Atiku Finally Visits America After 12 Years

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is currently in the United States.

Since 2005 while he was still the vice-president of Nigeria, Atiku has not visited the US after the authorities began investigating a bribery scandal involving William Jefferson, former US congressman.

Atiku was accused of demanding a bribe of $500,000 to facilitate the award of contracts to two American telecommunication firms in Nigeria, an allegation he denied.

On Thursday, he was accompanied by Senate President Bukola Saraki who is the director-general of his campaign; Uche Secondus, national chairman of the PDP and some key members of the opposition party.
