Luther King award: Aisha, Ezekwesili slam Buhari


Former minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili and the co-convener of the BringBackOurGirls, BBOG movement, Aisha Yusufu, have taken to social media, to slam President Muhammadu Buhari over a ‘fake’ Martin Luther King he received some days back.

The presidency had at the time told Nigerians that, “President @MBuhari today at the State House received Martin Luther King Jnr’s family. He was also conferred with the 1st Black History Month National Black Excellence and Exceptional African Leadership Award 2018. #AsoVillaToday”

The children of Martin Luther King and the King Center have however come out to deny issuing the accolade to Buhari.

Reacting to the development, Ezekwesili described the whole thing as “Award Comedy”, saying, “Can my Yoruba friends remind me what the meaning of “Ayekooto” is again?

“This one resurrected Correta Scott King from the dead to present the award.”

Aisha, on her part, responded, “If only these folks will calm down and learn from these PERENNIAL ERRORS.

“@DeeOneAyekooto is one of those supporters of President Buhari @MBuhari whose incompetence has made life so difficult for that they resort to resurrecting a woman who died over 12 years ago to present award to a failed President. 2019 defeat of PMB will fix him Insha Allah.”
