ATIKU SHUNS US TRIP FOR HoG AWARDS IN LAGOS
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has laid to rest the reports that he was meant to be at the Trade and Investment Gathering in Washington DC US. The organizers of the event had somehow listed Atiku’s name among those meant to speak at the event, stating that he would be in US between 24-26th June 2018, and would speak with the likes of Governor Nyesom Wike, Ibrahim Dankwambo, Senator Ike Rkweremmadu and Trade and Investment Minister Okechukwu Elelamah.
This announcement has raised a lot of dust as to the eligibility of the Former Vice President to visit US considering the ban on him by the US government. However, the spoke person for Atiku, Mr Paul Ibe has debunked such rumours, “We are not aware of such invitation and we do not know how they managed to put his name on their list”
However, a source who craved anonymity has instead given us an idea of the very busy itinerary of the former vice president. and on the said 24th of June which Atiku is meant to be in US, he will instead be in Lagos to be honoured at the HoG awards.
In fact his supporters are already mobilizing members of the different factions of the Atiku campaign to give him a rousing welcome at the local airport in Lagos on the 24th.
