‘You cannot fake empathy’ – Oby Ezekwesili reacts to Buhari’s planned visit to troubled states | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s scheduled visits to all troubled states.

In a post on her twitter handle, the former Minister faulted the notion that the President’s visit is better late than never.

She wrote: “Someone said, ‘Better late than never. At least, President Buhari is finally visiting states that experienced tragedies.’

“My response? You cannot FAKE EMPATHY. Empathy flows involuntarily not mechanically. Empathy is a spontaneous EMOTION. WE have a Deficit STILL.”

Recall that President Buhari yesterday announced plans to visit Taraba, Rivers, Benue, Plateau, and other troubled states.

The announcement, observers claim was a reluctant response to public criticism over his seeming nonchalant attitude to the plights of the victims of the clashes in those states.
