APC Counters Atiku’s Visit To US

When a country is being governed by one political party (Single System), the throne is seen as saint. The followers in such scenario do not have option but to concure at all cost. 

Multi-party system being practised in Nigeria many say is the best option though at their own detriment. One of the merits remains the unending face-off that that counters there differences.

This, opposition parties see to day to activities of the incumbent. But the big question remains: Are they not birds of the same feathers? Nigeria under the palms of All Progressive Congress(APC) and so-called longest People’s Democratic Party (PDP) alongside other smaller parties.

In this report, the US chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has spoken saying whether Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), visits the US or not, his character remains “questionable”.

According to Sahara Reporters, this was contained in a statement issued by Adesegun Labinjo, Chairman of the US chapter of the party, on Friday.

Meanwhile, until Thursday, Atiku had not visited the US in more than 10 years, as a result of allegations of corruption-related matters, including one involving US congressman Williams Jefferson which claimed that part of the $100,000 cash found in his refrigerator was intended as bribe for Atiku for his role in helping American firm iGate secure a contract to expand broadband in Nigeria.

However, he landed at the Washington Dulles International Airport on Thursday evening, accompanied by Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Speaking on the visit, Labinjo said although the party had no objection to Atiku’s visit to the US, “the questionable character of the individual does not evaporate because he has stepped on the soil of America”.
