Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has mocked the federal government over its failed bid to get the United States government to deny him visa, saying with or without a trip to America, the PDP will dislodge the President Muhammadu Buhari led All Progressives Congress, APC, in next month’s election.
The former Vice President also dismissed as cock and bull story, the allegation by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed yesterday that he has a case to answer over the collapse Platinum Habib Bank, Bank PHB.
In a statement issued yesterday, Special Assistant on Public Communication to the former Vice President, Phrank Shaibu challenged the federal government to either prove his alleged corrupt activities, or keep its peace.
Mohammed had at the hint of the US granting Atiku visa last year, cautioned the Americans not to contemplate the gesture as it might give the impression that the foreign power is supportive of the opposition party’s candidate.
But Atiku who arrived in the US on Thursday said the APC was jittery knowing that its government has failed, stressing that Buhari’s days as president of Nigeria were numbered, which explains why members of the ruling party have been running from pillar to post.
