Ezekwesili , who is also the co-convener of the BBOG campaign, said the country is suffering from a leadership crisis.
The former World Bank executive said “We have serious leadership crisis, even having an excellent president, it is not sufficient. At the end of the day, you can buy competence, capacity but you can’t buy character. A nation cannot buy character. Character is the foundation in which competence and capacity can deliver result."
Adding that “At every point in time, we must weigh ourselves. We try to live a life of character. When we started this advocacy, I said that if we take money, we will run into crises. I said that we must put everything where our conviction lies and it has worked for us. Members have sacrificed a lot, their money, time, talent and other things. That’s character. Life is not all about doing something to gain something.
“We should always have the mind set that if only God need is one person to change the country, let the one person be you. May we never be found wanting when it comes to character."
She has been at the forefront of the campaign for the return of the Chibok girls who were kidnapped in their school by Boko Haram members.
