Atiku Is Not A Nigerian, APC Tells Tribunal


The All Progressives Congress filed a motion in respect of the  Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, saying the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the the February 23, 2019 Presidential Election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is not a Nigerian and therefore, he is ineligible to participate in the 2019 presidential election.

The party claimed that the former Vice President was born in Jada, Adamawa, in Northern Cameroon and is, therefore, a citizen of Cameroon and not a Nigerian by birth.

The APC’s reply to the petition, filed by its lead counsel, Lateef Fagbemi faulted the candidacy of Atiku in the election insisting that as a Cameroonian, he ought not to have taken part in the presidential poll of Nigeria in the first instance.
