(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Biafra Zionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has chided the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government of Nigeria and former ruling and incumbent opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), for learning free of charge on his facebook page, saying they would have to pay him for further lectures.
Kanu, in a signed statement entitled, “Learning is good isn’t it, especially from miscreants”, questioned the rationale behind preferring Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, who is a political appointee, over an elected Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo, to issue orders to Nigerians.
The IPOB leader lauded the chief opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, for issuing a statement rebuking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) led government for preferring Boss Mustapha over an elected Vice President to issue orders to Nigeria citizens who did not vote him into any office.
Excerpts of the statement read: “Good to see that Nigeria, her failed government and opposition come to my page to receive free education in History, Civics, Constitutional Governance and Democracy. Very soon I have to start charging them.”
“Last night I wrote in my penultimate post that “Boss Mustapha made an announcement which the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo ought to have made in the absence of Mr President. “It is an abomination in a democracy for a mere political appointee to issue a directive to citizens who cannot hold him accountable through the ballot box.
“This is Government 101. The TV station knew that was not only wrong and democratically untenable, it was a subversion of the Constitution and will of the people. “Later that same night the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, issued a statement, rebuking the government for using Boss Mustapha to issue directives to Nigeria citizens.
“This is how it will be in the future, Nigerians will troop to Biafraland to learn how to run a democratic government and we Biafrans would be glad to teach them for free because they are fellow Africans.
“The correct question PDP should be asking the Nigerian government is, where is the Vice President and why is the Secretary to the Government of the Federation doing his job when he is still alive and well?
