Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural association, Afenifere has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to manage his men properly in order to prevent school children from becoming victims of an unnecessary ego fight.
In a release made available to newsmen today, Afenifere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin wondered why two top officials in the same government would issue two openly antagonistic policy positions within 48 hours. The full release below :
The open countermand of the directive of the PTF boss Mr Boss Mustapha June 30 that schools shouid resume ahead of August 4 WAEC Exams start by the Education Minister, Alhaji Adamu Adamu , is yet another reason to know that we are burdened with a disintegrated government in Nigeria. .
It is not comprehensible that the PTF would go and announce that schools should go and resume without consultation with the Ministry of Education and that the Minister will come on TV and be stamping his feet ‘nobody will tell us when we are to open until we are ready’ if we have an integrated government.
The disaster of everyone holding his or her corner under this regime ajd behaving as if they represent different governments has become a daily occurence.
It has now become a sore point that the total lack of coordination and directionlessness is making governance a joke.
If Afenifere can offer them consultation without a fee, what a serious government should have done is to put the interest of the people first before the petty egos of little men in power.
Since the August 4 date is a bit away, Nigeria shouid call a meeting of the West African countries involved and WAEC to manage the examinations in the interest of the students without compromising their health.
This is how government should run to show it cares for the public.
The way our officials conduct themselves is becoming just too shameful.
We advise Mr President to manage his men so our students are not made to lose a session to ego fights of our officials.
