Buhari vs Atiku: Ex-Vice President opens up on true nationality, reveals where his parents hail from


The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku has revealed his true nationality.
The PDP presidential candidate debunked notions that he was Cameroonian by birth and thus not qualified to contest the election of 23 February, 2019.
Atiku was born in Jada in 1946, in present day Adamawa state, but then part of Northern Cameroon.
He said he was born by Nigerian parents and therefore “a citizen of Nigeria by birth.”
This was part of his response to the All Progressives Congress, APC, petition before the Presidential election tribunal.
According to the former Vice President, his father, Garba Atiku Abdulkadir was a Nigerian by birth who hailed from Wurmo in present day Sokoto State.
He further revealed that his mother, Aisha Kande was also a Nigerian who hailed from Dutse in present day Jigawa State.
“The parents of the 1st Petitioner (Atiku) are both Fulani, a community/tribe indigenous to Nigeria”, his lawyers said.
“The birth of the 1st Petitioner in Jada, in present day Adamawa State of Nigeria was occasioned by the movement of his paternal grandfather called Atiku who was an itinerant trader, from Wurmo in present day Sokoto State to Jada in the company of his friend, Ardo Usman.
