Ezekwezili Condemns Confirmation of Obanikoro

Oby Ezekwesili, former minister of Education has criticized today’s nomination and confirmation of Musiliu Obanikoro, a former lawmaker, as a Minister.

While describing the nomination by the Senate as morally repugnant, Ezekwesili also described the senators who approved the confirmation as shameless fellows.

“So despite Ekitigate, our Senate confirmed the morally repugnant nomination of Obanikoro as a Minister by our President? Shameless lot. The issue of Obanikoro’s nomination and confirmation has no political context for citizens for it is entirely about our values as a people,” Ezekwesili stated on her twitter page.

The Nigerian Senate on Wednesday confirmed Musiliu Obanikoro as a federal minister appointed by President Goodluck Jonathan, ignoring allegations that he played a prominent role in election fraud in Ekiti State.

In a leaked tape, Obanikoro was recently named as a principal actor in the state’s governorship election rigging in 2014. This sparked national outrage, as there were allegations that the Nigerian government has refused to investigate the claims.

After repeated deferments, PDP Senators voted to confirm the approval of Obanikoro’s nomination as a minister in spite of protests from senators from Lagos State, Obanikoro’s home state, and other members of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, who had vowed to stop the clearance over the Ekiti scandal.
