A United States of America visa has been issued to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to The Cable, a family source confirmed that the former Vice-President has been issued the visa.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is also said to have played a “critical role” in getting the visa.
There had been speculations that Atiku could not enter the US due to allegations of bribery linked to a former US congressman, William Jefferson.
Although Atiku has maintained his innocence, the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) has made continued references to the visa issue.
