Breaking News: APC’s claim that Atiku is not a Nigerian
The APC said Atiku’s case lacked merit as he was a Cameroonian and therefore has no right to stand for election. This group argued that Atiku was born on November 25, 1946, Jada village and other parts of Chamba land in the then Northern Cameroon were still known as British Cameroons.
Nevertheless, reacting to this, Atiku, who spoke through his media aide, Paul Ibe, to The Sun, on Friday, April 12, that it is an insult to Nigerians and the office of Vice President, which he (Atiku) occupied for eight years, for the APC to allege that he is not a Nigerian.
He said: “It is idiotic and ridiculous. Atiku Abubakar is a former vice president of Nigeria. Are they telling us that a former vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is not a Nigerian? That is disrespectful to Nigerians and for the office he has held, which other people will hold and will continue to hold. Everything must not be on the alter of politics.” Atiku’s spokesman said the APC’s allegation is disrespectful to Nigerians and the office of the Vice President which Atiku occupied for eight years.
Now, APC had filed a motion at the tribunal saying Atiku has no right to challenge the result of the 2019 presidential election as he is a Cameroonian. Atiku Abubakar, reacted vividly to the APC’s allegation the he is not a Nigerian. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential candidate for the 2019 polls, Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the claim by the All Progressives Congress (APC) the he is not a Nigerian citizen.
Reports has it that the APC filed a motion at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja saying Atiku has no right to challenge the result of the 2019 presidential election as he was not a Nigerian.
