The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has lambasted the governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, for using his position to campaign for someone he (Kanu) described as Jubril Al Sudani
Kanu also pointed out that the reason for his call for the boycott of the 2019 polls was not in line with the claims making the rounds of him supporting the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
The IPOB leader said this in a live radio broadcast from London, obtained by DAILY POST on Sunday.
Nnamdi Kanu said, “Now let us consider those asking us to vote. We will remember when Restructuring was the rage. Even Kadira Ahmed came to my house to interview me for a special edition of The Core program for Channels TV.
“This was before the combined Nigerian Army and Air Force came to my house to kill and bomb my village at the behest of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Igbo Governors and other political errand boys in Lagos and Abuja.
“When I say how they are, they say I don’t respect them but I want the world to know tonight that our decision to boycott the elections predates the emergence of Atiku and Obi.
“Nigeria to my knowledge is the only geographical expression I know where supposed human beings have steadfastly refused to reason.
“At the height of the restructuring debate, elder statesmen gathered from far and wide to endorse IPOB’s stance that if nothing substantial happens on the restructuring from that they were going to boycott this same elections.
“Here are some of the ways ZOO newspapers carried it:
At this point I would like every listener and those of you here with any internet accessible device to please Google search ‘NO RESTRUCTURING NO ELECTION’
“The question we must all ask is this, if Anambra boycott was not effective, why did they initially opt for boycott of 2019 polls.
“There are those born outside our sacred land in the backstreets of squalid towns like Lagos, Kanon and heaven knows where else.
“They were raised in ignorance and brought up in stupidity, oblivious to our way of life.
“They are the e-rats saying I am working for APC because I merely reiterated what I had been saying since 2014 that Biafrans will boycott the elections. Our boycott started as far back as when Atiku was still an APC member campaigning for the election of the dead Buhari.
“Where were these people in 2014 when we started our boycott of Nigeria elections campaign or have they forgotten?
“I was instrumental in the election of Peter Obi as the governor of Anambra State. I used Radio Biafra to campaign for Willie Obiano against Nigige because we felt APGA represented the interest of the people.
“Today Obiano is a monumental disappointment and using that supposedly hallowed platform to campaign for Jubril Al-Sudani. My stand on election boycott predates most of these newly recruited PDP e-rats but sadly Nigerian newspapers would not correct.
“It is a mark of consistency that we are still carrying on with the implementation of something we started in 2014. Look at the so-called no restructuring no vote group, where are they today?”
