A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop being a sectional leader and take the moral high ground.
Ezekwesili, who supported Buhari during the 2015 presidential election, urged the President to act as a true leader by showing love to all.
The former minister said this in a series of tweets on Twitter while reacting to the recent deployment of soldiers in the South-East codenamed Operation Python Dance 2.
She stated, “It is tragic that you, our President, Muhammadu Buhari, have deliberately or inadvertently alienated a segment of the people you lead. It is tragic.”
Ezekwesili said it was wrong of Buhari to punish an entire geopolitical zone because of the actions of a few. She added, “The leader of a country cannot be friends only of those he/she likes. No. That is not leadership.
“The leader builds up groups. Not divide. You cannot lead only those that worship and swear by you. You are the leader. You must carry the burden even of those that detest you.
