The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday met with the British High Commissioner, Paul Arkwright, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who is believed to be a good friend of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The meeting was held at the British High Commission in Abuja and had the National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, and the Director-General of Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Gbenga Daniel in attendance.
Though details of the meeting were not made public, there are speculations it may not be unconnected with issues surrounding the coming 2019 general elections.
The meeting came as Buhari banned 50 Nigerians from travelling outside the country, a move the PDP has described as full blown fascism.
The opposition party had added, “This draconian step is clearly targeted at members of the opposition parties, perceived political enemies of President Muhammadu Buhari, well-meaning Nigerians, including members of the business community, religious leaders, former political leaders and traditional rulers, who are perceived to be averse to President Buhari’s re-election bid.”
