Don’t Reignite Nigeria-Cameroon Frosty Historical Issues, Shehu Sani Tells APC

The Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani has called on the All Progressives Congress to avoid reigniting ‘historical issues’ between Nigeria and Cameroon in its legal tussle with the Presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, over the outcome of the 2019 presidential election.

Senator Sani made the call in a tweet on Saturday in reaction to a motion the APC filed before the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal a day earlier, claiming that Atiku is not a Nigerian and, therefore, not qualified to have stood for the election.

He wrote:

Be cautious in your politics not to reignite Nigeria Cameroun frosty historical issues,so that they don’t renew claims to the old Sardauna province and then we will end up loosing a potion of our northern territory like the Bakassi.
