Oby Ezekwesili: ‘I Rejected An Offer To Be Buhari’s Running Mate In 2011’

Oby Ezekwesili, former Minister of Education, says she rejected the offer to run as President Buhari’s running mate during the 2011 presidential election.

Ezekwesili who is very critical of the Buhari administration, disclosed this via her Twitter handle on Tuesday day November 17.

Read her tweets below:

”Many People: Please tell us, is it true you actually rejected the offer to be Vice Presidential Candidate to Buhari as Pastor Bakare @T_Bakare said?

Me: Yes it is true. Any more questions?”

“I laughed at the many messages people sent me upon reading @T_Bakare ‘s factual statement that I rejected running as VP with @MBuhari in 2011.

I did not waste a moment in saying No.

It is why I have always pitied those who spend their years lying against me.

Next please!”
