Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is not a Nigerian because his father is from Niger Republic.

Fani-Kayode said this while reacting to the claim by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, is not a Nigerian by birth but a Cameroonian.

According to the APC, Atiku was born on November 25, 1946, in Jada, now Adamawa State, then in Northern Cameroun, “and is, therefore, a citizen of Cameroon.”

However, Fani-Kayode in reaction via his Twitter handle, argued that Atiku is a bonafide Nigerian by birth contrary to claim by the APC-led government.

He wrote:

“When a non-Nigerian (Buhari) 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.”
