I Will dislodge you, with or without US trip – Atiku tells Buhari



The Presidential Candidate of the People ’ s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar , has mocked the Federal Government over its alleged failed bid to get the United States government to deny him visa .
He also said that with or without a trip to the US , the PDP will dislodge the President Muhammadu Buhari- led All Progressives Congress at next month ’ s election .

The former Vice President also dismissed as cock and bull story , the allegation by the Minister of Information and Culture , Alhaji Lai Mohammed that he has a case to answer over the collapse of Platinum Habib Bank , otherwise known as Bank PHB .

In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday , Atiku ’ s Special Assistant on Public Communication , Mr . Phrank Shaibu said the federal government should bury its head in shame having failed to stop him from travelling to the US .

He said it was shameful that the governing APC took it upon itself to call on the authorities of another country not to grant a private citizen entry visa , which ordinarily should not be its business .

Mohammed had at the hint of the US granting Atiku visa last year , cautioned the Americans not to contemplate the gesture as it might give the impression that the foreign power is supportive of the opposition party’ s candidate .
But Atiku who arrived in the US on Thursday said the APC was jittery knowing that its government has failed , stressing that Buhari’ s days as president of Nigeria were numbered , which explains why members of the ruling party have been running from pillar to post.
