Obasanjo Lobbying For US Visa For Atiku – APC by sirequity(m): 6:47pm On Oct 12, 2018
The All Progressive Congress (APC) has alleged that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has initiated moves to secure a United States’ visa for Atiku Abubakar.

Mr Abubakar, a former vice president and a presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 presidential election, was endorsed by Mr Obasanjo on Thursday.

The APC in a statement signed by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, said the party got the information from its intelligence unit.

Mr Nabena said the former president was lobbying US authorities to withdraw the country’s entry ban placed on Abubakar who is widely known as Atiku.



“We have come across reports that former President Olusegun Obasanjo has made moves to secure United States entry visa for the presidential candidate of the PDP ,Alh. Atiku Abubakar, whose candidacy he endorsed on Thursday,” the party said.

“It is learnt that that the former President who during and after leaving office insisted on Atiku’s unsuitability to govern Nigeria based on his knowledge of the latter’s extensive corrupt practices while he served as Vice President, is lobbying US authorities to withdraw the ban reportedly placed on Atiku from entering the United States following a 2005 $500,000 bribery scandal that involved Atiku, his fourth wife, Jennifer and former United States Congressman, William Jefferson.

Recall that the former president while in office had deployed enormous resources of the country on a global dragnet coordinated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in getting Atiku prosecuted for corrupt enrichment and money laundering.

A report by the United States Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, chaired by Senator Carl Levin reported that Atiku used offshore companies to siphon millions of dollars to his fourth wife in the United States, Jennifer while still the vice president of Nigeria between 2000 and 2008.



The report further stated that then President Bush had on the strength of his report, barred Atiku and other corrupt politically exposed persons from being issued visa to the United States, a reason for which he has been unable to travel to the United States till date.

“Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s intervention in Alh.Abubakar Atiku’s ban from the United States of America is evidence of Obasanjo’s legendary hypocrisy and self-serving interest in national affairs,” the statement read.

The Albatross in the room for Athiefku.

OBJ will do anything just to get his hands back on our commonwealth through Athiefku.

Despite calling Atiku a thief and a crook and moraly bankrupt person he is now running around trying to help him fix his US ban issue. The same Ban he was given for stealing millions of dollars from Nigeria and stashing in US through his 4th wife while he was VP under Obasanjo.

Yes and we have chosen a good man in PMB

Obasanjo on Atiku:

"What I did not know, which came out glaringly later, was his parental background which was somewhat shadowy, his propensity to corruption, his tendency to disloyalty, his inability to say and stick to the truth all the time,a propensity for poor judgment, his belief and reliance on marabouts , his lack of transparency, his trust in money to buy his way out on all issues and his readiness to sacrifice morality, integrity, propriety truth and national interest for self and selfish interest"

Atiku Abubakar WAS corrupt before he defected to APC. APC accepted him and washed him clean of every atom of corruption. They called him an asset, a prize and a spectacular Nigerian. Now this spectacular Nigerian wants to deliver the country from APC's cluelessness and ineptitude and they are crying foul? We say yes to anyone but buhari. Not because he is buhari but because he picked us from the frying pan into a blazing inferno. BMG - buhari must go.
