“What will I even go to do in America”, Atiku queried during an interview with the Hausa service of the Voice of America, VOA.
Recall, that Atiku who floored other 12 Aspirants to pick the PDP’s Presidential ticket in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, is being dogged by allegations of corruption in the United States.
Recall also, that the former Vice President and his fourth wife, Jennifer Douglas, an American citizen, were allegedly indicted in 2010, in a 328-page American Senate Committee report, for transferring over $40 million “suspect funds” to America, from offshore accounts, between 2002 and 2008.
The report had said: “Ms. Douglas helped her husband bring over $40 million in suspect funds into the United States, including at least $1.7 million in bribe payments from Siemens AG, a German corporation, and over $38 million from little known offshore corporations, primarily LetsGo Ltd. Inc., Guernsey Trust Company Nigeria Ltd., and Sima Holding Ltd.”
