“I Am Readily Available To Enter America” – Atiku Says
Former Nigerian Vice President, Atiku Abubakar said he is ready to go the United States of America, in an interview with Dele Momodu.
Atiku, who has been unable to travel to the United States since he left office in 2007 has declared that he is ready to visit the North American country.
He attributed his failure to go to America on the Embassy not giving him Visa.
“If America says come today, I will board the flight and go there soonest,”
“I applied to America for visa which was not granted. A man who is afraid of being arrested won’t go near the American Embassy, it is simple logic.”
He insists he has no question to answer as regards corruptions.
“I have thrown the challenge repeatedly that anyone who has any corrupt charges against me should come forward.
I never stole government money. Do you think President Obasanjo would not have exposed me if there was any such act of stealing?”
According a report by premium times, Mr Abubakar has sold his house in the US., after he is not allowed to travel to the country. He said that was due to the fact he no longer has any use for the house.
Many of his critics have said he isn’t allowed in America based on corruption charges, going back several years.
