Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is confirmed to have arrived in the U.S after 13 years of abstaining from the country.

His Media Adviser, Mr. Paul Ibeh, who had earlier doubted the journey, on Thursday said in a statement that Abubakar arrived at 8:20 p.m. Nigerian time and 4:20 p.m. Washington D.C. time.

Abubakar, he said, would meet with the Nigerian business community in the U.S.

He is also expected to meet with U.S. government officials during the visit, Ibeh said.

“Wednesday, Abubakar met with the business community in Lagos at an interactive session to unveil his plans to get Nigeria working again.

“Thursday morning, he left Abuja accompanied by the Director-General of PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation and Senate President Bukola Saraki for the United States.

“Atiku Abubakar will in the course of his trip hold meetings with the U.S. government officials, the business community and the Nigerian community,” the statement read in part.

Ibeh said the PDP Presidential Candidate was expected to return to the country on Saturday, Jan 19.

Atiku, who is the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was then being rumoured to have arrived the United States on Thursday night.

In a tweet, Mr. Dele Momodu, Publisher of Ovation Magazine, confirmed that Abubakar was in U.S.
