Nigerians Reacts Over Ezekwesili’s “No word No closure” Statement to Buhari

Uramah Media

Reactions and counter reactions has continued to trail over the recent statement made by Oby Ezekwesili concerning the Nigerian government and the president, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.).
The Economic Advisor, Public Analyst and of course former Minister of Education Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, had in the early hours of noon today held a Lecture to commemorate the 7th year adversory of the abduction of over 200 Chibok girls by the insurgent Boko Haram Terrorist group in Borno State, on the 14th of April 2014.
Subsequently, Dr. Ezekwesili took to her official Tweeter handle @Obyezeks to make known her displeasure concerning @MBuhari’s inability to account for the where about of the remaining 112 out of 219 abducted school girls, in addition to the case of Leah Sharibu, and the President Muhammadu Buhari has since said no word about it.
In her tweet @Obyezeks which was retweeted @ImoProject she stated that “seven years today, 219 young women who trusted our country to protect them, were abducted from Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State.
One hundred and twelve-112 of our girls and Leah Sharibu are still unaccounted by @NGRPresident.
No word. No closure@MBuhari” her tweet reads.
On the other hand, the above statement by Ezekwesili has sparked a heated argument between Nigerians on Tweeter in their various responses which clearly shows both supports and as well as disapprovals for the said claims of the Economist.
The first reply to Ezekwesili was a bitter critique by one Shettima who agued that “Hypocrisy is when you refuse to acknowledge and commend this same @NGRPresident @MBuhari for rescuing and bringing back 82 of those girls captured under a previous gov.
Saying no word, no closure sounds mischievous”.
Another user @sonofomenuko reacted in what is seemly a critique of Shettima by saying that “Madness is when you think that because 107 of 219 abducted school girls have regained their freedom, the government should be commended and the remaining 112 forgotten!”
Still, @IhoTerenceTerna replying to@onyezeks said that “Leah Sharibu’s country failed her and I can only imagine the effect on many young girls out there”.
Furthermore, @Dambo @Isduniya replying to@obyezeks said “This is embarrassingly sad. A country that places no premium on the life of its citizens. Yet it demands that citizens make sacrifices: outrageous and senseless sacrifices for it.
Nobody should die for Nigerian; at least, not this present thing called Nigeria. It’s not worth it!”
Yet in another comment, @Osuji_Obasi blasts @obyezeks in a reply saying, “Shame on you @Obyezeks knowing when to quit is wisdom, same jingles you used to frustrate previous gov… please change the jingle, abeg…”he rather stated in a direct attack.
More like this, @Phyphy11 replying@Obyezeks said that “I am sure that if this abduction happened during OBJ’s time and only a few of them rescued, no word would have been heard or said by these groups of @BringBackOurGirls advocates”. “Let’s try uniting words than division” he further added at the base .
