Stop being tribal leader, Ezekwesili tells Buhari

A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop being a sectional leader and take the moral high ground .

Ezekwesili, who supported Buhari during the 2015 presidential election, urged the President to act as a true leader by showing love to all.
The former minister said this in a series of tweets on Twitter while reacting to the recent deployment of soldiers in the South -East codenamed Operation Python Dance 2 .

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

Ezekwesili said it was wrong of Buhari to punish an entire geopolitical zone because of the actions of a few .

She added, “ 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 . ”
