The former aide and author also warned that the claim by the APC might instigate Cameroon government to take action by dragging Nigeria to ICJ where they likewise claimed Bakassi from Nigeria in 2002.

He said: Someone who made Nigeria the world headquarters for extreme poverty is accusing a man who was Vice President in a government that DOUBLED Nigeria’s Per Capita Income, of not being a Nigerian. Even Muhammadu Buhari’s accusations are POOR! Everything around him screams POVERTY.

“Since President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress are claiming that Adamawa people are Cameroonians, I will not be surprised if Cameroon goes to the International Court again to lay claim to Adamawa just as they laid claim to Bakassi and won before the International Court of Justice on October 10, 2002. ” He said.

On his own part, the former Minister of Aviation, Fani-Kayode teased Buhari whose father was from Niger Republic.

He said “When a non-Nigerian accuses a bona fide Nigerian of being a foreigner you begin to appreciate why those that have insisted on calling Nigeria a zoo may have a point. It is only in Nigeria that a man whose father was from Niger Republic can accuse others of being foreigners!”
