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

States President, Joe Biden, by Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Adichie, over the

written out of a shallow understanding of the electoral laws that guide the
“We like to engage Adichie on a few of some of her gaffe.
This lady of letters, so to say, goofed pathetically when she described the
February 25 presidential poll as illegitimate because it is only a competent
court of law that has the legal grounds to decide and pronounce the legitimacy
or otherwise of the poll.”
