Oby Ezekwesili noted that the politicians are unbothered about governance adding the only force against wicked leadership is unified citizens who act collectively.
She wrote, “Our decadent political class are busy sharing public offices in a country they have run aground; totally oblivious to the state of mind of the majority of their citizens.
“These folks are much to be pitied for being those the Bible refers to in Ecclesiastics 10v16: Woe to you, O land whose king was a servant and whose princes feast in the morning.
“He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: The Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, And vex them in his sore displeasure.
“The erosion of the Nigerian State is the ultimate goal of a political class that sees Governance as a series of transactions and nothing more.
“The countervailing force against them in a Democracy are unified citizens who act collectively to reverse the “curse of wicked leadership”.
