Anti-Tinubu letter: NADECO tells Biden to ignore Chimamanda Adichie


Prof. Atilade Adeeyo, Coordinator of the National Democratic Coalition Renewal Group, condemned on Tuesday the letter written to US President Joe Biden by Nigerian writer Chimamanda Adichie regarding the February 25 presidential election won by All Progressives Congress candidate Bola Tinubu.

Adichie criticized the US in the letter for congratulating Tinubu, whom she claimed was elected through an illegal procedure, claiming that the election was marred by irregularities and violence, as well as being tainted by the electoral umpire.

However, NADECO Renewal, which said Adichie’s outburst revealed her ethnic bias on an issue of national importance, asked the American president to disregard the letter in its entirety, calling its substance “childish, seditious, and illogical.”

Adeeyo described Adichie’s message as “illogical reasoning regarding the ensuing political development in Nigeria and ignorance of the electoral umpire’s operations” in a statement titled “Ignore Adichie’s childish, seditious, illogical ranting, NADECO Renewal tells Biden,” made available in Ado Ekiti.

“With that ill-conceived letter to US President Biden, she has exposed her true color – that of an ethnically-biased Nigerian hiding under the guise of a writer to pretentiously preach patriotism, but who is capable of approaching issues of national interest from a myopic prism of ethnicity,” the group said.

“We can only advise the ever-busy President of the United States to disregard Adichie and her ethnically-influenced and biased letter because it is written from a misunderstanding of the electoral laws that govern the electoral process.”

“We like to challenge Adichie on a few of her gaffes.” This lady of letters, so to speak, blundered pitifully when she called the February 25 presidential election illegal, because only a competent court of law has the legal grounds to decide and pronounce the poll’s legitimacy or otherwise.”
