Why I Made Up My Mind Not To Accept Ministerial Appointment Again, Says Ezekwesili – Naijanewsdirect

 

A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has said she made up her mind since 2007 that she would never accept a ministerial appointment again because of the effects it had on her home.

Ezekwesili said this in a series of tweets on Monday, adding that she had rejected past ministerial appointments.

The former minister’s tweet comes barely two weeks after her former protégé, Japheth Omojuwa, said in an open letter that Ezekwesili was expected to be appointed a minister by the new regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in 2015.

Many Buhari supporters seized the opportunity to lambast Ezekwesili, accusing her of being a Buhari critic because the President failed to appoint her as a minister.

The former Vice-President, World Bank Africa Division tweeted, “I keep asking what is it about becoming a minister that these folks find so fascinating, considering the hardship my previous service to Nigeria including as a minister, cost my family and me?

“Finally, I got it. Such an attack is by all those who see public office as a meal. After 2007, I made a decision to never again accept any ministerial appointment in this country. Facts are all around that every time I was offered to be a minister since 2007, I swiftly turned down the offer. I know it kills some of you to accept this but it is what it is.”
