push Factor for FG HASTE in RUSHING a ‘Deal’ it has NOT FOUND the rest 95% “owners”?
“Their PLAN for it MUST FAIL to SAVE THE POOR of this country, the COLOSSAL WASTE of LIMITED PUBLIC RESOURCES that should be INVESTED in SECTORS that would help LIFT THE POOR OUT OF POVERTY. FG has NO BUSINESS GOING INTO THE BUSINESS OF AIRLINES. The Evidence is STRONG.
“Of all countries that my Aviation Team at the World Bank offered expert advisory support to REFORM their Aviation Sector, guess which was least interested?
Yeah, you got that right.
All that Sector has ALWAYS CARED ABOUT are 3 things:
It MUST o at the earliest before THEY ACHIEVE THEIR PLANNED WASTEFUL INVESTMENT of our LIMITED PUBLIC RESOURCES into it .@Col_Casi . I have taken my STAND and MADE A DECLARATION!. Take yours my dear. We are in a Democracy” she tweeted through her handle @obyezeks.
However reacting to the tweet @empirical tweeted;
Heavenly Father….Lord and in combination with god of THUNDER (Sango) …i called combination of land sea and air spirit to degrade, diminish and destroy
@oby Ezekwesili for crime of ultra unpatriotic and mindless hatred of greater Nigeria ! Aminnnn
