Following claims by the All Progressives Congress, APC, that former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the just concluded general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is not a Nigerian, Nigerians on the social media have reacted in different ways to the allegation.

The APC had yesterday filed a motion at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja stating that Atiku is not a Nigerian.

The Party in its 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’s petition against President Muhammadu Buhari, its own candidate, should be dismissed for lacking in merit.

Many Nigerians on Twitter condemned the claim by the ruling party, saying that it does not make sense.

Here are some of such reactions:

@tonyakabuno, “After so much time wasted by @OfficialAPCNg in replying to the strong petition of @atiku and @OfficialPDPNig, this is the response?

“This laughable response from APC’s legal team, confirms that the OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE provided by Atiku seems to have unsettled APC & Buhari.”

@NeduGodwin “The most important question is did he win?”

Judex_02464, “Nigeria is a joke and the President is the one eligible with no degree.”
