So what's the problem...after all Obama is from Kenya originally

Obama was born in Hawaii a US state in 1961. Hawaii was officially signed as the 50th state of USA in 1959 by President Eisenhower.

Obama is from Usa but his ancestry goes back to Kenya

Was Obama born in USA?

Was Atiku Born in Nigeria?

In America, You can't be the President unless you are born in the United States Of America. That is Citizenship by birth and not Visa Lottery or Scam Marriages

In Nigeria, you cant be the president unless you are born in Nigeria. That is Citizenship by Birth and Not Referendum.

Why are ipob yoots so uneducated?


Go school you no gree go.

Azikwe and Balewa were born before the establishment of Nigeria in 1914 but were the first leaders of Nigeria.



APC has no point against Atiku in this dimension.

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?


Can you quote the part of the constitution that expressly indicates your assertion: "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."

The moment the constitution specifically gave the requirement needed to be President, it automatically also spoke about the position of the VP.

I am sure even you know the difference between the words PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT.

To be president in Nigeria you MUST BE A CITIZEN BY BIRTH.

IF You are a VP and was not a citizen by birth this means if the President dies you can only be an ACTING PRESIDENT for a stipulated time until a new election is done. YOU ARE NOT A PRESIDENT OFFICIALLY BUT ACTING.

Oga stop twisting facts and address the topic on ground. Are the above mentioned names vying for the presidency under the 1999 constitution? Or Was the 1999 const. used for 1959 election or 1979? Atiku might hv been a VP ...the law is silent about the requirement of that, but however deal with the what the 1999 constitution says....

I believe you are a politician, APC advocate and or lawyer however, you are doing a ridiculous and terrible job at convincing the public to agree with your laughable and frivolous position.

Moronic APC members fail to realize that, Atiku was born British Citizen just like Azikwe and Balewa were and therefore, is eligible to occupy the presidency.

Anyone that does not understand this bricklayer explanation must have a problem.

But again, what can i say, his followers will never accept. some will even tell you he was born in Lagos.

The constitution is very clear about this. This is the most clear case i have seen in recent times.

Re: Jada Atiku's Birth Place Was Part Of Northern Cameroon- Premium Times Fact Check by Dee60: 9:04am On Apr 15
Clearly, PDP goofed big time by fielding Atiku!

To be President, the constitution says you must be NIGERIAN BY BIRTH.

Atiku himself has goofed on this.

There is no way a law court will go against the letters of the constitution. the paper did not say you must be a Nigerian (Atiku qualifies in that case) but it says you must be a Nigerian by birth.

End of discussion.

End of ambition.

Chapter VI, Part I, Section 131 of the constitution states that a person may be qualified for election of the office of the President if:

They are a citizen of Nigeria by birth;
They have attained the age of thirty five years;
They are a member of a political party and is sponsored by that political party;
They have been educated up to at least School Certificate level or its equivalent.

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.

IMO this is INEC's mistake. It's INEC's job to verify the eligibility of candidates before allowing them contest.
