The former vice-president is the candidate of the opposition PDP for the 2019 general election

Former media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Dr. Doyin Okupe has disclosed that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, will be traveling to the United States by the end of November.

The former Vice President has since been criticized by the opposition party over his inability to travel to the US over alleged corruption matters.

In a post on his Twitter page, Okupe wrote: “Atiku contested Presidency in 2007 under AC. Nobody called him a thief then, neither was he known then to be corrupt. I often wonder if the Atiku running for President today is the same that ran in 2007. This orchestrated campaign of calumny against Atiku will not stand because it’s false.

“His Excellency and incoming President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will be traveling to the US for official and some public engagements by the end of Nov 2018.”
