Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president of Nigeria and the presidential candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, will on Saturday return to Nigeria from his short trip to the United States, online reports say.

Atiku, alongside Bukola Saraki, the director-general of his Presidential Campaign Council and the Senate President of Nigeria, Osita Chidoka, the chief strategists of  his campaign, and others are currently in the US where the former vice president will address Nigerians, US Chamber of commerce and attend to other engagement with US top government functionaries.

His US trip has caused a lot of ripples within the ruling APC, because he has been publicly called out to enter the US, hinging that around some corruption allegations where his name was mentioned, his political ambition took a “quick shine” when he eventually landed in the US on Thursday Afternoon putting an end to the speculation that he dare not enter America.

Nigerians and others around the world are keenly waiting to behold a spectacular view of the Presidential Debate tomorrow, it is not clear if President Muhammadu Buhari will honour the debate.

Atiku has used several occasions to challenge Buhari to be brave enough to encounter him at the Presidential Debate, but information available to WailersNG, uggests that, Buhari’s senior aides may have advised him to stay away due to his recent ill-fated performance at the #NGCandidate interview session organized a few days ago by the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA).

  1. PMB.may no come for the debate, or he might hired someone else due to his inability standard of old aged. it’s advisable for the Mr.president to rest for now and enjoys his life quietly. God save Nigeria.

  2. No matter what Atiku is going to say, he can’t convince us, because we all know that is returning to the government house to steal what he left behind.
