Here’s What Oby Ezekwesili Had To Say About The Oba’s Threat-Filled Speech

share on:
Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, is among several Nigerians who have strong words for Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, over his ‘gutter’ threat against the Igbos if they do not vote for APC’s gubernatorial candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Saturday. Ezekwesili, the Coordinator of BringBackOurGirl campaign, expressed shock at the utterance of the monarch, who reportedly threatened the leaders of the Igbos, whom he addressed in his palace on Saturday, with death if they refused to support efforts to vote Ambode as Lagos State governor on April 11.

She said, “It was shocking to hear applause by the audience at the meeting where Oba of Lagos made those statements. Kai, citizens, you’re better than this!

    1. Its uncalled for;that a traditional rule will go at of his ways in quest for canvassing support for a particular candidate and start saying vain words to other citizens of the country who have contributed so much to the development of Lagos and put such a threat;I thinks this is just the highest and we still say we are one Nigerian when a ruler threatens those he didn’t create or give life;all in the name of politics,such people will instigate another civil war if care is not taken,am disappointed to hear such vain words from a man you doesn’t know tomorrow;may God forgive him. Igbos go out on Saturday and for your choice and fear no words for God is with you all and will protect you;its your civic right to vote and ensure you come out en masse to vote for your choice because your vote is your right and power;God bless the igbos and God bless Nigeria.
