The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, on Friday would be embarking on a trip to Europe.
At the conclusion of his European trip, the former Vice President will also visit his family in Dubai, a statement by Paul Ibe, his media adviser said.
The trip comes about three weeks after Abubakar met with Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers, in London.
According to Ibe, the trip is a continuation of an earlier business trip of three weeks ago.
“He will be travelling immediately after his meeting on Friday in Lagos, with the leadership of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) alongside the PDP vice presidential candidate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta,” the statement reads.
“Today’s trip is in continuation of an earlier business trip of three weeks ago.
“At the conclusion of his European trip, the former Vice President will also use the opportunity to visit his family in Dubai.
“His trip is for business and family purposes and has nothing to do with medicals as being insinuated in some quarters.”
Atiku is infamous for spending most his time in Dubai after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared President Muhammadu Buhari winner of the 2019 general election.
