Atiku Jets Out Of Nigeria After Finally Getting US Visa



A United States of America visa has been issued to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to TheCable , a family source confirmed that the former Vice-President has been issued the visa.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is also said to have played a “critical role” in getting the visa.

There had been speculations that Atiku could not enter the US due to allegations of bribery linked to a former US congressman, William Jefferson.

Although Atiku has maintained his innocence, the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) has made continued references to the visa issue.

On Thursday, Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s Minister of Information, had cautioned the US on granting visa to Abubakar, stating that the move could be seen as taking a bias position on the 2019 general election.
