TO REMOVE BAD GOVERNANCE: Oby Ezekwaisli and Aisha, Have Launched the Citizen’s Office and Red Card in Jos


By: Valentine Adese,
 
The former Minister for Education, Oby Ezekwaisli has formally launched the Citizen’s Office in Jos, the capital of Plateau State, Nigeria today. 
 
Oby and the Red Card
The office according to the former Minister is the right of every citizen.

You would recall that the 1999 Constitution holds and provides that “Sovereignty belongs to the people of Nigeria from whom government through this constitution derives all its powers and authority.”


According to Oby, “it is this sovereign right and authority that the office of the Citizen has that the Red Card Movement and ideology is trying to awaken in the masses.”  

For the record, Sections 14 of the 1999 Constitution in part reads:

“The Federal Republic of Nigeria shall be a state based on the principles of democracy and social justice.
It is hereby accordingly declares that:

Sovereignty belongs to the people of Nigeria from whom government through this constitution derives all its powers and authority;

The security and the welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government: and 

The participation by the people in their government shall be ensured in accordance with the provisions of this constitution.”

Oby Ezekwaisli, backed by Aisha Yusufu, said the aim of launched the Citizen’s Office and the Red Card project is to remove bad governance and sack those in office who are currently increasing the poverty rate in the country.

Details of the event coming soon!
