The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal has dismissed the argument by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar was not a Nigerian by birth.
 Over 40 Political Parties Adopt Atiku As Presidential Candidate
In its ruling on Wednesday, the tribunal said its power does not include determining the qualification of a petitioner in an election dispute.

 The court held that the respondents ought to file a cross-petition against the qualification of Atiku for the February 23 poll and not to use it as a defence.

Buhari earlier in his reply to Atiku’s petition seeking his disqualification for not possession prerequisite academic qualifications for the office of President had urged the court to disqualify Atiku on grounds that he was not a Nigerian.

According to Buhari and APC, Jada, the birthplace of Atiku in 1946 belonged to Cameroon and not part of Northern Nigeria.
