Jada, Atiku’s Birth Place Was Part Of Northern Cameroon – Premium Times Fact Check

Jada History

Atiku Abubakar is from Jada town in Adamawa
State of Nigeria. However, Jada used to be in Ganye Local Government
Area in Adamawa. Ganye is regarded as the mother of the whole Chamba
tribe.

This area was never part of Nigeria legally until the
February 1961 plebiscite where the people of the then Northern Cameroon
voted to join Nigeria.

The area had been entrusted to Britain
by a League of Nations mandate in 1919 and later as Trust Territory by
the United Nations in 1946, according to an article published on
Myculturebase.

A plebiscite was held in British Cameroons to
determine whether the people preferred to stay in Cameroon or align with
Nigeria. While Northern Cameroon preferred a union with Nigeria,
Southern Cameroon chose alignment with the mother country. On June 1,
1961, Northern Cameroon became part of Nigeria, and on October 1, 1961,
the southern territory dissolved into Cameroon.

Ganye, which
incorporates Atiku’s birthplace of Jada was the headquarters of British
Cameroons, but following the plebiscite, joined Nigeria.

Though
Mr Kanu is correct about the historical origin of Atiku’s Jada, it is,
however, instructive to note that when Mr Abubakar was on November 25,
1946 born to a Fulani trader and farmer Garba Abubakar, Jada village and
other parts of Chamba land in the then Northern Cameroon were still
known as British Cameroons.

With the defeat of Germany in World
War I, Kamerun became a League of Nations mandate territory and was
split into French Cameroons and British Cameroons in 1919.

While
France integrated the economy of their part of Cameroon with that of
France, the British administered theirs from neighbouring Nigeria,
making Atiku’s Jada a British franchise.

Aside from these
historical twists, the fact, however, remains that the PDP presidential
candidate is legally a Nigerian as Jada became a full Nigerian territory
after the plebiscite 59 years ago.
