Ex-Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has described the ban of Okada in Lagos state as ‘the futility of trying to tackle poverty.’

The recent implementation of the Okada ban hasled to protests in major areas of Lagos state and an outcry from residents.

Ezekwesili criticized the government on its approach to solving problems in Nigeria, adding that the present administration would never solve any problem by denying it exists.

Speaking on the okada, keke embargo on her Twitter handle, Ezekwesili wrote, “When I read about the Okada and Keke ban last week, it made me tweet about the futility of trying to tackle Poverty by “hiding your Poor”.

“I promised to do a thread on why the Problems identified are correct but the Policy Choice is sub-optimal.

As stated by her, all the present government achieves daily is to ‘heap hardship on the masses’

“When all the Government achieves daily is to pile all shades of hardship on citizens with no consequence whatsoever, it means that those that lead have very serious denial problems.

“No country, government nor people ever solved a problem they denied.

“When policy academics, experts and practitioners eulogize Evidence-Based Policy-Making, it is for a very good reason.

“Such an approach minimizes the kind of mess and pain that are mostly anecdotal, intuitive, “seems-like-good-idea-policymaking” inflicted on Citizens.

“Data anchored and empirical analysis of any problem a person, country, organization or company wants to solve is the best pathway for maximizing success and minimizing failure.

“The opposite is “just choose an option” that “appears logical “ or “looks best, ” Ezekwesili added.
