*PDP candidate to meet Nigerians, business community during weeklong campaign
The Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has left Nigeria for political campaigns in the United States of America.
In spite of claims that he couldn’t travel to the US, Atiku visited the country in 2018 in the company of Dr. Bukola Saraki, the former president of the Senate, and other PDP chieftains. That trip to the US four years ago was essential because it dispelled any concerns that Atiku couldn’t visit the North American country.
Beginning his week-long electioneering campaign, Atiku will be in the US to interact with PDP members in North America as well as Nigerians in the diaspora as part of his programmes and engagements.
He would also meet with top Nigerian business leaders based in the US and later meet with young Nigerian professionals, among other meetings with some business communities.
Atiku had three weeks ago flagged off his electioneering campaign in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state. It was followed by the Kaduna campaign and another, last Saturday, in Benin City.
According to a preliminary presidential campaign schedule, Atiku is anticipated to return to Nigeria on Monday, October 31, and, by Tuesday, November 1, 2022, it would be the turn of Ekiti State, while the campaign rally in Ondo State would hold on Wednesday, November 2.
