Ex-Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has taken a swipe at politicians in the country.

She claimed politicians know why democracy is collapsing at an alarming rate, urging them to stop acting surprised when things like Niger happen.

In a post via her verified Twitter handle on Monday, the former Minister lamented that democracy is sadly in crisis worldwide.

She questioned if politicians were ready to admit their massive failures had grossly eroded state capabilities and their legitimacy, losing the trust of their citizens.

She wrote, “It is a fact that democracy is sadly in crisis all over the world.

“However, democracy is not just struggling but collapsing at an alarming rate in our own West African neighbourhood.

“Our politicians know why.

“They know and should stop acting surprised when things like Niger happen.

“The question therefore is, ‘are politicians ready to face the truth that stares them in the face and admit their massive failures which have grossly eroded state capabilities and lost them legitimacy and trust of their citizens?’”
