A Ex-minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili has insisted that Nigeria lacks ‘shared humanity’.

Ezekwesili said this while felicitating with fallen soldiers in celebration of Armed Forces Remembrance Day.

Every January 15th, Nigeria marks the Armed Forces Remembrance Day, a day set aside to appreciate and celebrate fallen heroes and men and women in the military, who work round the clock to keep the nation safe.

Ezekwesil in her message on her official Twitter page wrote: “I was four when that brutal war started in 1967 and the suffering forced me to grow up overnight, seeing children like me die of starvation. At that age, I became ‘mom’ to my younger sister and other kids …fought weekly for her corn milk. It taught me Empathy.

“Those who look at people suffering with ethnic lenses have no idea how pain knows no language nor region. Suffering has no fixed address. It could be anyone at any time. Shared Humanity is at the heart of stable societies. We lack this in our country. Our greatest undoing.

“When Leaders of countries fuel Division among their people as a wicked weapon of control, they harm their society. No society ever developed without a minimum level of Social Capital. A divided people can never mobilize that minimum Social Capital.”

Also, Nigeria’s Ex-Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode honoured the political leaders and military personnel who sacrificed their lives to keep Nigeria safe.

He wrote on his official Twitter page: “53 years ago today, on January 15th 1966, Nigeria witnessed her first coup and a night of blood and terror in which the Prime Minister, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa and other political leaders and military personnel were murdered in cold blood. Fallen but not forgotten. RIP.
