The APC in a statement by its chairman, Adeshegun Labinjo, the APC said Atiku should still be held accountable.
The party said “the questionable character of the individual does not evaporate because he has stepped on the soil of America”.
“A thief remains a thief no matter where he or she visits. Obviously, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku has every reason to have kept off the USA given the cloak of corruption he is wearing.
“After a long spell of noticeable absence and factual concerns about Alhaji Abubakur Atiku’s antecedents in the USA arising from his dealings with former Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana, who was convicted and served a jail term on account of bribery resulting from a telecommunication transaction in Nigeria, Atiku is now here again in the US.
The APC claimed there were records that Atiku engaged in money laundering.
They also described him as a self-centered corrupt Vice President under President Obasanjo’s regime.
“Certainly, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku‘s entry and presence in the USA is a mockery of President Bush Presidential Proclamation 7750 which affirms the denial of US visa to foreign officials involved with corruption and other supporting legislations by the congress. APC-USA believes that Alhajl Abubakar Atiku should be held accountable for his involvement m money laundering.
Recall that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiiku Abubakar, has met with Congressman Jason Smith as part of his visit to the United States.
In a photo shared by the spokesperson of the former vice president, Segun Showunmi, on Friday, January 18, Atiku met with the lawmaker representing Missouri’s 8th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.
