US Ban Was Disinformation- Atiku Opens Up by Barondenigeria: 4:34pm On Jan 18, 2019
In an interview with VOA Hausa Service in Washington DC, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar said stories that he was banned from the United States was ‘disinformation’.

He spoke on Thursday, after his arrival to the US capital, where he lodged at Trump International Hotel.

Here is the transcript of the interview conducted by VOA’s Aliyu Mustapha Sokoto

VOA: What has been in the news for many years has come to past right now I’m together with the former Vice President of Nigeria and the Presidential flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after he had just returned from some interactive session with some high ranking Congress Men and Women. Your excellency, now that you have visited Washington D.C, does it have to do with those who said you cannot come to the United State of America or the visit is for what purpose?

Atiku: Aliyu I told you before that my coming to the United State is in the hands of Americans if they decided to issue a Visa to me I will definitely come and if they refused to give me I cannot come. And now they have issued it to me and I am here. I’m having some positive discussions with some of the officials. I was in the Congress and I had discussions with some high ranking Congress men and Women about Nigeria and how Nigeria intends to improve her relationship with the United States of America.

VOA: After visiting the Congress, do you intend to meet with some other people?

Atiku: Yes, by tomorrow (Friday) I will go to the State Department in order to have vital discussions with some of their officials.

VOA: Will you also meet with the members of the United States Chamber of Commerce?

Atiku: Yes, I will meet them tomorrow (Friday) by the Grace of God.

VOA: Who invited you to the United State?

Atiku: I was invited by many organizations in United States.

VOA: Before some people are saying that you cannot come to the United States of America but now you are here people will stop doubting.

Atiku: The whole thing is about misinformation

VOA: What do you mean by misinformation?

Atiku: Because for a very long time they have been lying to them (Nigerians) and they agreed; I tried to explain to them but they refused to listen. And I hope now people are going to understand.

VOA: Your coming to America has shown that you are going to have some interactions with some top officials of the United State are they in support of your candidacy?

Atiku: Yes.

VOA: Are you convinced that the United States Government are in support of your candidacy?

Atiku: There is no doubt because the United State is ready to support any country that is practicing democracy.

VOA: People know you as a businessman; do you think that your business background and experience will influence the United States Government to support you?

Atiku: One good thing is that Nigeria is a country that is practicing democracy and everyone knows that we have played a significant role and have done a lot to sustain democratic governance in Nigeria and it is very important.

He went there to give them Nigerian wealth in exchange for a visa.

Ladies and gentlemen, be careful how you comment here these days.

APC zombies are frustrated and desperate. Their desperation is at an all-time high this week (you know why grin grin grin). They are looking for whom to transfer aggression. So, try not to break the rules while hitting their heads with facts so that they won't call the mod to ban you out of desperation and frustration.

We will vote ATIKUOBI in 2019 for a robust economy and a better Nigeria.

If he doesn't perform well...we will still vote him out in 2023.

Anything except Buhari.

Now that Atiku has finally visited the U. S against insinuations from different quarters in the camp of the APC I guess they are going to change the narrative this time around

cool

My joy is that Atiku is also an Hausa man like Buhari hence he too can reach their audience via VOA Hausa service, ensuring the northern votes will be shared. He will then net the votes of South South, South East and a chunk of South West and BOOM.....he will claim the prize next month
