Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Addresses Buhari's Lack of Qualifications to be Nigeria's President

IPOB USA

In this address Nnamdi Kanu speaks on Buhari’s lack of qualifications stemming from his not being born a Nigerian and also his lack of WAEC certificate.

Hardo Adamu, was a nomadic Fulani trader from Niger Republic and later became a bodyguard in the Emir of Daura’s palace, which made him settle in Daura, Katsina. He was borne in Niger Republic, not Nigeria.

According to the Nigerian Constitution (Section 25) to be considered a Nigerian citizen by birth the following conditions must be met.

(a) every person born in Nigeria before the date of independence, either of whose parents or any of whose grandparents belongs or belonged to a community indigenous to Nigeria;

Provided that a person shall not become a citizen of Nigeria by virtue of this section if neither of his parents nor any of his grandparents was born in Nigeria.

(b) every person born in Nigeria after the date of independence either of whose parents or any of whose grandparents is a citizen of Nigeria; and

(c) every person born outside Nigeria either of whose parents is a citizen of Nigeria.

Kanu Speaks on Nigerian Judiciary and Constitution

IPOB USA

In this address Mazi Nnamdi Kanu explains, using references in the Nigerian constitution, how in fundamental ways his trial has not proceeded according to Nigerian law. He also reveals that agitating for self-determination is not a crime according to Nigerian law.

Treasonable felony is defined in Chapter 6 Section 41 of the Nigerian Criminal Code as:

Any person who forms an intention to effect any of the following purposes, that is to say-

 (a)            to remove during his term of office otherwise than by constitutional means the President as Head of State of the Federation and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces thereof; or

(b)            to likewise remove during his term of office the Governor of a State; or

(c)            to levy war against Nigeria in order by force or constraint to compel the President to change his measures or counsels, or in order to put any force or constraint upon, or in order to intimidate or overawe any House of the National Assembly or any other Legislature or legislative authority; or

(d)            to instigate any foreigner to make any armed invasion of Nigeria or of any of the territories thereof; and manifests such intention by an overt act, is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for life.

Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB have openly discussed Buhari’s lack of qualification but have not attempted to forcefully remove him. The same applies to Nigeria’s governors in Biafraland whose removal Kanu advocated according to the electoral process. This eliminates definitions (a) and (b). IPOB’s nonviolent campaigning for Biafra Restoration eliminates (c) and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has never instigated foreigners to invade Nigeria, which eliminates (d).

Agitating for self determination is not listed as a definition of treasonable felony. Ironically Nigerian Law recognizes the rights of all peoples to self determination. Chapter A9 Article 20 of the laws of the Federation of Nigeria says:

  1. All peoples shall have right to existence. They shall have the unquestionable and inalienable right to self-determination. They shall freely determine their political status and shall pursue their economic and social development according to the policy they have freely chosen.

  2. Colonized or oppressed people shall have the right to free themselves from the bonds of domination by resorting to any means recognized by the international community.

  3. All peoples shall have the right to the assistance of the States Parties to the present Charter in their liberation struggle against foreign domination, be it political, economic or cultural.

Self determination is recognized by even Nigerian Law.
