The running mate to Alhaji Abubakar Atiku in the forthcoming 2019 General Elections, Mr. Peter Obi has described Atiku’s trip to the USA as necessary and not undertaken to prove any point. Obi was reacting to the question by the media at the Domestic Wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport yesterday on his way to the East.

Obi, who expressed surprise at the dust generated by Atiku’s trip, said that he did not see anything unusual with the trip, except that Alhaji Abubakar Atiku opted to travel when it was necessary.

On what prompted Atiku’s trip to the USA, Obi said that everything Atiku did today was prompted by his desire to see a new Nigeria after the next month’s elections.  In his words: “Though he does over 90% of his consultations at home and among Nigerians, but now and then, he has to travel to meet  different groups, especially those that will be of assistance in the new Nigerian project.”

Obi said that Atiku was pre-occupied on how to create jobs, reduce unemployment in Nigeria, abolish poverty and re-create the Nigerian economy in order to make Nigeria to start working again. “His trip is about engaging partners because he wants to hit the ground running without wasting unnecessary time.”
