Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the petition by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he is not a Nigerian.
Atiku speaking through his media aide, Paul Ibe, said;
“It is an insult to Nigerians and the office of Vice President which Atiku Abubakar occupied for eight years, for the APC to question his nationality.”
“That is idiotic. It is idiotic. And it is 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.”
