Jada Atiku's Birth Place Was Part Of Northern Cameroon- Premium Times Fact Check by kahal29: 6:53am On Apr 15
Jada History

Atiku Abubakar is from Jada town in Adamawa State of Nigeria. However, Jada used to be in Ganye Local Government Area in Adamawa. Ganye is regarded as the mother of the whole Chamba tribe.

This area was never part of Nigeria legally until the February 1961 plebiscite where the people of the then Northern Cameroon voted to join Nigeria.


The area had been entrusted to Britain by a League of Nations mandate in 1919 and later as Trust Territory by the United Nations in 1946, according to an article published on Myculturebase.

A plebiscite was held in British Cameroons to determine whether the people preferred to stay in Cameroon or align with Nigeria. While Northern Cameroon preferred a union with Nigeria, Southern Cameroon chose alignment with the mother country. On June 1, 1961, Northern Cameroon became part of Nigeria, and on October 1, 1961, the southern territory dissolved into Cameroon.

Ganye, which incorporates Atiku’s birthplace of Jada was the headquarters of British Cameroons, but following the plebiscite, joined Nigeria.


Though Mr Kanu is correct about the historical origin of Atiku’s Jada, it is, however, instructive to note that when Mr Abubakar was on November 25, 1946 born to a Fulani trader and farmer Garba Abubakar, Jada village and other parts of Chamba land in the then Northern Cameroon were still known as British Cameroons.

With the defeat of Germany in World War I, Kamerun became a League of Nations mandate territory and was split into French Cameroons and British Cameroons in 1919.

While France integrated the economy of their part of Cameroon with that of France, the British administered theirs from neighbouring Nigeria, making Atiku’s Jada a British franchise.

Aside from these historical twists, the fact, however, remains that the PDP presidential candidate is legally a Nigerian as Jada became a full Nigerian territory after the plebiscite 59 years ago.

- Hope one day you wont wake up to news of Azikiwe, Balewa, Awolowo not being Nigerians as their Grandfathers may have bore them somewhere else, just because of partisan politics above the unity of the Nation.

- Does that mean a competent court of law may one day void Adamawa, Yobe, Taraba votes in an election because it could not differntiate between a man born before 1961 and after 1961?

- How does a sane govt use its own hands to divide its Nation. How do you look the elderly Adamawa, Taraba, Yobe in the eyes and call them non - citizens?

- When Senior advocates/Lawyers begin to take cue from a group which they had proscribed to be a terrorist group does call for serious concern, it makes belief that all other statements coming from same source may be accurate aswell.

For the brainless IPOB miscreants here, who have been going about doing copy and paste from God knows where about APC's reply to Athiefku Petition.

Let me school you a bit here:



1. Atiku is a Citizen of Nigeria.

2. Nobody is contesting his Citizenship and that of his Jada People of Adamawa.

3. What are the ways one can become a citizen of Nigeria?
a) BY BIRTH
B) BY REGISTRATION
C) BY REFERENDUM
D) BY NATURALIZATION


4) Out of above methods, it is only a person who becomes a CITIZEN By BIRTH Is Qualified To Contest for the Office Of The President.

5. Can Athiefku and His Jada Cameroon vote and be voted for? Yes because they are Citizens of Nigeria by Referendum.

6) Can they ( Atiku and Jada Brothers) contest and be voted for up to the post of the Vice Presidency? YES because the Constitution paved way for them?

7. The question is: Did Atiku fulfill the Constitutional requirements to contest for the post of the president?

8 . The Answer is what the APC wants the Appeal court to determine, because one of the requirements is that you MUST A Citizen By BIRTH To Qualify.

9. That you are citizen of Nigeria by other means such as Referendum, Naturalization, Registration etc can only take you the office of the Vice President and not that of the President according to the 1999 Constitution we operate.

What is hard here to understand?

Its clear to every reasonable person in this country with the exception of the zombie above that the APC rigged the presidential election. All these baseless allegations is just aimed at distracting Nigerians from the issues at hand which have always been their antics as the number 1 propagandist organization of the world. All ur(APC/Buhari) effort to derail from the argument of rigging have failed n will continue to fail, u can never evade wat have already befallen u. Nigeria n Nigerians must be delivered from this failed administration, a government that cares less abt the security of its citizens and a president who take pride in his self acclaimed poor financial status on the pretext of integrity is underserving of a development and prosperity orriented nation like Nigeria. His gay cows deserves his guidance n Nigerians deserves good security n developmental policies....

Non-sense claims by men that are supposely educated. Can we now begin to lay claim that the southern Cameronians are Nigerians?
Atiku is and ll remain a nigerian, a productive one at that.

Atiku like Dangote is putting smiles on the faces of hundreds of his employees.

Unlike Bubu that has succeeded in duplicating and spreading poverty.

We all know this historical fact.

Kudos to porn director for bringing this to limelight and causing his own already frustrated people more agony over a Fulani Muslim's presidential ambitions.

I just hope that those who loved Kanu for the Jubril al Sudani body double allegations, will even love him more for a verifiable factual history of Atiku's Cameroonian heritage.

What a tragedy that even this illiterate does not understand the constitutional requirement of presidential eligibility by virtue of birth.

Has Atiku denied that he was not born in Cameroon and held a Cameroonian birth certificate for the first 15years of his life and sang the Cameroonian anthem in school?

Has anyone said Atiku is not a Nigerian now, by virtue of the 1961 assimilation of his region of Cameroon into Nigeria?

But did the constitution not state that to be eligible for Nigerian Presidency, the candidate must have been born by Nigerians and born within Nigeria?

Atiku is a Nigerian, but not Nigerian enough according to the constitution, to be able to qualify for the Nigerian Presidency.

Nnamdi Azikiwe, PC , (16 November 1904 – 11 May 1996),

Abubakar Tafawa Balewa , KBE (December 1912 – 15 January 1966)


Azikwe and Balewa weren't born Nigerians but became the first leaders of Nigeria.


APC needs to go for medical check up.

Keep quiet, you fail to apply the interpretation of the Nigerian Constitution in your write ups. The Constitution clearly says anyone born After the Plebiscite which was 51 years ago. Was Atiku born 51 years ago? You can continue to deceive your gullible followers. Schmuck
