Presidential Candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is set to hold talks in the United States of America with that country’s government officials.

News Express was among the first to break the news of Atiku’s arrival in the US late on Thursday and stood by the story despite denials by Atiku’s spokesman, Mr. Paul Ibe, and officials of the Nigerian Embassy in the US.

Shortly after the News Express story, Atiku confirmed that he was indeed in the US capital, Washington, D.C, and also gave an insight into his why he is in that country.

He tweeted from his official Twitter handle @Atiku: “Just arrived Washington D.C for meeting with US government officials, Nigerians living in D.C metropolis and the business community. -AA”.

The tweet was accompanied with a photograph showing the former Vice President clutching a bouquet of flowers, along with Senate President Bukola Saraki and a lady.

Other photos showed other members of Atiku’s entourage, including former Aviation Minister, Dr. Osita Chidoka.
