The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has said that the reason President Muhammadu Buhari refused to participate in last Saturday’s presidential debate was that he is an impostor.
President Buhari failed to participate in the presidential debate organised last Saturday by the Nigerian Election Debate Group. Buhari’s main challenger, Peoples Democratic Party’s Atiku Abubakar also declined to participate in the debate.
Reacting to this development, Kanu said the President’s action has vindicated his claims that the President was an impostor.
Kanu made this known in a radio broadcast to IPOB members on Monday.
He again accused South-East governors whom he described as “stooges” of the northern establishment of allegedly orchestrating the labelling of his group as a terrorist organisation by the Federal Government.
Kanu added, “It has come to my attention that some people may have elected to misinterpret what I said regarding election boycott.
“The same way some Lagos-Ibadan gutter media attacked my expose on Jubril but today, everything I said about the impostor is unraveling one after the other.
“This news broke this evening (Saturday) that President Buhari will not participate In the presidential debate.
“What does this tell you? It goes to confirm what I told all of you that Jubril will never participate in the presidential debate because he’s not Buhari.
“This evening, I will offer clarifications to remove whatever ambiguity mischief makers may have introduced in their desperate attempt to dampen the spirit of our people.
“I must make it categorically clear that we IPOB are boycotting the forthcoming elections starting with the February 16 presidential election.”
