PDP Breaks Silence On Atiku’s France’s Trip
Mr. Paul Ibe, the media aide to the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to speculations concerning his principal’s whereabouts.
Ibe, in a statement said Atiku traveled to Europe on business.
Ibe said that the former Vice President traveled on Monday night on a scheduled trip to meet with the technical partners of one of his business entities that were impacted by the COVID-19 global lockdown and the consequent economic downturn.
According to Ibe, the meeting would also focus on conclusive discussions for a planned expansion of its production facility.
However, there have been speculations from some quarters, including from members of the APC, that Atiku had traveled to France for medical treatment.
The Director of New Media of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Femi Fani-Kayode, earlier in a series of tweets, said Atiku slumped in Abuja after arriving from Kaduna where he held his campaign on Monday.
He added that as a result, the PDP presidential candidate had been taken to Paris, France for proper medical attention.
