Former minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili on Wednesday said she can’t serve in the administration of president Muhammadu Buhari.
She made the revelation during the official launch of the Red Card Movement in Abuja.
“We are here today to activate the office of the citizen which is the office that every Nigerian citizen occupies. A citizen doesn’t have to be in government in order to have a voice as to how they are governed.
“Nigeria is a country that does not have any business being as poor as it has been.
She said unless Nigerians wake up and stand against the “failure of government” the country would remain the same.
“The Red Card Movement is not a political party. We are citizens that have decided that if we work together, we can change the quality of leadership that go into all elective positions. Because we are not happy with the quality of leadership, we are determined to change that with our red cards which is our PVCs.
“We want to mobilize citizens so that they will know that they have the power to determine the kind of government that will lead this country. Government that is competent, capable and has character.”
“When citizens don’t put their voice in how they are governed, then we are going to stay as a failed country forever. We decided to use our red card as a way of saying to people who have failed in governance to go and get out of the field of governance.”
