Kanu had taken to his Facebook page to fault the announcement made by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, on COVID-19, saying that the announcement was supposed to be made by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) later issued a statement that rebuked the government for using Boss Mustapha to issue directives to Nigeria citizens.
Reacting to the development, Kanu took a swipe at the Nigerian government, saying that the government visits his facebook page to get free education.
“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?”
