Atiku’s United States Visa Coming – Daniel



Atiku birthday

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar would soon visit the United States of America, his campaign manager Mr Gbenga Daniel has said.

The imminent visit following approaches from the United States to him to approach for a visa is to debunk insinuations of an indictment against him by the United States law enforcement agencies, Daniel told Channels Television, on its programme Politics Today.

He also dismissed as a matter of perception insinuations of corruption leveled against Atiku.

Responding to claims that Atiku was banned from the United States upon the perception of corruption, he said:

“If you look at the newspapers in the last few days, we have read statement issued by the U.S. State Department that they have no issues or whatsoever with Atiku Abubakar.”

“And if I may chip this in, I can also confirm to you that in last few days, there have been signals from the American officials that he (Atiku) should indeed come forward and they will grant him a visa.”

On the perception of corruption, he said:

”Well, my opinion is that the issue of perception appears to have been over-flogged,” he stated during his appearance on Politics Today.

”By and large, I think as we move toward the real issues, people will begin to understand that these are just politically motivated issues.

“I have repeatedly said that it is not the Banana Republic; Nigeria as a people, we know our weaknesses, anything that is negative about our leaders, we are ready to believe it.”

“I remember when we were running the campaign in the primaries and everybody kept confronting us on this perception and we brought it out in the open that indeed it is no more than perception, politically motivated perception which unfortunately appears not to have stopped.”
