Obasanjo Mounting Pressure On U.S to Lift Visa Ban On Atiku – APC

Obasanjo Mounting Pressure On U.S to Lift Visa Ban On Atiku - APC - OkayNG News

The ruling All Progressives Congress () has accused Former President Olusegun of mounting pressures on the Government of the United States to lift a visa ban on Abubakar.

okay.ng recalls that Atiku Abubakar is the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The ruling party said this in a statement sent to okay.ng by its spokesperson, Yekini Nabena, on Friday.

The APC said it has credible reports that Mr Obasanjo made moves to secure United States entry visa for Mr Abubakar.

“It is learnt that the former president who during and after leaving office insisted on Atiku’s unsuitability to govern Nigeria based on his knowledge of the latter’s extensive corrupt practices while he served as Vice President, is lobbying authorities to withdraw the ban reportedly placed on Atiku from entering the United States following a 2005 $500,000 bribery scandal that involved Atiku, his fourth wife, Jennifer and former United States Congressman, William Jefferson.

“Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s intervention in Alh. Abubakar Atiku’s ban from the United States of America is evidence of Obasanjo’s legendary hypocrisy and self-serving interest in national affairs,” Mr Nabena said.
