Speaking on AIT’s Kakaaki programme on Wednesday, Saraki, who is the Director-General, Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, described the allegation as nonsensical.

He said,

“These are desperate claims. When you are campaigning and you see that you have suffered a setback, just move on and don’t make a fool of yourself. To say the candidate travelled on my merit is not true.

“He applied for his visa, was given the visa and he was invited to attend functions. How do you do that? How do you travel as an aide? That is ridiculous! They know it. It is very difficult for them to respond because they have sold a lot of propaganda and lies to Nigerians.

“I remember when we sat a lot of young people down when we started and introduced him (Atiku) as our candidate and they said they would support him because he has a good agenda for the youth and knows how to create jobs but the concern was that the government said Atiku could not travel to America and how can we have a President that cannot travel to America?

“And he (Atiku) always said it was not a problem but it was important for us to address the problem and put it behind us and because the other party was using it as propaganda, we decided to go to America and instead of them to keep quiet and move on, they say he went as my aide.”

  1. I see….. Whether he travelled or not, that’s his problem ooo
    Me I don’t even know to believe again about these politicians but I know that God will help us make the right choice

  2. We are just here nodding our head over difference story on how he ran away to America, mean while it still did not end here

  3. We honestly don’t know what the truth is when it comes to Nigerians politicians, because they sell lies better than the truth .

  4. If it thus, it’s a big offence because general Muhammad buhari as instructs that there is no any candidates should travel to U.S for one reason or the others. Because they may come back with ammunition.

  5. Which ever way Wheather as an adie or presidential candidate, the issue is how to move Nigeria forward through all this travelling.

  6. Whether he travel to US or not that does not concerns Nigerian, what we all want is good governance.

  7. For me all the allegations against Atiku is just to make him seem dependant…… but still yet Atiku is my president 2019

  8. But they sent a picture of him coming back from U S so why the change of story.Nigerians is becoming something else

  9. Is Saraki not one of those who sold lies to us back then as he said? Politicians are more like prostitute, busy recycling parties as of we people are fools… If you were still in APAC am sure you will be against Atiku but reverse is the case now

  10. The travel to USA was a scam. Saraki went as Atiku bodyguard is a sure assertion else let him go alone.

  11. This issue of Atiku and US is getting too much. Whether he travelled or not shouldn’t be of concern it is winning I am intrested in

  12. How can ATIKU be Sarakis aid, even if he was with the aligation that he could not enter because of corruption they would have arrested him

  13. Who has the journey help?????
    Someone that did not help the people of Adamawa in times of need., wants to govern Nigeria, by Allah’s Might, it will never work. You did not end Boko Haram in your state .

  14. That is gross inappropriate talks. The APC led campaign is just desperate to pull down atiku and his men

  15. He travels or he didn’t travel that his business but rulers us well and don’t deceive us when you get there

  16. Politicians and their everyday lies, well if Atiku went as saraki’s aide or not is none of my business Biko.

  17. Whether he traveled or not we don’t care, all we need to do is to pray God to give us a good leader.

  18. Saying that Atiku did not travel to USA is a propaganda coming from the opposition parties, there is no clear evidence on that neither can he prove it beyond every reasonable doubt, in fact he is saying his own opinion.

  19. We honestly don’t know what the truth is when it comes to Nigerians politicians, because they sell lies better than the truth

  20. Muhammad buhari as instructs that there is no any candidates should travel to U.S for one reason or the others. Because they may come back with ammunition.

  21. Don’t deceive us when you get there, Politicians are more like prostitute, busy recycling parties as of we people are fools…

  22. You people are all confused bunch of Human beings just releasing statements that are contradicting each other

  23. I will not believe this news. Atiku traveled with Saraki to US that is undeniable even those who accused him of that acknowledged the fact about his traveling to US.

  24. APC are unnecessarily controversial. let them stop all these witch hunting and character assassination and put this country back to work

  25. Political propaganda. Politicians will just find fault in what other parties are doing. It’s so common here in Nigeria.

  26. That is not their business, whether he travels or not.
    I believe in Atiku, and I pray he should win the election

  27. Nigeria my country when will we do things right? They said he could not travel, then he travelled and now they say as an aide. God help us

  28. I still wonder why people still believe APC with their propaganda, I remember Buhari said if he become Nigeria president Nigerians will go to filling station with #50 buy fuel and still go home with change, but none of that happened.

  29. lies is all they tell we the masses politicians has seen us all as fools and can just cook up a story n sell it to the media for onward publishing n we will buy it but they should know we are not fools and we are just watching them fool themselves.

  30. Different stories everyday, which one should we belied now ? May God take control in this country

  31. One day truth will be revealed. I can’t understand you Atiku hide his traveled to US from Nigerians.

  32. The information concerning his trip to the USA since 2006 is not hidden. He was as an aide to the senate President, Saraki.

  33. Na wa o, i don’t even know what to believe anymore . Politics is one game we can’t fully understand

  34. Lies, half truths, rumours are the mainstay of all Nigeria Politician. So sick it up when you are on the receiving end
