Former Education Minister, Obiageli Ezekwesili has urged Nigerians to unite irrespective of their differences to uproot bad governance in the nation.

She made this known at the launch of her Red Card Movement in the North Central geo-political zone of the country in Jos, Plateau State on Thursday.

She said,“Citizens have the right to elect who will govern them to avoid dismal performance; we need to re-assess and revalidate ourselves to know what we are not doing right. The time has come for us to question the quality and integrity of the candidates the political parties are giving to us to elect.

“Citizens are saying, by this Red Card, enough is enough of bad governance. The offices of the citizens are more important and viable to effect a change, so we must be able to exercise the power embedded in the office to do away with bad governance.

“There is no reason poverty and insecurity should pervade our land; all these are signs of bad governance which we must use our citizen office to correct. There is no reason why life should have no value. We are saying people should be able to determine who govern them. So in the coming election, we are going to determine the quality of leaders from the top to the lowest level.”
