A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has stated that the Nigerian democracy is not for the benefit of politicians alone.

Ezekwesili on Saturday, accused the Senate and House of Representatives of provoking Nigerians suffering hardship, stressing that “water go totally pass garri”.

She disclosed this in a series of post on her X page.

According to Ezekwesili: “This Democracy belongs to the Nigerian People and not to an insignificant percentage of our population known as Politicians.

“One Day soon, the People will STARE down at you all that think Nigeria exists to give you a luxurious life at the expense of the country.

“The tone deafness towards the pain and anger in this Land is not sustainable. That’s for sure.

“It appears like the latest hobby of the@nassnigeria and the @NGRPresident and @NigeriaGov is to engage in serial provocation of hard-pressed citizens who are barely managing to keep heads above water in this crisis-economy.

“In a season of famine and leanness when public officials should set the example of fiscal prudence, the sensibilities of our citizens are daily assaulted with the self-indulgent lives of politicians- many of whom were in fact not credibly elected into office.

“For how long can you folks@NGRSenate and @HouseNGR sustain this level of insensitivity?

“As they say in my place, “use your tongue to count your teeth” because a Day shall soon come when at the rate you’re all going with public resources, “water go totally pass garri”.
