A group under the auspices of ‘Concerned Citizens of Sokoto State has dismissed as lies claims of the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, that he is an indigene of Sokoto State.
The Sokoto State Coordinator of the Group, retired Squadron Leader Aminu Bala Sokoto, disclosed this when he addressed newsmen in Sokoto. He said the former Vice President should look for his origin elsewhere and not Sokoto State.
According to the former Airforce Senior Officer,
“Atiku who is now over 72 years old has never associated himself with Wurno , headquarters of Wurno Local Government of Sokoto State, where he claims his grandfather hailed from.
“His false and atrocious claim is just coming now that he is being bogged down by a protracted electoral litigation sequel to the 2019 Presidential elections.
“He is now claiming to hail from Sokoto and Jigawa States. He has forgotten that, in 2003 he had maliciously described the people of Sokoto, Kano and the other North Western States as ungrateful power zealots”.
Retired squadron leader Aminu Bala Sokoto, said the people of Wurno and by extension, Sokoto State, is strongly and vehemently rejecting and dispensing Atiku Abubakar.
