I am not going to America — Atiku

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has debunked media reports that he will be in the United States later this month.

Reports over the weekend said Mr Abubakar would speak at a trade and investment gathering in Washington D.C. later this month.

The organisers listed Mr Abubakar’s name as number one amongst dozens of personalities they said had been invited to the event.

Governors Nyesom Wike and Ibrahim Dankwambo, Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and Trade and Investment Minister, Okechukwu Elelamah, are amongst those also said to have been invited.

“There is no such invitation to the former vice president,” his spokesperson, Paul Ibe, told PREMIUM TIMES Monday. “We are not aware of such invitation and we do not know how they managed to put his name on their list.”
