There is no end in sight for the controversy over the true nationality of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar as he had been handed a 21-day ultimatum to return to Cameroon and re-unite with his kits and kins or seek naturalisation in Nigeria.
A group identified as the Coalition of Minority Tribes in Nigeria which gave the ultimatum at a press conference in Abuja also demanded Atiku to tender an unreserved apologies to Nigerians for allegedly concealing his true identity all the while.
This is coming on the heels of the submission by the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the election petition tribunal that Atiku is a citizen of Cameroon and not a Nigerian.
According to the coalition, what Atiku has done by concealing his identity amounts to “crimes against humanity”, insisting that he must tender an unreserved apology to Nigerians.
Secretary General of the coalition , Abdulmuminu Hassan who spoke for it said ex-President Ibrahim Babangida, refused to appoint Atiku as the Comptroller-general of the Nigerian Customs Service because he realised the true nationality of Atiku.
He therefore, gave Atiku a 21-day ultimatum to return to Cameroon to reunite with his family members.
Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu yesterday, advised Atiku to demand a DNA test for the occupant of Aso Rock to prove if he is the real President Muhammadu Buhari .
Below is the full text of the speech.
“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 unlet undetected and he aspired and held the number two position of Vice President in Nigeria.
” His consequent actions while he was Vice President of Nigeria tells of a man who was hell-bent on destroying the country. Consequently, the Conference of Minority Tribes in Nigeria wishes to use this medium to issue a 21-day ultimatum to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar return to Cameroon to reunite with his family members.
“This is important to save Nigerians the trauma of having to deal with his nationality. The Conference of Minority also wishes to advise Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to in an alternative solution seek naturalization as a Nigerian by applying to the Federal Ministry of Interior in Nigeria.
“This way Nigerians would forgive him for his sins and show him understanding since he has lived the better part of his life in Nigeria. Though at a great disservice to Nigeria.
