The Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has been called upon by the Coalition of Minority Tribes in Nigeria to apologise to Nigerians and find his way back to his ‘country’ Cameroon or find naturalization.
The group reacting to the claim made by the All progressives Congress (APC) challenging the citizenship of Atiku, a motion has been filed by the APC to the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja by its lead counsel, Lateef Fagbemi, stressing that the Presidential candidate is a Cameroonian and not a Nigerian.
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has concealed his identity to cover his crimes against humanity and must beg for pardon from Nigerians says the group. On Monday, Secretary-General to the group Abdulmuminu Hassan, claimed that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s refused to appoint General Ibrahim Badamosi the former head of state as the controller General of Nigerian Customs Service since he knows his true identity. Thereby giving him, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar 21 days to return to Cameroon and unite with his family.
He went futher by saying that, “this same scenario could also be the reason why former President Olusegun Obasanjo refused to allow him to succeed him as President of Nigeria in 2007. This much was stated by former president Olusegun Obasanjo in his autobiography “My Watch” where he stated in unequivocal terms that the paternity of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was “shadowy.”
“We are, therefore, constrained to state that it is such a shame that the Nigerian authorities have allowed such a sham fester for decades without detecting, and thereby causing Nigeria and Nigerians the opportunity to develop her country the way Nigerians would do”
“The Conference of Minority Tribes in Nigeria is indeed alarmed that the paternity of Alhaji Atiku was left undetected and he aspired and held the number two position of Vice President in Nigeria.”
“His relationship with Simon Ateba, a Nigerian based Cameroonian journalist that was arrested in Cameroon for being a spy is also suspect and leaves more to be imagined.”
In order to save Nigerians from this trauma, the Conference of Minority Tribes in Nigeria intend to use this means to issue a 21-day ultimatum to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to return back to Cameroon and reunite with his family.
