Nnamdi Kanu: Jonathan was a weak president… his wife would have done better

Nnamdi Kanu: Jonathan was a weak president… his wife would have done better

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has described former President Goodluck Jonathan as a weak and incompetent leader.

In an interview with The Sun, Kanu, who has once again violated the terms of his bail, said the wife of the immediate past president would have been a better leader.

He alleged that Jonathan favoured the north at the expense of the southern part of the country.

“Jonathan is my uncle, yes. I was one of those who said Jonathan’s tenure was more or less an Igbo presidency; it’s on record I said that. But, he knew I never liked his regime because he was weak and incompetent,” he said.


“I don’t support evil; if you do good, I will tell you, if you do bad, I will say it the way it is; I don’t curry favours.

“He was weak, I said I wish it was aunty Patience Jonathan who was in-charge, she would have done better.

“Look at where Jonathan dropped us today; he never finished building the East/West Road, but, he built railway line from Abuja to Kaduna, so they will love him. Who told you that if they did not love Zik, that they will love you?”


On April 25, when Binta Nyako, justice of a federal high court in Abuja, granted him bail on health grounds, she ordered Kanu not to grant media interviews and to avoid being seen in a crowd of more than 10 people.

Kanu has not only addressed crowds on numerous occasions, he has also granted media interviews.

In May when he spoke with Al Jazeera, he was asked if he was worried that the interview could land him in trouble, but he snapped: “I don’t care.”

In his latest interview, Kanu said denying him his fundamental human rights to speak and to freely associate when he has not been convicted, speaks volumes about the “hopelessness” of the Nigerian judiciary.
