President Muhammadu Buhari is the one to prove his nationality, because no full-blooded Nigerian has exhibited the level of wickedness and evil behaviors that have combined to bring the country and the people to their knees the way his government has done in the last four years. 

This was the response of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, as he waved aside the President’s allegation that he (Atiku) was unqualified to contest the 2019 presidential election, because he was not born a Nigerian.

Buhari’s allegation, was contained in his response to the petition of the former VP, who was his main opponent at the February 23 presidential election, where the President was declared the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Atiku, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who was defeated by the President as incumbent and who contested on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), claims he actually won the election by as much as 1.6million votes, citing records in the original INEC server to prove his contention.

In a statement, on Saturday, Atiku, Pooh-poohed the contention by Buhari that he was born a Cameroonian as his Jada community in Adamawa State was still part of the neighouring country at the time of his birth on November 25, 1946.

He said if this was the only defence the President could adduce to the allegation of massive political heist against the people of Nigeria, then it was left to the same people to ascertain who indeed had a credible story. 

The statement, signed by his spokesman, Paul Ibe, read in part: “Dear citizens of our beloved country, Nigeria, His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar, told us previously that he has verifiable and incontrovertible evidence to show that the last Presidential elections were fraudulent, not credible and did not reflect the will of the Nigerian people, and he has been vindicated by the response of the All Progressives Congress and its candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari, to his petition to the Electoral Tribunal hearing the petition he filed. 

“The former Vice President based his case on facts and statistical evidence and challenged both the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the APC, to disprove his factual submissions. 

“The fact that the APC chose to base its defence on the ridiculous assertion that the Waziri Adamawa is not a Nigerian should show to Nigerians the type of characters we have in the APC and its government, whose legitimacy runs out on May 29, 2019. 

“The position of the APC is so pedestrian and shows such straw clutching desperation on their part, that I shall not dignify it with an answer. Our lawyers would, of course, do the needful in court. But the point I want to draw the attention of Nigerians to is that both the APC and its candidate have by this infantile logic admitted to the fact that they trampled on the will of Nigerians and that their only defence is to attempt an unconstitutional redefinition of the term ‘Nigerian’.

“I am, however, confident in the Nigerian judiciary, as well as in the Nigerian people. I trust that the Tribunal will treat such a claim with the contempt it deserves. We must maintain our fidelity to the rule of law and to our fountain of origin, the 1999 Nigerian Constitution (as amended).

“Atiku Abubakar has served our nation diligently in various capacities, form the civil service, where he rose through merit, to the top of his chosen field, to public service, where, by the grace of God, he was the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Moreover, he has committed his assets and talents to developing our nation through the provision of tens of thousands of direct jobs and hundreds of thousands of indirect jobs.

“I make bold to state that those who have made Nigeria the world headquarters for extreme poverty are the very people whose Nigerianness should be in doubt, and not a man, who worked with President Olusegun Obasanjo to double the per capita Income of our nation in less than eight years.”
