A former Minister of Education, Dr Oby Ezekwesili, has criticized the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, for engaging in sycophancy, adding that the president’s aide will do better as a comedian in a Nollywood movie.

The co-founder of Transparency International was reacting to the recent article by Garba Shehu titled ‘A President’s 32” TV’, where the president’s aide praised Buhari for his simplicity as represented by a 32” TV.

Ezekwesili made her views known in a series of tweets posted on her verified Twitter handle, @Obyezeks.

“@GarShehu Why not move over to Nollywood and write scripts for their movies? Can’t you folks learn that GOVERNANCE is a SERIOUS MATTER?”

“Our public officials fail to #Benchmark what they spend their time on against their contemporaries in say, emerging economies. It’s tragic”.
