Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili has during a launch of #FixPolitics revealed that to achieve good governance in Nigeria, there must be a communal attempt of the citizens.
Ezekwesili, who is a former Vice President of the World Bank, on Thursday noted that the troubles and problems in Nigeria politics should be rectified through citizen awareness and active political participation.
She stressed that Nigerian politics was not implementing the conditions of a democratic system, which is to be practiced in the Nation-state and as expected, provide good governance for the citizens.
The ex-vice president revealed this in a statement titled, “Ezekwesili presents research findings on fixing Nigeria’s politics…As former Mexican president, others push for political reforms,” signed by Ehime Alex.
Ezekwesili while dispensing findings from her fellowship research, she said, “It is the collective effort of citizens that can change the quality of the political class and compel the kind of constitutional and electoral changes required to achieve good governance.”
The #FixPolitics was sketched to explain how to fix politics in Nigeria in particular and Africa in general and to appreciate the interconnection between politics and economic performance in a democratic society motivated Richard von Weizacker fellowship and research study at the Robert Bosch Academy in Berlin, Germany.
