Dr Oby Ezekwesili advices the Judiciary on their Integrity and Independence.

The integrity and independence of a country’s Judiciary goes deeper than many think.



Dr Oby Ezekwesili


Dr (Mrs.) Obiageli  Ezekwesili, a former Nigerian Minister of Education, former Vice President for the World Bank and Vice-President for the World Bank’s program in Africa. An economic policy expert, an advocate for transparency, accountability, good governance, human capital development, and an activist, has adviced the Judiciary to uphold their Independence and Integrity. She warn that any attempt for the Politicians to highjack the Judiciary, the effect will be the destruction of everything Constitutional Democracy in Nigeria. 

The Economic policy expert also maintained that Economic Prosperity of Nations lies on their Judicial independence and Integrity.

She warn Nigerians not to allow selfish politicians to desecrate our judiciary forthwith. This warning is coming out of the numerous accusations against the integrity of the Judiciary as being pocketed by Nigerian Politicians.

Her advice from her X handle reads;

“The integrity and independence of a country’s Judiciary goes deeper than many think.

It is in fact everything in a constitutional democracy and so we must not allow politicians to destroy our Judiciary without a fight.

Take the matter of economic prosperity.
It is impossible for a people to prosper without attracting investments into their economy.

Do you know that Board rooms of investors everywhere place Judicial Independence and Integrity at the top of what persuades them to invest in one country and not the other?

Anyone who cares about Nigeria must not permit politicians to desecrate our Judiciary anymore.

Even more, the Judiciary itself – justices, judges, magistrates, etc – must care enough about Nigeria and her citizens, to fight off encroachment of their independence, no matter the cost or benefit to self”.
