Nnamdi Kanu’s Jabs Hit APC, PDP Hard
Nigeria News takes a look at the Nnamdi Kanu’s various jabs at the politicians.
Apologies to the late Afro music legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. “Yabis” was one the words he used regularly to make mockery of military governments in those days of dictatorship.
Unlike Fela who stood his ground and refused to jump bail each time he was arrested by the police and soldiers, the new sheriff in town is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu who had since Jumped bail and put in problem his PDP friends who stood for him at the court.
Kanu became a fugitive a few days after the court granted him bail. He left Nigeria through the back door only to appear in Jerusalem, Israel a few months after.
The IPOB leader had been junketting from one European country to another, throwing “Yabis” to Nigerian government and politicians.
When Kanu alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari was the Jubril of Sudan, the members of the public asked him to substantiate his claim. But members of the PDP rolled out drums to celebrate the allegation as they castigated the All Progressives Congress of parading an impostor as Nigerian president.
Kanu gave some indications with which to identify Jibril then, saying that he could not wave to the crowd.
However, all these were put to rest when Buhari spoke in faraway Poland a few days to his 76th birthday that he was not a Jubril as he expresses dismay over the fake news.
Kanu had since come up with another “Yabis”, saying that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar is from Cameroon.
He said there was a mark in Atiku’s buttock which made him a Cameroonian and not Nigerian. Perhaps, there may be a need to investigate Atiku beyond the marks and corruption.
What is the relationship between Kanu and Atiku to the extent that the IPOB leader could describe the marks on Atiku’s buttocks?
Now, PDP is angry. The party is calling on the Federal Government to call Kanu to order. This sounds funny because the government itself has declared Kanu wanted and it is only PDP members who stood as his sureties can say where the IPOB leader is right now.
However, we should not quickly discard the claims of this new sheriff, even though he has no gut to lurk around the country.
The recent events of Buhari making some blunders in his campaign could be a testimonial to Kanu’s assertion that the president is an impostor from Sudan.
Buhari once presented a flag to a presidential candidate instead of a gubernatorial candidate at the APC rally in Akwa Ibom.
In Ondo on Tuesday, Buhari committed another blunder when he told the crowd that he was elected in 2005 instead of 2015.
Looking critically at this, there is a
