The former Vice President had travelled to the UK last Thursday but returned to Nigeria to kick off his presidential campaing on Sunday in Sokoto.
A top source in the Atiku Media Office told Daily Trust that: “His Excellency embarked on a private visit to the UK, shortly after the inauguration of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in Abuja. He has since returned. I think that addresses the issue.”
When asked for more details, he said,”I just left him at his residence. He moved immediately to the Airport from the venue of the inauguration on Thursday, and then came back today (yesterday).”
Another chieftain of the PDP from the North also stated that Atiku would go to the US in the course of the campaigns, but said, “now is time to kick off the campaigns in Nigeria; so, he is around to do that tomorrow (today).”
