APC says Obasanjo lobbying US to withdraw Atiku’s US entry ban

All Progressives Congress (APC) says it has come across credible reports that former President Olusegun Obasanjo has made moves to secure United States entry visa for presidential candidate of PDP, Mr Atiku Abubakar, whose candidacy he endorsed on Thursday.

APC in a statement issued yesterday through its acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, said it learnt that the former president was lobbying US authorities to withdraw the ban reportedly placed on Atiku from entering United States following a 2005 $500,000 bribery scandal that involved Atiku, his fourth wife Jennifer, and former United States Congressman, Mr William Jefferson.

But in a reaction, an aide to Obasanjo challenged APC to provide credible documents to back the allegation. “Let them come up with credible source now. I’m not aware of anything like that,” Mr Kehinde Akinyemi said.
