Presidential Candidate Of The PDP, Atiku Abubakar Arrives US After 12 Years (Photos/Video)

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), yesterday arrived the United States ending a 12-year deprivation of visa to a country in which he once lived and owned properties.
The last time he visited the country was in 2007 when he was the vice-president of Nigeria.
He stayed away from America after the authorities began investigating a bribery scandal involving William Jefferson, former US congressman.
Atiku was accused of demanding a bribe of $500,000 to facilitate the award of contracts to two American telecommunication firms in Nigeria, an allegation he denied.
On Thursday, he was accompanied by Senate President Bukola Saraki who is the director-general of his campaign;  Uche Secondus, national chairman of the PDP and some key members of the opposition party.
Atiku had on several occasions been challenged by the All Progressives Congress to enter the US as they believed he would be arrested over allegations of corruption.

However, he has gone ahead to prove them wrong.
Tweeting the photo, he wrote: "Just arrived Washington D.C for meeting with US government officials, Nigerians living in D.C metropolis and the business community. -AA" 

Below is a video of his arrival:
