Chude Jideonwo who campaigned for President Buhari in 2015, said this in a post he shared this evening while commending former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, for leading a solo march to the state house Abuja yesterday to protest the wanton killings in Plateau and other parts in the country. Chude wrote
”Just like Babangida, like Shagari, like Shonekan, history will cast aside a man like Buhari who was trusted with so much and failed so greatly. So disgracefully”.

My goodness. My goodness.
I just heard about this now, and I knew I had to break my silence and say something. This is too important.
All the things we ever heard, ever read about one person’s capacity to make a difference, about going on no matter what anybody says. About putting one’s life, one’s relationships, one’s reputation on the line for what one believes in. About caring only for doing what is right, not what is understood or popular. About courage. About character. About ferocious integrity. This woman has become a living, breathing totem for all of it. For everything.
Yes. Just like Babangida, like Shagari, like Shonekan, history will cast aside a man like Buhari who was trusted with so much and failed so greatly. So disgracefully.
But there is this one silver lining.
That I lived in a time like this, in the same country with a woman like this.
We don’t know how much we owe you, Obiageli Kathryn Ezekwesili.
But those who know, know that we do greatly.
