Atiku Abubakar, presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, entered America on Thursday, breaking the internet.
Atiku, who had stepped foot in the country for more than 12 years, arrived in Washington years, to the shock and pleasure of many.
According to his spokesperson, Atiku will hold meeting with US government officials, the business community and the Nigerian community, during his stay.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, had for a longtime, taunted the former vice president with his inability to travel to America, following corruption allegations.
After reports that Atiku had arrived in America, many Nigerians and supporters of the presidential candidate took to social media to fire heave shots at the APC and their supporters.

Atiku only stepped on US soil and there's so much jubilation. You can imagine the joy and celebration that'll rock Nigeria when he's announced winner in February.#AtikuInAmerica

Apparently the US is worried about Buhari’s admin, I wonder what the rest of the world thinks.
Atiku is in US to discuss a way forward; consider this our first sensible representation in the US market since 2015.
The other visit was a lifeless one.#AtikuinAmerica #LGNWA

With #AtikuInAmerica, let me give sad, naive Buharists new lying talking points: Atiku's America visit was engineered. His photos are photoshopped. His videos are doctored. His interactions with US govt officials & businesspeople are nursed. His non-arrest by FBI was babalawoed.
