Speaking, the former governor said Atiku made it clear to him that his priority is to face and solve the problems of Nigeria rather than a trip to the US.

He said: “Let me tell you, a number of people don’t know this man (Atiku).

“He told me clearly ‘OGD (as Daniel is fondly called), go and get the visa but I am not going anywhere. I want to face the problems of this country. I want to solve the problem of Nigeria. When I finish what I want to do, if you think I have to travel, I will travel.’

“There are a lot of people who have become Presidents without going to America. But as soon as they became presidents, the other side (America) started inviting them.”
