Yul Edochie, a controversial actor, has chastised Nigerian footballer Ahmed Musa for reposting his article on the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the government without identifying him as the author.
Ahmed Musa’s viral internet message has many people admiring the footballer, who many assume was the original writer.
On Tuesday, the footballer asked on his Instagram page how politicians feel when they fly abroad to see their children’s schools while “ASUU is on strike.”
“TO OUR POLITICAL OFFICERS WITH CHILDREN IN SCHOOL ABROAD. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT VISITING YOUR CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD, TAKING PICTURES IN THEIR SCHOOLS, AND POSTING ONLINE WHILE ASUU IS ON STRIKE?” HE WRITTEN.
“LIKE SERIOUSLY, HOW DO YOU LIKE IT? YOU’RE RUNNING A SYSTEM IN WHICH YOU HAVE NO BELIEF. SHOW ME ONE OYIBO LEADER WITH A CHILD IN NIGERIA.
“E NO-TOUCH UNA?” AND WHEN YOU RETURN, NIGERIAN YOUTHS WILL STILL COME TOGETHER TO PRAY FOR UNA.”
In a statement, Yul emphasized that there was nothing wrong with Musa copying his message, but that the Super Eagles star should have credited him as the author.
“NA ME THINK AM, WRITE AM POST FOR MY PAGES TODAY.” MY BROTHER AHMED MUSA MUNCH AM POSTING FOR HIS OWN PAGE WITHOUT CREDITING ME. E GOOD? WE ALL WISH FOR A WORKING NIGERIA. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH COPYING AND PASTEING, BUT YOU SHOULD CREDIT THE WRITER.”
