Atiku Kicked Out Ekwueme From PDP, Peter Obi Cannot Function As Vice President – Nnamdi Kanu

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has accused Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, of kicking Alex Ekwume out of the PDP.

Kanu alleged that Atiku kicked out the late former Vice President after the latter formed the party.

Speaking in a live radio broadcast from London, the IPOB leader wondered if Peter Obi can function as Vice President.

According to Kanu, “Ekweume founded PDP and was kicked out by this same Atiku. If the combined might of Azikiwe, Nwafor Orizu, Aguiyi Ironsi, Ekwueme and Goodluck Jonathan did not change anything, what on earth can Peter Obi do as Vice President.

“We must learn to reason like human beings. Democracy is the government of the people, and when you are not comfortable or that the system has been hijacked or compromised, the populace or the victims of that system, in this case the citizens, will go on civil protest to demand for their right.”

Recall that Nnamdi Kanu, the fugitive leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra had earlier attacked Atiku, when he stirred new dust with an earlier claim that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar is a Cameroonian.

Atiku was born in Jada, in Ganye local government of Adamawa State more than 72 years ago.

Kanu now claimed in a broadcast to his followers that Atiku’s Jada was once part of Cameroon, a claim that is historically correct, up till 59 years ago.

Kanu was referring to the situation in British Cameroon before Nigeria’s independence in 1960. Ganye, which incorporates Atiku’s birthplace of Jada was the headquarters of British Cameroon, but following a plebiscite, it chose to stay with Nigeria, to be part of the Sardauna Province, while the other part, joined Cameroon.

Meanwhile, Atiku Abubakar has challenged Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to provide evidence that he is a Cameroonian.

Kanu in his recent broadcast had said Atiku is not a Nigerian as he has always claimed.

“Do you know that Atiku Abubakar is from Cameroon? His area of Adamawa was in Cameroon,” he had said.

However, speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Paul Ibe, Atiku’s media aide, said the onus lies on Kanu to supply proof that his principal is an indigene of Cameroon.

“You media should ask him to supply the proof. It is not the man that is being accused that you will ask. It is the person who made the allegations that you will ask to bring his proof of where he (Atiku) is from or where he is not from,” he said.
