2023 Election: What Presidency, Malami Plan To Do In Order To Scuttle Atiku's 2023 Ambition

Former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is one of the Nigerians who have been eyeing the number one political office in Nigeria. Ever since he left office as Vice President to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the Waziri Adamawa who is one of the well known figures in Nigeria have continued to make attempts to become the President of Nigeria. However in recent times, whether he is a citizen of Nigeria has been questioned. According to reports from Sahara Reporters, some political heavyweights in Buhari's cabinet are drawing up plans to scuttle Atiku's plan to run in 2023. The statement from Sahara Reporters went further to state that the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami have plans to drown Atiku's ambition with a court order that will label him as a citizen of Cameroon thereby making him ineligible to contest 2023 Presidential election. Sahara Reporters also stated that the Presidency plans to deport Atiku to Cameroon so that he can stay away from the country during the 2023 presidential election.

A top source according to Sahara Reporters said " “I can confirm to you that the cabals are planning to deport Atiku. The AGF lied that he never filed anything or instituted the case against Atiku but as you could see, he filed a brief to support the non-governmental organisation that instigated it. You know he (Malami) too wants to run for President. It is a cabal thing". Atiku Abubakar contested 2019 presidential election under the platform of the People's Democratic Party, PDP but lost to President Muhammadu Buhari with over 3 million votes. Before 2019, Atiku had contested under the platform of the defunct Action Congress in 2007. Some Nigerians who reacted to it on had the following to say on Twitter.
