The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar will be travelling to the United States by the end of November.
The revelation was made by Doyin Okupe, a former aide to immediate past president Goodluck Jonathan while reacting to report of the alleged travel ban placed on Atiku by the US.
Okupe who stated that the campaign of corruption against Atiku will not stand because it’s false, wrote on Twitter;
“Atiku contested Presidency in 2007 under AC. Nobody called him a thief then, neither was he known then to be corrupt. I often wonder if the Atiku running for President today is the same that ran in 2007. This orchestrated campaign of calumny against Atiku will not stand because it’s false.
“Concerning the little understood but copiously exaggerated supposed travel ban on Atiku. His Excellency and incoming President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will be travelling to the US for official and some public engagements by the end of Nov 2018.”
Atiku has since been criticised by the opposition party over his inability to travel to the US, over alleged corruption matters.
Recall also that Otunba Gbenga Daniel, DG, Atiku Presidential Campaign Organization (APCO), had disclosed that the United States has expressed readiness to give visa to the former vice president.
