'Demand For Your Rights' ~ Oby Ezekwesili charges Nigerians

Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, who was the former Education minister and co-convener of the BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, group has talked about the need for Nigerians to be enlightened on the Constitution in order to demand for their rights and deepen Nigeria’s democracy.

The former minister, who made the call at the Second New Media, Citizens And Governance Conference in Abuja on Wednesday, pointed out that Nigeria’s governance had been monopolised due to the constitutional illiteracy of most citizens who were ignorant of their rights.


According to her, “Our governance’s landscape is a landscape of monopolised authority, power, responsibility and zero accountability.

“That’s what our democracy has been since 1959.

“What we need on the basis of the power that information technology gives to us is to now liberalise the market of governance.” She added.
