This online news medium reports that the pro-Biafra leader said this in a reaction to claims by the All Progressives Congress (APC), that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate in the 2019 Presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, is “Cameroon.”
The APC had filed a motion at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, April 12 over the matter.
Kanu had said during a live broadcast on Radio Biafra in London, the United Kingdom on Saturday, February 2 that Abubakar is from Cameroon.
“Do you know that Atiku Abubakar is from Cameroon? His area of Adamawa was in Cameroon,” the IPOB leader noted.
However, speaking on Sunday on the same Radio Biafra, Kanu said if the National Assembly had amended Nigeria’s constitution Abubakar would not have been in this “mess.”
He noted: “We are here to explain the laws of the zoo, I am here to educate Binta Nyako, the entire NJC, the entire bench in Nigeria as to what the law says about Atiku Abubakar that they don’t know. I will tell them.
“I derived everything that I say this from their own constitution. The problem you have in Nigeria is that people are lazy. Mentally lazy. Fulani way of life, mentally lazy, they don’t reason very well.”
This is as he added that “INEC is the root cause of this very problem. INEC is the problem and I will prove to you why.
“Both INEC, your so-called useless National Assembly, useless to the core, who did not have the courage to amend the constitution, they put Atiku Abubakar in this mess, not Atiku Abubakar, no, they put him in this mess.
“Some of you don’t know that those of us born in Biafra between 67 and 70 cannot contest the Presidency of Nigeria.”
