Netizens have lashed out at former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba over a controversial suggestion he made online.
Adamu had said the federal government should immortalize Queen Elizabeth II by renaming University of Nsukka as Queen Elizabeth University. Adamu had taken to Twitter to make the suggestion following the death of Queen Elizabeth on Thursday evening.
Adamu wrote: “Immortalizing Queen Elizabeth by renaming the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in her honour would’ve been an easier deal if I were communicating with our grandparents. Fortunately, they knew her worth. “Age is a grace, & 7 decades on the Throne can only be the work of God and Grace. If I’m the President of Nigeria today, I’ll declare 3 days of National Mourning for the death of The Queen Elizabeth II of England. “Those of you that went to UNN, Nsukka, get ready to redo your CVs. Hopefully, your former school will be renamed to Queen Elizabeth University of Nigeria. I congratulate you on this remarkable progress.”
