The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is currently delivering a broadcast with a focus on the qualifications required to run for the post of the President in Nigeria.

Kanu’s broadcast was in reaction to comments made by Festus Keyamo (SAN), that one does not necessarily need a WAECcertificate to become President of Nigeria.

Naija News had reported earlier that Keyamo, who was the spokesperson of the 2019 Buhari Campaign Organization (BCM), made this comment last Sunday when he appeared on Channels Television.

While answering questions on the eligibility of President Muhammadu 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 during a live broadcast which is ongoing on Radio Biafra, Kanu said: “The ignorant lawyer went on to say you don’t need WAEC certificate to become a president.

“This clearly unlearnable and quack senior advocate of Nigeria will end up as a judge in Nigeria,” he stated.

Speaking further, Kanu said: “I am stating tonight, write it down that Nnamdi Kanu said that the dead Buhari was not qualified to run for office.

“I want to prove tonight that the dead Buhari is not a Nigerian by birth and should not have contested the election in 2015.

“The fact that you were born in Katsina is not enough to be a Nigerian.
Your father and grandfather must be a Nigerian for him to contest the election.

“Buhari’s parents were not born in Nigeria, therefore, Buhari, the late one should not have contested the election.
Even the Buhari that contested and won the election against Jonathan in 2015 should not have contested the election.

“The dead Buhari was born in Niger Republic so if the dead Buhari was not qualified who is Jubril from Sudan to be qualified?” He asked.

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