The All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken a swipe on Obasanjo, it accused the former president of lobbying the American state to lift a visa ban on Atiku Abubakar, the 2019 presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Mr. Yekini Nabena, the APC spokesperson made this known today in a statement made available to newsmen.
Yekini said report made available to APC shows Obasanjo is making all necessary efforts to get USA lift ban on Atiku and allow him entrance into the country.
Yekini says the US ban Atiku from entering their country following a 2005 $500,000 bribery scandal that involved Atiku, his fourth wife, Jennifer and former United States Congressman, William Jefferson.
Olusegun Obasanjo’s attempt to make US lift ban on Atiku is the height of legendary hypocrisy and self-serving interest in national affairs,” Mr Nabena said.
This is coming less than 48 hours Obsanjo endorsed Atiku for 2019 presidential election.
