The presidential candidate of PDP Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the petition by the All Progressives Congress (APC) doubting his nationality.
Speaking through his media aide, Paul Ibe, who spoke with Saturday Sun, said it was an insult to Nigerians and the office of Vice President which he occupied for eight years, for the APC to question his nationality.
Regarding the petition as idiotic, Paul said it was ridiculous for the ruling APC to make such petition against a former vice President of the nation.
“That is idiotic. It is idiotic. And it is ridiculous. Atiku Abubakar is a former Vice President of Nigeria.
“Are they telling us that a former Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is not a Nigerian? That is disrespectful to Nigerians and for the office he has held, which other people will hold and will continue to hold.
“Everything must not be on the alter of politics,”
