Contrary to media reports, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, did not hold any significant meetings with the crucial players of the United States State Department, according to former Edo State Commissioner for Information Kassim Afegbua.
This amount of doubt, desperation, boldness, wildness, and audacity, according to Afegbua’s statement released on Sunday, was “unbecoming, to say the least.”
What diminution and debasement! Some even claim that Alhaji Atiku traveled under the guise of Governor Aminu Tambuwal’s diplomatic retinue, he remarked. The news stories about his trip that we see here are tainted by his entry into the US on this pretense.
Atiku visited the United States via negotiated entrance, just like he did in 2019, according to Afegbua, who made this clear.
He claimed that the images on exhibit are of Atiku’s entourage who traveled from Nigeria to the United States to have a good time.
According to Afegbua, “Atiku Abubakar and his musketeers have again traveled to the US on negotiated entrance, just as in 2019. This is in a deliberate effort to wow his supporters and followers. This time, he was spotted marching through deserted hallways with his musketeers for picture ops to wow us at home.
He claimed that Atiku still needs to answer certain questions because he hasn’t been cleared and released from his corruption charges that have been compared to money laundering in the US.
Afegbua emphasized, “He was given negotiated entrance in 2019, exactly as now; this is his leave to give the appearance that everything was well.
Was he really previously denied entry? What factors or causes led to his initial suspension? Have those problems been resolved? Has he been let go and cleared of the charges? If there are no overtones to this ‘celebration,’ why is it happening?
