The Boss can authoritatively reveal that Former Vice President and People’s Democratic Party ( PDP) Presidential Candiadate left for the United States of America from Lagos, Nigeria’ commercial capital.
The news that Atiku is on his way to the United States has caught politicians especially those in the ruling party napping and we gathered from reliable sources that calls have been going back and forth to confirm what will certainly be the game changer that will give the PDP campaign a huge boost.
Our sources revealed that Atiku left from George Hotel, Ikoyi with his entourage and was decked in pair of chinos and T-shirt, he also dorned a sport jacket and looked very trendy.
One prominent member of the entourage we gathered was Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki who is also the Director- General of the Atiku/Obi Presidential Campaign.
Dr Saraki’s presence in the US-bound team will certainly confound many because up till late last night, he was spotted at the Service of Songs for late Ide Ahaba of Asaba, Chief Sunny Odogwu in Victoria Island.
Saraki, who was at the event with PDP ‘ s Vice Presidential Candidate, HE Peter Obi and Governor Liyel Imoke not only spent quite some time there, he even delivered a speech.
The Senate President said he was there as a member of the family ( Yinka, the younger brother of his wife is married to Ngozi Odogwu) and paid glowing tribute to the top businessman. He told all present that Obi and Imoke were the official representatives of Alhaji Atiku.
Our sources revealed that when they left Harbour Point, the venue of the service, they headed straight to George Hotel.
On arriving George Hotel, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce was there. Dr. Saraki exchanged pleasantries with all those around including Senator Bruce and then had a brief meeting with Alhaji Atiku and left.
Atiku also reportedly met with Peter Obi and left. Peter Obi was at the hotel to honour an interview appointment with CNBC Africa.
Unknown to those around, Alhaji Atiku and Senator Saraki were both heading to the airport and were going to take off to the US.
The story in town was that Peter Obi was the one scheduled to visit America anytime soon. Only very few people were in the know of this trip. It was indeed a well kept secret.
