The supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar is an “indigene” of Cameroon.
Kanu stated this on Saturday during his live broadcast from London, UK. He said Atiku’s region of Adamawa state was in Cameroon until 1961 when a referendum was conducted and the region was accepted as part of Nigeria. Hence, originally, Atiku and his kinsmen from the southern Cameroonian region are not real Nigerians.
Kanu further blamed Atiku for the failure of Alex Ekwueme in the 1999 PDP presidential primaries.
Kanu said: “Some of you do not understand that the person behind the failure of Ekwueme in 1999 during PDP convention was Atiku.
“Do you know that Atiku Abubakar is from Cameroon? His area of Adamawa was in Cameroon.
Kanu, however, warned Nigerians against voting in the forthcoming 2019 election.
“By voting, all you are doing is perpetuating the misery of our people.
“To vote in the zoo means to endorse the 1999 fraudulent constitution. By voting, all you are doing is perpetuating the misery of our people,” Kanu said.
On the issue of referendum during the 2019 election, Kanu called on the government to sign the document given to them.
According to him, signning the referendum document is the only way the 2019 election would not be boycotted by Biafrans.
“Those pressuring me to call off the election boycott know what to do, sign that document I gave to you and I will call off the election boycott, you know what the document contains.”
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, had some days ago declared February 16, 2019 date for a referendum to ascertain the number of Nigerians who want a separate Biafra republic through a peaceful and democratic process.
