Why we can’t comment on Atiku’s visa status – U.S. Consulate

An official of the U.S. Consulate in Lagos on Friday said the issuance of U.S. visa to a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, and anyone else. is strictly a confidential matter.

He said the U.S. Government will not discuss the issue in public for any reason.

The Public Affairs Officer (PAO), of the U.S. Consulate in Lagos, Brussel Brooks, made this known against the backdrop of the controversy surrounding the U.S. visa status of the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).

Mr Abubakar has been flayed by politicians of the ruling party, APC, for his perceived ‘inability’ to secure a U.S. visa due to the report of an American congressional panel that investigated allegations of financial impropriety against the ex-vice president and others years ago.
