A socio-political group, The Nigerian Wailers, has accused former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili of attempting to hoodwink unsuspecting Nigerians through her ‘Red Card’ campaign which aims to chase bad leaders out of public office in 2019.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja, yesterday, Mr. Ibrahim Sanni, the spokesman for the group, said: “it is sad that Nigerians were made to go through a deceptive change in 2015 aided by same set of characters now parading themselves as lover of the country through a vague advocacy group called Red Card Movement.
“Nigerians must open their eyes clearly now more than ever, that 2019 is the best time to elect credible leaders across the country, who can help fast track National development as Buhari’s government has made an already bad situation worse.”
Mr. Ibrahim went further to say, “if those who are promoting Red Card are not deceptive, they should have specified who they intended to issue with the Red Card in 2019.”
He stated that the only person Nigerians want to vote out at all cost in the next general election is President Muhammadu Buhari.
The group said, they are still observing the emergence of Nigerian Intervention Movement (NIM) and that they hoped it was not another phony group being sponsored by the same set of politicians that have plunged the country into political and economic turmoil.
He noted that the group could not figure out why Madam Oby Ezekwesili abandoned the Bring Back Our Girls advocacy hurriedly few months to the general election and jumped on another movement which looked dubious and suspicious.
Sanni, however, said the group will not relent until Buhari and other bad leaders in the country were chased out in 2019.
