‘I Went To Study In Cambridge’- Atiku Speaks On Rumoured Relocation Abroad
Former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar, has opened up his long absence from the country.
Recall there was news that Atiku had abandoned the country and relocated to Dubai after he lost the 2019 election to President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Atiku, he had no option but to leave the country to learn new things as he went to study for a masters degree in international relations at Cambridge University.
Atiku made the submission after the PDP board of trustees (BOT) meeting. He gave credence to former President Obasanjo for recommending the course to that University to him.
He said: “Many people have wondered where I have been since September last year and it became a matter of rumour among many people and all what not,
“I want to say that I was away, because I went back to school and I have finished my lectures in May, where I read masters in international relations from Cambridge University.
“I want to use this opportunity to thank our former President Obasanjo for actually recommending me for that course to that university.”
“I believe PDP will lead to the expectation of Nigerians because they know us more than any other party, because we provided the best governors since the return of democracy to this country. And I believe Nigerians will not forget those good old days,” he said.
“Yesterday, people were rejoicing that there is crisis in the PDP. Today, I don’t know, because they will be crying that the PDP has resolved its own crisis.”
