By: Amarachukwu Akaigwe

The lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani, has warned the ruling All Progressives Congres, APC, over the claim that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is not a Nigerian.

The APC had yesterday filed a motion at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja.

The Party, in the petition filed by its lead counsel, Lateef Fagbemi faulted the candidacy of Atiku in the election, claiming that Atiku is a Cameroonian and not a Nigerian citizen.

APC, hence stated that the former Vice President petition against President Muhammadu Buhari, its own candidate, should be dismissed for lacking in merit.

Shehu Sani said the claims could reignite frosty issues between Nigeria and Cameroon.

He tweeted, “The ruling had Be cautious in your politics not to reignite Nigeria Cameroun frosty historical issues, so that they don’t renew claims to the old Sardauna province and then we will end up loosing a portion of our northern territory like the Bakassi.”
