The controversial Second Republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, on Tuesday said he doesn’t hate Igbos as being misconstrued over his stance on political issues in the country.
He made this known while speaking with Daily Independent, stressing that those accusing him of hate speech over his refusal to endorse an Igbo presidency should take him to court.
“If they like let them take me to court. I said I will not support them on the grounds they are canvassing.”
“They are saying they should be made President of Nigeria because they are Igbos. And I said no. They need to elevate the Presidency of Nigeria to a higher level rather than just making it a matter of tribal, cultural, or religious convenience”.
“Many people don’t know that I have a daughter who has an Igbo mother. She is here in Abuja doing her Postgraduate degree. My first wife is an Igbo woman and she is alive. She lives in Kaduna” he said.
