Nonsensical behaviour – Joe Igbokwe tackles Aisha Yesufu over ‘disrespect’

 Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has accused activist Aisha Yesufu of exhibiting nonsensical behaviour.


Igbokwe said Yesufu was doing damage to herself and family by disrespecting the national anthem.


Yesufu had refused to sing the new national anthem “Nigeria we hail thee” at an event.


At an event, Yesufu could be seen sitting down while other stood up to honour and sing the new national anthem.


In a video she posted on X, the co-convener of BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, advocacy group, could be seen using her phone while the new national anthem was being recited.


Captioning the video, she wrote: “Not my national anthem.”


Reacting, Igbokwe posted on Facebook: “Aisha Yesufu cannot respect the National Anthem. Let us see where all the nonsensical behavior will take her to. She may not understand the damage she is doing to herself and her family. Continue.”


On Wednesday, President Bola Tinubu signed the National Anthem Bill 2024, into law.


The old national anthem, “Nigeria we hail thee” was reintroduced with the assent of the president.


Mixed reactions trailed the decision to assent to the bill at a time when Nigerians are experiencing hardship.


Amid the reactions, Tinubu said the reintroduction of new national anthem was a priority to him.

  1. Joe Igbokwe, we thought you were dead or they have sealed your mouth by not renewing your gutter cleaning contract. Anyways, we were told that Babajide Sanwolu needed a man that can concentrate on his job details. Quick one is, what is the ROI for those singing the new anthem? Plz go back to the graveyard.

    1. My brother, I actually felt this dude has died ooo
