Garba Shehu slams Dr Oby Ezekwesili over IPOB Agitation - dailyfamily.ng

The Presidency on Thursday night placed a caution on the former Minister of Education and Convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Campaign, Dr Oby Ezekwesili not to lead any violent group into causing separation or causing destructive agitation in the country.

Responding to one of her tweets and several others through a statement released on Thursday night, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said Dr Ezekwesili ought to demonstrate a great sense of responsibility in the face of national security challenges posed by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB. not to give support to any violent group that seems determined to pursue its separatist agitation.

Shehu in the statement said; “a prominent influencer like Dr Oby has a moral and patriotic duty not to give ammunition to any violent group that seems determined to pursue its separatist agitation through reckless and destructive methods.

“While it is convenient for the civil society activist to condemn the military and the government of President Buhari, Mrs Ezekwesili didn’t find it appropriate, even once, to criticise the dangerous and violent propaganda being propagated by the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu. Oby, as they call her, tweets on everything. Why was she silent on this one?”

The presidential special adviser stated that the former minister should stand in the way of encouraging the agitating IPOB members where her political status and great influence is concerned.

He said that the attacks on soldiers and policemen by #IPOB supporters “was most irresponsible, indefensible and reckless” and that nobody in her position “should elevate mobs to the status of rock stars for the sake of playing to the gallery.”

He further added that the president who has committed a lot of national portfolios in the hand of the Igbos could not be labelled as one alienating one group for the other.

“A president who has put put the nation’s cash cows, the Central Bank and the Ministry of Petroleum in the hands of the Igbo; who has given four out of five states in the sub region senior cabinet posts in his administration, including Foreign Affairs; and Industry, Trade and Investment, and is constructing the Second Niger bridge after years of deceit and false starts cannot be called a hater of the Igbos.”

However, in some series of tweets on Thursday, Ezekwesili had given it back to Shehu, saying his incompetence was legendary.

“For where! @GarShehu ‘s incompetence is legendary. “Presidential Spokesman”. Model of Incompetency.

“Shehu, see, your predecessor once called me and others ‘psychological terrorists’ for asking their government to lead!

“To a very incompetent fellow like Shehu, asking his principal to arise and lead in time of crisis is ‘pettiness.’

“A man like Shehu cannot give what he does not have.”
