Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has said he called president Buhari a Sudanese, and also told Atiku Abubakar to compel Buhari to go for a DNA test to prove his claims.
Nnamdi Kanu who is on the wanted list of the Nigerian government and is expected to face return to the country to face trial in court.
Kanu mentioned this on live TV on Sunday, declaring his willingness to offer legal advice to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
He believes that if President Muhammadu Buhari will only be willing to take a DNA to validate his points. Speaking about the recent controversy over the citizenship of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Kanu beliefs that the only person who is not a Nigerian is Buhari because he is rather a Sudanese.
In His words, “I will offer free legal advice to Atiku live on air in the hope that they will use it because it is obvious Atiku won the election and APC are deploying all instruments of coercion at the disposal of the Nigerian state to deny him his mandate.
Speaking further about his position as regards whether Atiku is a citizen of Nigeria or not, he said:
“Between Atiku and the man occupying Aso Rock, only Atiku is a Nigerian, the other is Sudanese. Atiku is not a Nigerian by birth but he is by choice, through referendum at the age of 15.
“But the other person is neither a Nigerian by birth nor by choice. Atiku should demand for Buhari’s DNA and if it turns out that the person in Aso rock is Buhari, I will drop my agitation immediate.
He also criticized Atiku Abubaka’ legal team, saying that their defense is weak and unnecessary.
“The weak and porous argument Atiku’s defence team is making in response to this line of attack by APC, is to say that, it is ludicrous to allege that a man who became Nigeria’s vice-president, who has lived, invested and paid tax in the country for years is not a citizen.
“This is a wholly unnecessary digression that failed to address the constitutional question of place of birth as key qualification for anybody seeking to become the president of Nigeria.
“That Atiku was the Vice President is not the issue at hand but rather his suitability as defined by the constitution of Nigeria.
“However, APC putting up the argument in court is a vindication that everything I say on Radio Biafra is the truth.
“It may appear outlandish and unbelievable at first, but eventually history always vindicate me. It is now over to Atiku’s team to unleash what they have against Jubril”, Kanu said.
