The 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 the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, whose candidacy he endorsed on Thursday.
The 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 the United States following a 2005 $500,000 bribery scandal that involved Atiku, his fourth wife Jennifer, and former United States Congressman, William Jefferson.
But in a reaction, an aide to Obasanjo challenged them to provide credible documents to back the allegation. “Let them come up with credible source now. I’m not aware of anything like that,” Kehinde Akinyemi said.
