He wrote, “in order to immortalized Queen Elizabeth, we should rename the University of Nigeria, Nsukka to Queen Elizabeth University of Nigeria since it is the first University in Nigeria.

“Age is a grace, and 7 decades on the Throne can only be the work of God and Grace.
If I were the President of Nigeria today, I’ll declare 3 days of National Mourning for the death of The Queen Elizabeth II of England.

“Those of you that went to UNN, Nsukka, get ready to redo your CVs. Hopefully, your former school will be renamed Queen Elizabeth University of Nigeria. I congratulate you on this remarkable progress,” he said.

Reacting to the Nigerian-born US professor, Uju Anya’s tweets on the late Queen Elizabeth II. Adamu Garba said, “Uju Anya is not the kind of Nigerians we expected her to be. Why would she invoke such a wicked prayer on a reverend personality like Queen Elizabeth?
