PDP crisis: Like Ayu, Atiku jets out of Nigeria
THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has travelled abroad.
Paul Ibe, Media Adviser to Atiku, in a statement entitled “Atiku travels to Europe on business,” said insinuations that the trip is for medicals are not correct.
Ibe said “Atiku Abubakar will travel to Europe this afternoon on a business trip.”
Part of the statement said he “will be travelling immediately after his meeting on Friday in Lagos, with the leadership of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) alongside the PDP vice presidential candidate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta.
“Today’s trip is in continuation of an earlier business trip of 3 weeks ago. At the conclusion of his European trip, the former Vice President will also use the opportunity to visit his family in Dubai.
“His trip is for business and family purposes and has nothing to do with medicals as being insinuated in some quarters.” Ibe said.
Atiku’s trip comes days after the party’s national chairman, Iyiorcha Ayu, departed the country for Europe.
A statement by his media aide, Simon Imobo-Tswam, said Ayu will be spending the next two weeks abroad.
