I have been rejecting ministerial appointments since 2007 —Ezekwesili

Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has revealed that she would never accept a ministerial appointment again since 2007.

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

This was in response to Japheth Omojuwa, saying 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.

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.”
