Atiku secures US visa, Obasanjo, Tambuwal intervene in campaign crisis

The coast is now clear for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, to visit to the United States following the issuance of a visa to him.

It was learnt that Atiku had received the visa to enable him to travel the USA, which he last visited about 13 years ago.

Atiku on Tuesday appeared at the US Embassy in Abuja, where he was interviewed and his fingerprints taken.

Sources close to him told one of our correspondents in Abuja on Saturday night that Atiku was delighted with the issuance of the visa.

Atiku had stopped visiting the USA after the FBI investigated a bribery scandal that involved a former US congressman, William Jefferson.
