Breaking: Atiku To Land On US Soil

Published

on

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar today is expected to make a surpricing visit to United State of American where he is expected to attend a forum.

This was made known by the Atiku’s campaign sources, he is expected to land in Washington D.C., ending a 12-year deprivation of visa to a country in which he once lived and owned properties.

Party insiders also told our source that U.S. authorities made it clear that Mr Abubakar was issued visa without preconditions, meaning he would not be detained or harrassed in any way if he entered the country. He received a U.S. visa last December.

Campaign sources told journalists on Thursday evening that Mr Abubakar would be speaking at a forum by the American Chamber of Commerce in Washington D.C. and attend other meetings aimed at boosting his presidential election standing.

Mr Abubakar’s arrival in the U.S. may rattle the ruling All Progressives Congress, which has taunted him for his inability to enter the U.S. for over a decade.

Mr Abubakar has not visited the U.S. since 2007 when he left as Nigeria’s vice-president. He served under former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Mr Obasanjo accused Mr Abubakar of fraud while in office, and he was also linked to corruption charges filed in the U.S. The politician denied all allegations of wrongdoing.

For the over 12 years that Mr Abubakar was unable to visit the U.S. American authorities had declined to issue him entry visa and there were speculation that a secret indictment had been entered against him by that country’s authorities.
