Atiku on arrival

An excited presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is back in the country after his US trip.

He arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja at about 3 p.m.

In his company was the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who was also excited.

He is scheduled to participate in a presidential debate Saturday evening.

His trip to the US has been a source of controversy following the widespread news that he was wanted over alleged money laundering among other sins in the country.

The Presidency had earlier warned the United States not to grant him visa, saying that it could be interpreted for endorsing his presidential ambition.

However, Atiku arrived the US Thursday and held talks with government officials and the Nigerian business community.

In its reaction to the US visit, the Presidency had said that he would be probed over alleged corrupt practices that led to the collapse of Bank PHB.

Atiku had, however, replied, saying that it was a mark of jittery on the part of the Federal Government.

He denied involvement in any scam.
