"Who curse Nigeria?" she wrote. Edochie while reacting to the tweet, blamed the British colonisers for the current travails of Nigeria as a country.

"Oyibo people! They structured it in such a way that it will never work. So we'll keep misunderstanding and fighting each other, making little progress and depending on them for everything. Same thing they did in many other African countries. Africa needs to wake up," he wrote.
