Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the man spearheading the Biafra movement group (the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)), in a recent broadcast alleges that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is not a citizen of Nigeria.
“Do you know that Atiku Abubakar is from Cameroon? His area of Adamawa was in Cameroon” Kanu said on Radio Biafra on Saturday.
Mr. Kanu is currently on exile 16months after he disappeared from his country home in Umuahia, Abia State, following the Nigerian Army operation python dance at his residence. He was seen few months ago praying in Israel, he was also interview on an Israeli National TV.
His recent broadcast on Radio Biafra is however believed to be from London, United Kingdom.
Kanu further blamed Atiku for Alex Ekwueme’s failure in 1999 to emerge as the presidential candidate of the PDP.
“Some of you do not understand that the person behind the failure of Ekwueme in 1999 during PDP convention was Atiku,” he said.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo won the PDP presidential primary election in 1999 and eventually picked Mr. Atiku as his running mate. Atiku was Obasanjo’s deputy from 1999 to 2007.
Mr. Kanu also spoke about President Muhammadu Buhari who he referred to as “Jibril” over his alleged illegal removal of Chief Justice Walter Onnoghen.
“Nobody is saying you cannot remove the chief justice but there are certain procedures to follow. But someone will sit down in Aso rock and say “I won’t follow the procedure.”
“That was what I’m saying about black people. Look at what they are doing to people, imagine what they would do if they win again.”
He further called on all Biafrans to boycott the forthcoming February 16 election, saying that all Biafrans should sit at home on that day.
“By voting, all you are doing is perpetuating the misery of our people.
“To vote in the zoo means to endorse 1999 fraudulent constitution. By voting, all you are doing is perpetuating the misery of our people,” he said.
