Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has approached President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately evoke a Sovereign National Conference to address the various issues facing the country.
Ezekwesili lamented that the country at this crucial time of devastating political and social dangers required a meeting to address the prickly issues.
She said this had become inevitable in view of happenings in the country.
Ezekwesili said the issue presently was whether the Nigerian government drove by Buhari would hold such an important meeting.
In her words: “Nigeria, at this time, the crippling political, economic and social dangers make the convocation of a Sovereign National Conversation inevitable.
The question is whether President Muhammadu Buhari’s Nigerian government realizes the urgency or wishes to continue playing the ostrich and endanger Nigeria.
I shall daily repeat that my tweet on need for urgent convoking of a Sovereign National Conversation.
Wise minds know the Center and constituent parts are right now simply too wobbly.
Better to keep reminding those who have chosen not to see how fast the country is sliding.”
