The embattled leader of pro-Biafra group, Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has responded to the widespread belief that he hates the north.
Nnamdi Kanu in an exclusive interview granted to Daily Sun, debunked the report noting that former Presidents Shagari and late Yar’Adua were two good leaders who are from the North and had made their marks in Nigeria.
“People think I hate the North; that’s not true, but the only thing is that I say things the way they are, I don’t know how to tell lies to curry favours. People do not know that I love former presidents Shagari and Yar’Adua more than I love, Nnamdi Azikiwe.
“I’m saying this because when we were young and were growing up, the only notable person that built any notable infrastructure I saw with my two eyes was Shagari.
“The Enugu/Igwuocha (that the white man named Port Harcourt) Expressway, was built by Shagari.
Now, tell me who has ever done that since after Shagari, no, tell me. Which other infrastructure will you be proud of, nobody has ever done anything again.”
