Atiku was reacting to the statement by the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the presidential tribunal that he was not a Nigerian but a Cameroonian.

The APC had insinuated in its defence before the Presidential Election Peititions Tribunal that Atiku was a Cameroonian

In his reaction, the business tycoon described the statement as ‘pedestrian’, adding that he would allow his loyal to do the needful instead of joining issues with the ruling party.

He said this in a statement issued on Saturday by his media adviser, Paul Ibe.

He said,  “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).”

He added,  “Atiku Abubakar has served our nation diligently in various capacities, from 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.”
