Nnamdi Kanu and Bubu - Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Reveals What Made Buhari Nigeria’s President

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, says the Nigerian constitution made President Muhammadu Buhari, who he says has no WAEC certificate to contest the Presidential election.

Naija News reports that Kanu made this comment on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Tuesday evening.

Kanu was reacting to comments made by Festus Keyamo (SAN), that one does not necessarily need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria.

This online news platform recalls that Keyamo, who was the spokesperson of the 2019 Buhari Campaign Organization (BCM),  made this comment over the weekend when he appeared on Channels Television.

While answering questions on the eligibility of President Buhari to contest the presidential election, Keyamo said if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, you do not need a WAEC certificate to become president of Nigeria.

His words: “There are other levels of qualifications to run for the office of President. In fact, if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, by the provisions of the constitution, you do not even need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria.

“It becomes extremely foolish for anybody who is not statutorily empowered to issue WAEC certificates to come and challenge the body that has the statutory power to issue certificates,” the Senior Advocate of Nigeria had said.

Reacting, Kanu wrote on Twitter: “A defective 1999 Constitution & rotten legal system allowed Jubril/Buhari to contest for the office of @NGRPresident without the minimum qualification and proof of nationality. I will continue my lecture on Sat. April 20, 2019, at 7 pm Biafraland time. Join me!”

Meanwhile, Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian government.
