Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, strongly criticized Senate President Godswill Akpabio, asserting that he is unfit for the esteemed position he holds.
In a tweet on X day, Ezekwesili condemned the notable decline in the nation’s democracy, attributing further damage to Akpabio, whom she believes should never have been deemed a Senator, let alone hold the title of “Senate President,” were it not for the corruption prevalent within the country’s Judiciary.
She pointed out that the Court of Appeal appears to have disregarded prudence and succumbed to the influence of corrupt politicians.
Ezekwesili remarked, “Mr. Akpabio is unfortunately trapped in a sense of excessive pride. We must remind him and his group, the ‘Destroyers of Democracy,’ of the wise words of Marianne Williamson: ‘Empires always believe they are invincible, but in reality, they are always unsustainable.’”
She expressed hope in witnessing opposition party voices finally fulfilling the obligations of democracy.
“Applauding Senator Nwoye, Ireti Kingibe, and other Labor Party Senators, she urged them to collectively raise their voices on issues affecting the citizens who entrusted them with their votes as lawmakers.
“We expected you to address the concerning matter of the extravagant SUVs you have accepted or are awaiting. You, who hold the People’s Mandate, can lead the way out of the clutches of this ‘Monopoly Democracy,’ characterized by the political misconduct epitomized by Mr. Akpabio and his associates,” she tweeted.
