Ezekwesili, who has also been against the national anthem, supported the move in a post on her official X page.


She wrote: “@AishaYesufu, Definitely #NotMyNationalAnthem as I already publicly conveyed.


“In my case, whenever and wherever the National Anthem is called for, I shall continue to sing #AriseOCompatriots as #MyNationalAnthem.


“The Lawmakers @nassnigeria and the @NGRPresident grievously breached the Constitutional provisions and process for amendment of legislation and therefore cannot foist another National Anthem on us.


“I refuse to join them in the Kangaroo Act of violating the Constitution. “
