NAN reports that the former governor of Edo state on Friday alleged that Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), “can only travel to Dubai”.

He said President Muhammadu Buhari’s integrity cannot be faulted anywhere in the world, hence the need for Nigerians to vote him again.

Oshiomhole made the remark in Jos during the flag-off of the re-election bid of Simon Lalong, Plateau state governor,where the minister of transport, Rotimi Ameachi was also present.

The APC chairman said: “We have a president whose integrity cannot be faulted anywhere in the world, but the PDP has a presidential candidate who can only travel to Dubai.

“We know our developmental partners. They are not only in Dubai and so we must vote a president that can travel to any part of the world to lure investors into the country.”

Contrary to the assertion of the APC chairman, the PDP presidential candidate visited the UK in April 2018, where he spoke at Chatham House.

you will recall that news men report that visits Chatham house in the UK. “The visit to the UK by Atiku Abubakar, one of Nigeria’s most successful business leaders and foremost advocates for restructuring and free trade, is a continuation of his life-long commitment to find real solutions to help rescue Nigeria from its current economic crisis and set it on the path of economic growth and prosperity,” the statement added”.
