The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar and Nigeria’s Senate President Bukola Saraki were seen at an airport in Washington, the United States of America.
Atiku’s arrival at the Washington Dulles Airport, was met with a bunch of flowers. This is the first time Atiku is going to USA since a restriction hindering him from going there was reportedly lifted.
A number of reports alleged that the APC presidential candidate may be arrested if he steps his foot in the states due to his connection with a US Congressman Williams Jefferson. This allegedly made him to avoid going to the states. Atiku had reportedly facilitated a deal with the legislator to help with bettering broadband services in Nigeria; this was during the tenure of President Olusegun Obasanjo when Atiku was Vice-President.
Former Minister of Aviation Osita Chidoka confirmed Atiku’s visit to America in a tweet.
