Xenophobia: Nigerians Attack Oby For Attending World Economic Forum In S'Africa by 9jaBlogger: 8:11pm On Sep 04, 2019
Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has come under fire for attending the ongoing World Economic Forum in South Africa despite federal government’s boycott of the event over xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in the country, Igbere TV reports.

Igbere TV had reported that Nigeria, alongside African countries like Rwanda, Malawi and DR Congo, boycotted the two-day summit holding in Cape Town following the attack on foreigners in South Africa.

Ezkwesili earned heavy criticisms from Nigerians after photos of her attending the summit surfaced on social media, particularly on micro-blogging platform, Twitter.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, was among those to first criticize the former presidential candidate in the last general election.

“Surprised to see some Nigerian experts in everything governance who spend most of their time lecturing the Government on empathy and the art of prioritizing national interest over individual benefits, (but) still went ahead to attend the summit”, he wrote.

Other critics claimed that Mrs Ezekwesili could not afford to boycott the event because of “her love for dollars” and the “camera”.

Apart from the former Minister, Founder of Zenith Bank, Jim Ovia, was also spotted at the event and currently being dragged on Twitter alongside Oby.

Below are some reactions to her attendance at the event, as obtained by Igbere TV..

Since she is against buhari, pretty sure the lost jews will soon give us millions of "convincing" explanations in her defence. cheesy

Same reason they queued behind a camerounian thief singing his praises to high heaven as the only saviour. angry

Those people attacking shoprite will still foolishly recharge their MTN lines and make calls with it and also subscribe to DSTV and GOTV today instead of breaking their Simcards and damaging their DSTV if really they want to boycott SA products....

South Africans are there attacking Nigerians and their businesses and we are here looting Nigeria owned businesses inside shoprite mall amd burning down MTN buildings where Nigerians are working.
Its still a Win Win Situation for South Africa
Una sure say we get sense at all?

Must we behave foolishly like South Africans
Can lack of proper education be the cause of all these in Africa

That woman is an idiot! Infact, those of you that have the time to go looting on shoprite should wait for her at the airport for a brain resetting beating. Who sent her to go and represent us?

Those who advised her to attend the summit have killed her political career that's if she still has any political ambition cos social media never forgets

Your fellow compatriots were killed, your country pulled out of the conference in protest but because of longthroat for the dollars you would receive as honorarium, you went there. You now got to South Africa and you can't say the truth and address issues squarely.
