A socio-political group, Amalgamated Atiku Support Group, has lambasted the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), for claiming that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is not a Nigerian.
The minister had told a Federal High court in Abuja on Monday that Atiku is not eligible to contest for president in Nigeria because he is not a Nigerian citizen.
In a statement on Tuesday by its Director of Media, Remi Adebayo, the group accused Malami of being blinded by the 2023 presidential election by insinuating that Atiku is not eligible to vie for the office of the president.
The group added that it was laughable for a Chief Law Officer of the federation to behave the way Malami did on the citizenship of Atiku.
