Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted on the claim by the All Progressives Congress that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is not a Nigerian, that he held from Cameroon
The APC had yesterday filed a motion at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja.
The Party, in the petition filed by its lead counsel, L. Fagbemi faulted the candidacy of Atiku in the election, claiming that Atiku is a Cameroonian.
APC, hence stated that the former Vice President petition against President Muhammadu Buhari, its own candidate, should be dismissed for lacking in merit
Reacting , Fani-Kayode on his Twitter page queried why a ‘non-Nigerian’ will accuse Atiku of being a foreigner.
According to him, this new claim by APC has proved a point that Nigeria is a Zoo.
The former minister wrote: “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!”
“If one can said that Atiku is not a Nigeria and he should be dismissed, then the same group should also allow the Biafrans to go because they said that they are not Nigerians and they will never be.
