The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu on Friday said President Muhammadu Buhari doesn’t deserve to be sworn on the 29th of May as the president of Nigeria.
Kanu who is reputed for occasionally releasing of broadcast said this in his new broadcast. He described the Nigerian President as a deceptive leader as well as impostor.
Kanu who has been a controversial figure among his people and Nigeria alike pointed out to the controversies surrounding the issue of Buhari’s West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) certificate, saying the president never presented it before he was first elected.
Kanu said: “Jubril/Buhari has no basis to present himself to be sworn in on the 29th. That was why the impostor said education is no longer important.
“If truly no man is above the law and the Constitution of the land is supreme. If the constitution is supreme and is meant to guide the conduct of civilised men within a specifically defined geo-political area, then let me remind all the sophisticated morons in Nigeria that their constitution says every contender for the presidency must present a verifiable school certificate (WAEC) which neither the dead Buhari had nor his replacement Jubril ever did.
“Those that consider themselves as citizens of southern Nigeria has been butchered into fear and docility. I weep for the cowards but its their country, they can do whatever they like with it. Nigerians and certain individuals with Biafran names love slavery, we in IPOB don’t.
“How dumb are Nigerians and their miserable law enforcement and judiciary. When written laws are made not to apply differently to a section of populace like the Fulani, in the instance of Nigeria, then everybody is a fool. Why some people still pretend they don’t know what IPOB is fighting for is beyond me.
“I am afraid for the dwindling thinking capacity of your average miserable Nigerian. They can’t revolt, they can’t protest…..those that have the courage to protest are called all manner of unprintable names but they continue to suffer and complain but lack the courage to do anything about it.
The IPOB leader was also resolute in his statement, as he stated that the quest for freedom will not be in any way jettisoned.
“Until Biafra is completely set free, we shall continue to agitate because, to me, freedom means to be able to be yourself day in and day out. And not be punished for it. To live without mental, physical, emotional and spiritual shackles or constraints. And if I feel like my rights are being violated in any of those four realms, then I consider it a massive violation to my God-given right to live in freedom.” He said,

2019 Poll: Political parties created logistics problems for us -INEC
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that a large number of political parties that participated in the 2019 general elections created a lot of logistics problem for the commission.
Speaking with newsmen in Ilorin, Kwara state’s capital, Mohammed Haruna, the National Commissioner in charge of Kwara, Kogi and Nasarawa States, revealed that there were 799 litigations from the 2019 general elections across the country.
INEC organised a workshop in Kwara to review the 2019 general elections.
According to the National Commissioner, Jigawa had no petition from the election, Kwara had only three petitions and that Imo topped the list with 77 petitions.
Haruna, who further stated that there were over 800 million pre-election cases across the country that arose from political parties’ primary elections said something needed to be done about the numbers of the political parties registered.
“So you can see that with these kinds of problems we had, there is really a need to look at the number of political parties.
“We really need to do something about the 91 political parties, not just the quantity which generally speaking, the public has begun to complain that 93 political parties are on the high side,” he added.
While noting that 76 political parties contested for the Presidential election, he admitted that this was the source of the serious logistics problem that the commission had.
“We underestimated the kind of logistical problem that implied the size of the ballot papers, result sheets and so on.
“By the time these materials started arriving, we realise that it was a huge logistical problem.
“We are lucky, we had the Nigerian Air Force to help with the movement of the materials, they have always been helping us,” Haruna said.
