Femi Fani-Kayode waded the APC’s accusations of non-citizenship against Atiku Abubakar.
Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that he is not a Nigerian as his father is from Niger.
Fani-Kayode reacted to the All Progressive Congress ‘ claim that Cameroon’s Atiku Abubukar was the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the last election.
The APC had told the presidential court that by birth Abubakar is not a Nigerian and he came from Cameroon.
According to the APC, Abubakar was not qualified to contest the last presidential election because he was not a Nigerian by birth. It contended that a person must be a citizen of Nigeria by birth by section131(a) of the Constitution in order to be qualified to compete for the office of the country’s president.
The party said Abubakar was born on November 25, 1946, in Jada, now Adamawa State, then in Northern Cameroun, “and is, therefore, a citizen of Cameroon.”
Also, Fani-Kayode argued that Atiku is a bonafide Nigerian by birth contrary to claim by the APC-led government.
“When a non-Nigerian (Buhari) accuses a bona fide Nigerian of being a foreigner, you begin to appreciate why those that have insisted on calling Nigeria a zoo may have a point.
“It is only in Nigeria that a man whose father was from Niger Republic can accuse others of being foreigners,” Fani-Kayode said on his Facebook wall.
