Nnamdi Kanu has said that President Muhammadu Buhari and the late Biafra leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, lacked the powers to decide for over 180 million Nigerians on the unity of the country.
Reacting to the claims by Buhari that he had agreed with Ojukwu in 2003 that Nigeria would remain a united and indivisible political entity, Kanu who doubted the authenticity of the claim as Ojukwu is no longer alive to corroborate or refute it, insisted that both leaders could not have decided the fate of millions of Nigerians on such sensitive issue without inputs from the people.
He argued that the various ethnic nationalities in Nigeria deserve the right to decide whether or not they would continue to co-exist as one country.
According to him, referendum remains the only authentic barometer to gauging the willingness of the various ethnic nationalities in Nigeria to remain under one political entity.
Kanu said that Buhari and other apostles of one indivisible Nigeria” were only postponing the evil day as there is nothing to show that Nigerians are willing to continue as one people.
