Atiku hits back at APC, says claim on his citizenship idiotic


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate for the 2019 polls, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has dismissed the petition by the All Progressives Congress (APC) contesting his citizenship as “idiotic”.


Atiku, who spoke through his media aide, Paul Ibe, told Saturday Sun, yesterday, that it is an insult to Nigerians and the office of Vice President, which he occupied for eight years, for the APC to allege that he is not a Nigerian.

He said everything must not be about politics. Ac- cording to him, “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 altar of politics.”

Efforts to get the reaction of the PDP leadership to the development, as at the time of filing this report, was unsuccessful as the op- position party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, did not respond to repeated calls to his mobile line. (Saturday Sun)
