Former Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, has accused the immediate-past President, Muhammadu Buhari, of destroying Nigeria’s pride in the comity of nations.
According to him, Buhari’s administration was a “disaster of unimaginable proportions.”
In a Tweet posted on his handle, Osita opined that the former President “destroyed every fibre of Nigeria’s consensus as well as the destroyed Nigeria’s pride in the comity of nations.”
He went on to say that compared to Nigeria, the gruesome Nigeria-Biafra Civil war period was a safer and more united period.
“President Buhari destroyed every fibre of our national consensus, destroyed our pride of place in the comity of nations, damaged our collective desire to live in peace within our diversity, and reversed the economic progress of the democratic era. President Buhari was simply a disaster of unimaginable proportions,” he stated.
Apple’s Bite reports that Osita was Nigeria’s Minister of Aviation under President Goodluck Jonathan and also served as Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Corps under President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Osita began his public sector career with the Federal Capital Development Authority in Abuja. Shortly after completing his National Youth Service Corps, he won the National Youth Service Corps FCT Honours Award and gained automatic employment with the Federal Capital Development Authority.
As a public servant, he contributed to national development through his services as the Secretary to the National Committee for the visit of Pope John Paul II to Nigeria in 1998, which earned him a papal commendation. He also served as a member of the Committee for the Review of the Abuja Master Plan.
Osita also led the Committee for the Drafting of Nigeria’s National Policy on Non-Motorized Forms of Transportation and was the Assistant Secretary of the Committee for the Military-Civilian Handover in 1999.
He also served as personal assistant to the minister of state in the Federal ministry of Works and Housing, personal assistant to the minister of transport, and special assistant to the senior adviser to the president on legal matters.
After a public sector career, Osita joined Mobil Producing Nigeria, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, as a senior adviser on government and business relations.
It was in this role, in 2007, that the then president of Nigeria, President Olusegun Obasanjo, sought him out and appointed him as the Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).
