Nigerians on Thursday took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to react to the visit of the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, to Washington DC, the United States capital.
The former vice-president, who was seen in the company of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, is scheduled to speak at the Chamber of Commerce in the US capital on Friday, from 2:30 pm to 4 pm local time.
The private roundtable, to be hosted by the US Chamber of Commerce and the US Africa Business Centre, is going to hold at 1615 H Street, NW 20062.
Some Nigerians who got the news applauded the former vice-president for travelling to the United States after seven years of staying away from the country, while others mocked him for travelling after a decade over allegations of corruption.

#AtikuInAmerica is a wonderful development for @Atiku, however, once the Presidential election is over and he loses, his waiver expires and he won’t be able to visit again… He might as well make the most of it while he’s here…
This Atiku’s US trip has gained more attention than Buhari’s trip to see Trump #AtikuInUs #AtikuinAmerica
God willing, the next President of Nigeria, surrounded by family and friends in Washington DC #AtikuInAmerica
