Court Fixes A Date For Atiku Abubakar's Hearing Over A Suit Challenging His Citizenship

Atiku Abubakar GCON, the Nigerian former Vice President and Presidential aspirant for the Peoples Democratic Party in the previous general election, is said to be facing a court challenge contesting his citizenship on the 6th of December 2021.

Before and after the 2019 presidential election, the former presidential candidate has encountered numerous challenges. His citizenship has been called into question by several opposing groups. While he claimed to be a Nigerian, he was uncertainly identified as a Cameronian, a country that shares a border with Nigeria.

However, a new lawsuit has been launched against Nigeria's former Vice President at the Federal High Court in Abuja, with his hearing scheduled for December 6th. One cannot predict the outcome of the hearing until the court affirms and confirms it.

Even though many concerned Nigerians including PDP members have proved that the suit against the PDP champion's citizenship is only a plot to smear his reputation and possibly derail his political ambitions. The issue is currently before the court, and Nigerians are waiting to learn whether the plaintiff's claim against Atiku Abubakar is factual or only a fallacy intended to hinder his political future.

According to the information gathered, via the official Twitter handle of NaijaPR, it was reported that "The federal high court in Abuja has fixed December 6 to hear a suit challenging the citizenship of Atiku Abubakar, former Vice-President"

Dear readers, what are your thoughts on the new court case challenging Atiku Abubakar's citizenship despite serving as Nigeria's Vice President for two terms?
