BREAKING NEWS :, Atiku Arrives US, To Speak To Nigerians In Diaspora

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), arrived in Washington, DC on Friday, TheCable can report.

The former vice-president is reportedly scheduled to speak at the Chamber of Commerce on Friday, from 2:30pm to 4pm local time, although TheCable could not confirm the event.

The private roundtable, to be hosted by the US Chamber of Commerce and the US Africa Business Centre, is reportedly expected to hold at 1615 H street, NW 20062.

But TheCable has sent an e-mail to the centre to confirm if the roundtable will take place as there is no information about the event on the website.

TheCable had exclusively reported in December 2018 that Atiku had been issued with a US visa for the first time in 13 years.

Alleged Leaked Audio: Yes I Can Confirm It's Ameachi's Voice

Since my brother and friend, the Minister of Transportation, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi started trending with a supposedly leaked audio, where he was heard crucifying his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari, friends and colleagues had sent me different versions, seeking to know if it was his voice. I'm confirming that now. It's his voice.

Oh, they also wanted to know if he actually said those things about the president. Again, he did, clearly not in the context of what has been flying around. What you have been listening to is the doctored version of his encounter with the blackmailers, who had been on his case in over five months, asking for money and threatening to release the tape close to the election period.

So, let's talk about some of the things he said.

In one instance, he said there was poverty in the land in Buhari's three years of leadership and concluded that conversation with the fact that the solution to Nigeria's problems was to kill everyone. Any intellige…

A source in the party told TheCable that Oluwo has reached out to the camp of Agbaje ahead of the election.
The aggrieved APC member has also quit the cabinet of Akinwumi Ambode, governor of the state.
In his resignation letter, seen by TheCable, Oluwo accused the leadership of the ruling party of being anti-democratic in the process through which Babajide Sanwo-Olu emerged as the flagbearer of the APC in the 2019 governorship election.
Sanwo-Olu, who enjoyed the support of Mandate Movement, a group loyal to Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the party, made history by beating a sitting governor to the ticket of the party.
Oluwo said the governorship primary has diminished the reputation of the APC in the state.
He alleged that a powerful g…
