The publisher of the Ovation Magazine and former presidential candidate, Dele Momodu, has reacted to the success of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in securing American visa.
Before now, Atiku had been restricted from entering America over issues bordering on corruption.
But Veloxnews reported earlier on Saturday that the former Vice President has acquired his US visa and had even jetted out of Nigeria.
It was learnt that former president Olusegun Obasanjo played a “critical” role in getting the American government to issue the visa to his former deputy with whom he was estranged for almost 15 years.
The opposition had used this as a campaign weapon before now and Momodu believes they have been now silenced.
Momodu tweeted, “I’m excited that those who used America as criteria for qualification to Nigeria’s Presidency are now singing a different tune.
“ATIKU on my mind… International diplomacy is different from local championship… When God has blessed you, please don’t block others.”
